Are you looking for a local dentist for your child that accepts Medicaid or TRICARE? The search for a good, affordable dentist can be frustrating, but Kool Smiles makes it easy.
Kool Smiles is a national network of dentists with over 120 locations that accept Medicaid, TRICARE, and other insurance programs.
Finding answers to your questions about dental care and Medicaid can be difficult. This list of frequently asked questions can change that.
Does my child need to see a pediatric dentist? Are there pediatric dentists available at Kool Smiles?
Although pediatric dentists specialize in treating children, most general dentists have experience treating children as well. Kool Smiles is made up of a network of general and pediatric dentists, all of whom regularly treat children of all ages.
How often should my child see the dentist?
Once your child turns one year old or when the first tooth comes in, it is recommended that they see a dentist every six months.
Will Medicaid cover the full cost of my child’s routine dental exams?
In most cases, Medicaid will cover the cost of your child’s routine exams until he or she is 21 years old. It is important to mention, however, that coverage can vary depending on where you live. Call us today for a full list of dental services covered in your state.
I’m not sure if I qualify for Medicaid. How can I find out?
You have two simple options:
1. Apply on the government’s Health Insurance Marketplace website. Here, you will find out if you qualify for Medicaid or a State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP), both of which Kool Smiles accepts.
2. Visit your state’s Medicaid website.
How can I find my local Kool Smiles?
Simply visit our website and enter your city, state, or zip code.
