If you receive Medicaid, you may have had trouble finding a dentist that accepts coverage for your child. Here’s why—only 32% of dentists in private practice report treating patients on public assistance.
At Kool Smiles, our goal is to help bridge that gap by offering dental services to patients who receive Medicaid, TRICARE, SCHIP, and other programs.
Not only does a majority of dentists not accept Medicaid, the ones who do often limit the number of Medicaid patients they will see. So, even if you have made an appointment, they can turn you away if they have already met their Medicaid maximum prior to your visit.
At Kool Smiles, we accept Medicaid at every location and never put a limit on the number of Medicaid patients we will see.
Today, more and more preschool-aged children are going to the dentist with severe tooth decay—a condition that is preventable with regular brushing, flossing, and visits to the dentist.
The dental professionals at Kool Smiles understand that good dental hygiene starts at a young age, and we believe every child has the right to high-quality dental care regardless of their financial situation or insurance type.
All of the dental professionals at Kool Smiles have experience working with kids. Our offices are decorated in fun, kid-friendly colors that spark their imagination and our large waiting areas have toys, activities, and playgrounds for children.
