At Kool Smiles, we don’t just shape smiles, we also shape the lives of children all across the U.S. We were founded on the belief that every child deserves quality dental care.
While many of our dental professionals are general dentists, in an effort to meet the needs of every patient, many of our locations have in-house pediatric specialists available as well.
Call us today to make an appointment for your child!
A pediatric dentist is a dental specialist dealing specifically with the oral health of children from infancy to their teen years.
Many pediatric dentists have two additional years of training after dental school. During that time, they focus on management and treatment of children’s developing teeth, child behavior, physical growth and development, and some of the special needs of children’s oral health care.
Some common reasons to take your child to a pediatric dentist are:
At Kool Smiles, we can take care of all of your child’s dental health needs. After your kid’s first visit, we can determine if it’s necessary for your child to see a pediatric or general dentist.
If your child does need to see a pediatric dentist, many of our locations have in-house pediatric dentists.
You don’t have to be a pediatric dentist to work with kids, though. The majority of our healthcare professionals are general dentists who love and work well with children.
At Kool Smiles, the entire staff is trained and committed to giving your kid safe, clean, fun, and interactive dental health care.
One of our goals is to make sure that all kids receive quality dental care. Recently we proved true to our word by providing more than $6 million in uncompensated care.
We know that not all parents work on the same budget, and in order to make dental healthcare available to every child, we accept Medicaid, TRICARE, and SCHIP without limiting the number of Medicaid patients we see.
We also have convenient weekday and weekend hours so that all parents can get their children to the dentist.
If you’d like to see why we’re the best in providing great dental care for kids, call us today or find a location near you to schedule an appointment for your kids.
