Easy Ways to Get Free or Low-Cost Dental Care

Free dental care is very hard to find, but it is possible through some state-funded programs like Medicaid and charity events like Kool Smiles’ Sharing Smiles Day.

In this article, we’ll show you different ways to make free and low-cost dental care a reality for your children so they can have the healthy smiles they deserve.

Is Dental Care Important?

The United States’ government understands how important dental care is to children’s overall well-being and realizes that not everyone can afford it. As a result, all states are required to provide dental coverage for children whose parents are covered by Medicaid.

Medicaid will cover the entire cost of the following procedures:

  • Regular checkups and cleanings
  • Filling cavities to relieve pain and clear infection
  • Tooth restoration for broken, decayed or chipped teeth
  • Dental braces if straight teeth are needed to maintain overall health

At Kool Smiles, we happily welcome all children covered by Medicaid because we believe that no one should go without the dental care they need and deserve. Plus, we never limit the number of Medicaid patients we see.

Find Affordable Dental Care at Kool Smiles

Kool Smiles was founded with the mission to provide high-quality, affordable dental care to kids who need it most and are often overlooked by the health care community. We believe every child deserves to have a healthy smile.

Our fees for dental care are some of the lowest in the country and we offer a variety of payment options for your convenience.

We accept most private and government-funded insurance plans such as Medicaid, TRICARE, and the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) which can cover the cost of dental care. We also accept cash, credit, or CareCredit to help offset the upfront cost of dental care.
