Get Emergency Dental Care With or Without Insurance

In most cases, dental insurance plans do cover emergency dental care. If your child is covered by Medicaid, emergency dental work is also covered.

If you’re looking for emergency dental care without insurance, your child can still get emergency dental care at Kool Smiles. We have many payment options that make it possible.

If your child has suffered a severe dental trauma and needs immediate emergency help, you should call 911 right away.

What Is a Dental Emergency?

A dental emergency is a situation that causes severe damage or infection to your child’s teeth or gums that needs to be handled right away.

Your child may have an emergency dental situation if they have an injury that breaks, chips or otherwise damages the teeth, or causes severe dental pain.

Does My Insurance Cover Dental Emergencies?

The procedures that different insurance plans cover vary between insurance providers, but, in general, most major insurance companies provide coverage for dental emergencies. At Kool Smiles, we will work with you to determine what your insurance plan covers and what the out-of-pocket expense will be.

Kool Smiles accepts most major insurance plans, as well as State Children’s Health Insurance Plans (SCHIP), state-specific children’s dental coverage plans, Medicaid, and TRICARE.

If you have questions about what your insurance plan covers, simply talk to one of the friendly staff members at your local Kool Smiles location or call us today.

Emergency Dental Care Without Insurance

If you don’t have dental insurance, or your dental insurance plan doesn’t cover emergency care, bring your child to Kool Smiles. We believe that emergency dental care should be available to all children who need it, regardless of the cost.

That’s why we pride ourselves in accepting a variety of payment methods to help families afford their children’s dental procedures. All of our offices accept payment for services in the form of cash, credit, debit, and even CareCredit to help spread the cost of care out over time.

In addition, Kool Smiles works hard to keep the cost of dental procedures low so all families can afford the very best dental care for their children.

Bring Your Child to Kool Smiles for Emergency Dental Care

If your child is experiencing a dental emergency and needs immediate attention, call 911. If the emergency is less severe and your child is already a Kool Smiles patient, get to Kool Smiles immediately.

We’ll be able to help your child right away if you come in during business hours. If it’s after business hours, give us a call and we’ll direct you to an experienced on-call doctor.
