Looking for a dentist near you? Children are even more prone to tooth decay and other dental health issues than adults and less likely to notice them on their own. One of the many benefits of regular visits to the dentist is catching these problems early. Unfortunately, finding a dentist’s office that’s inviting and comfortable for your children can be hard.
At Kool Smiles, we know that dental visits can be scary for children and their parents, especially those who haven’t been before. When you visit our dentistry in Richmond, VA on Mechanicsville Pike, your children will enjoy the indoor playground and our colorful, welcoming environment. Our friendly dentists and nurses explain each procedure to your child so they feel comfortable, whether it’s a simple cleaning or a filling.

Kool Smiles brings dental care to underserved communities and provides several payment options. That’s because we believe that quality dental services should be affordable for all families.
As a way to serve the community, Kool Smiles hosts an annual Sharing Smiles Day, during which our staff provides no-cost dental care for youth. Call 254-781-0553 or read more out about this event and how to register online.
Kool Smiles partners with local organizations to educate children about oral health. If you’d like our team to visit your school, day care or other organization, please let us know.
We believe everyone deserves access to great dental care at an affordable price. Unfortunately, that’s not always possible. It can be difficult for many families to find dental care that is both high quality and affordable.
At Kool Smiles, you don’t have to sacrifice quality to be able to afford dental care. Each one of our providers is fully licensed and approved by the Virginia Board of Dentistry. In addition, all of our dentists undergo additional internal training and stay up-to-date on the latest trends in dental health through continuing education.
Our Richmond team is comprised of general dentists and specialists, including:
Most families are not familiar with the many different dental specialties that exist. Fortunately, they can still provide great dental care for their children.
What you need to know it usually rather simple. Typically, your child’s primary care provider will be a general dentist. General dentists are the “first face” of dental care, and they handle the majority of treatment for your child’s dental health needs. When you’re scheduling a regular checkup, for example, you should go with a general dentist unless you’ve already been referred to a specialist, or you’re absolutely sure you need to see that specialist. Normally, it’s a safe bet to see a general dentist first. A general dentist can spot problem areas as they grow during physical examinations and will refer your child to a specialist if it’s needed.
There are several reasons you’ll want to follow this process. The first, and perhaps most important, is that specialists are often more expensive than general dentists, and they’re often less likely to accept plans like Medicaid. Specialists are also usually harder to find than general dentists. There are far fewer pediatric dentists in the United States than there are general dentists, for example.
