FAQ: Children's Dentists and Medicaid
It's recommended that children visit the dentist after their first birthday. The following questions and answers can help prepare you for your trip to Kool Smiles.
Q. Do kids have to have a pediatric dentist?
What's most important is that your child sees a dentist on a regular basis. Routine care prevents more serious problems. A general dentist is well qualified to handle exams, cleanings, x-rays, fillings, and crowns.
Many Kool Smiles offices have both pediatric and general dentists on staff. If your child needs to see a specialist, and there isn't one available in the office, the dentists at Kool Smiles will be able to connect you with the right person.
Q. What if my child has serious problems with his or her teeth?
When your kids get routine dental care, problems can be detected early or even avoided. For example, if your child's baby teeth aren't coming in or falling out properly, a visit to a pediatric dentist might be needed. If that's the case, we'll refer you and make sure your child gets the necessary help.
Q. How do I know if Medicaid will pay for my child's dental work?
Medicaid is a federal program that's managed by the states. Medicaid must provide at minimum:
- Relief from infection or pain
- Maintenance of dental health
- Restoration of teeth
Every Kool Smiles location accepts Medicaid. To be certain your child's care is covered by Medicaid, you can give us a call.
