For many families, it can be hard to find dentists that take state insurance or Medicaid plans to cover dental work.
At Kool Smiles, we have made it our mission to provide quality dental care to all children, regardless of insurance provider. Every child deserves access to quality dental care at affordable prices.
We pride ourselves on the ability to help finance dental care for children in underserved communities. In addition to Medicaid, TRICARE, and State Children’s Health Insurance Programs (SCHIP), our convenient locations accept state insurance plans for a large number of states.
Some of these state-specific plans include:

Many of the state insurance plans we accept include dental exams, cleanings, fillings, x-rays, fluoride treatment, and more. Call your local Kool Smiles office to ask about your insurance options.
Options for families enrolled in state or federal insurance plans can feel limited at times, but efforts have been made to expand access to affordable dental care.
Under Medicaid, 24 states in the U.S. have experienced at least a 10% increase in the number of children who receive dental care. This means that more children are able to receive the preventive dental services that help curb the risk of developing more serious problems later in life.
All of our Kool Smiles locations take state insurance and other types of insurance plans. Find the Kool Smiles nearest you, or give us a call and make an appointment for your child today.
