Medicaid Accepted Dentist
Finding a dentist that accepts Medicaid can be a pain. That because only a third of dentists in private practice will treat patients who rely on Medicaid or other forms of public assistance. Kool Smiles proudly welcomes families who use Medicaid, Tricare, CHIP and other programs to pay for their dental coverage.
Kool Smiles Accepts Medicaid at Every Location
According to an article published by USA Today, "Many dentists are reluctant to participate in the government program because it typically pays as little as half of what they get from patients with private insurance."
Not only do the 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.
Kool Smiles Dentists Understand Kids
All of the dental professionals at Kool Smiles have experience working with kids and our offices are decorated in fun, kid-friendly colors that spark their imagination. Our large waiting areas even have playgrounds for children while they wait.
Going to the dentist will be a fun experience for your child, not a scary one. Want more information about Kool Smiles? Sign up for our mailing list! Ready to make an appointment? Call us at (855) 854-3621 or find an office near you.
