Emergency Dental Clinics for Kids

Dental emergencies can be scary for children, and as a parent, you’ll have to spring into action to take care of the situation. If your child is suffering from a true medical emergency, you should call 911 right away.

If the emergency is not life threatening, the professionals at Kool Smiles are happy to provide quick treatment to patients. Call our support center or find a location near you.
