Although proper tooth care is serious business, a trip to the right dental clinic can put a smile on your kids’ faces.
At Kool Smiles, we design our offices just for children. We want kids to know that going to the dentist can be fun and enjoyable.
There are many steps our dental offices take to make sure young patients are at ease and enjoy their visit from start to finish.
1. Let kids have fun in the waiting room.
Kool Smiles has waiting rooms that keep kids entertained. All of our waiting rooms are colored brightly and have plenty of space to play. Most Kool Smiles waiting rooms also have playground areas.
2. Teach kids about healthy teeth.
Tooth decay is the most common disease facing children in America today. This problem is easily solved through preventative care. This includes brushing at home and regular cleanings and screenings at the dentist.
The staff at Kool Smiles makes learning about teeth fun. Outside of the dentist office, we have dental activities and fun games kids can enjoy.
3. Dentists make the difference.
Kool Smiles has more than 120 locations, each with dentists experienced in treating children. They will talk to children about each procedure and make treatment fun and educational.
Our dentists also use a “tell, show, do” approach so that kids always know what’s happening to them.
Kool Smiles has over 120 clinics across the nation focused on children’s dental care. At Kool Smiles, we are proud to provide convenient hours and accessible locations all over the country.
We accept Medicaid, state-sponsored children’s health care (SCHIP), and TRICARE as well as most private insurance providers and CareCredit.
Make an appointment for your child today or visit Kool Smiles online to find the nearest location. We’re always accepting new patients, and we look forward to helping your child smile a little brighter.
