Although Kool Smiles general dentists can handle most dental problems, occasionally a pediatric dentist is needed to handle certain oral health issues in children.
Luckily, there are pediatric specialists at many Kool Smiles locations to provide that special care. When your child has a developmental oral health issue, pediatric dentists can provide the quality dental care to address it.
Occasionally, kids need more than general dental care. For certain issues, like teeth developmental problems, a pediatric specialist may be needed. Pediatric dentists are specialists who spend an extra two to three years training specifically to treat kids.

After your kid is seen by a Kool Smiles general dentist, we can let you know if your child needs treatment from a pediatric dentist.
At Kool Smiles, we know that dental care should start at a young age, and it’s important for kids to have a positive image of the dentist. That’s why all of our offices are kid-friendly and full of fun games and activities for your kids to play with and enjoy. Most of our offices even have playgrounds.
Our dentists work hard to make sure that your kids are comfortable throughout the treatment. Parents can even go back into the treatment areas with their kids during treatments.
No matter what types of treatment your kids need, Kool Smiles is always convenient and affordable. We have over 120 offices located around the country, and we accept Medicaid at every location without limitations.
We also accept TRICARE, SCHIP, most major insurance plans, and cash or credit.
