In need of a dentistry that accepts Medicaid? If so, you’re not alone. Only 20% of dentists provide dental care to patients on Medicaid, including kids. Because of this, nearly 17 million children are unable to receive the dental care they need.
At Kool Smiles, we accept Medicaid and other forms of payment, without restricting the number of Medicaid patients we see.
Even with the Affordable Care Act’s goal to expand Medicaid coverage across the states, not all state governments agreed to extend coverage to low-income families.
Many physicians and dentists put limits on the number of Medicaid patients they accept, which makes it difficult for families to find the health and dental care they need.
At Kool Smiles, we understand how difficult it can be for families to access affordable care. We believe that all families should have the right to receive quality dental care, and with tooth decay as the number one preventive childhood illness, we want to help as many kids as we can.
All our Medicaid dentists are experienced in working with kids, and they can make sure your children leave with a cleaner, happier smile. We also help teach them proper dental hygiene so they can practice good oral habits at home between cleanings.
In addition to our qualified dentists, we also offer:
When you’re looking for a dentistry that accepts Medicaid, consider coming to Kool Smiles. Our dentists are ready to give your child a bright and healthy smile. Give us a call today, or visit one of our convenient locations for more information about our services and Medicaid.
