The Kool Smiles Kids Club Mission: Happy & Healthy Smiles

The Kool Smiles Kids Club team lives by one foundational principle: all children deserve bright, healthy smiles—no matter what their families’ income or where they may live. Our mission is to ensure that great dental health care is both accessible and affordable for all children in the United States.

That mission is fueled in part by the reality of dental care access in the U.S., as revealed by several studies concluding that regular preventative and treatment-oriented dental care services are the top unmet need in the American healthcare system (PDF). And this crisis impacts the most vulnerable population segments the hardest—lower-income areas and the children who live there most of all. This crisis affects children the most, especially children in lower-income areas.

Our experience helping connect families with great dentists in their areas has taught us the importance of kids’ attitudes towards dental health. Simply put, happy young dental patients are more compliant with the oral care habits and regular preventative care that ensures great dental health for life. That’s why we’re constantly looking for dentists and orthodontists who are serious about making kids smile from the moment they first walk into the waiting room.

Those waiting rooms are often filled with games, activities, and even playgrounds in some places, all designed to entertain kids and soothe their anxieties. And our partner dentists strive to treat their young patients (and their parents) with respect and compassion. They take time to explain to kids each step of the process and even ask their young patients for consent before undertaking the next step in the procedure.

Additionally, our kid-friendly partner dentists and their professional support staff work hard to help each child learn as much as possible about how to take care of their teeth and gums for a lifetime of healthy smiles. They’ll demonstrate proper techniques for brushing and flossing, explain what foods and drinks to choose (and which to avoid), and stress the importance of regular preventative care.

The results speak for themselves: happy kids, beautiful smiles, and a lifetime of great dental health.

Great Dental Care for Kids Also Makes Parents Smile

Children aren’t the only ones who benefit from great dental care. Parents appreciate that their children are in the best possible hands during dental appointments. And they also appreciate affordable fees for those services as well as a wide variety of payment options. Our dental partners happily accept most major forms of private insurance, as well as government-sponsored plans such as:

  • Medicaid for low-income families
  • TRICARE for military families
  • Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP)
  • Other state-funded dental insurance programs

We specifically look for dental partners who don’t limit the number of patients covered by Medicaid that they’ll see in a work day. Our partners also happily take payment in cash or credit cards. Many accept the CareCredit healthcare credit card, too. This service lets you finance dental care services in affordable monthly payments, just like a regular credit card.

If you’re looking for the best dental care for your child’s smile, look for a Kool Smiles Kids Club partner dentist in your area and call for an appointment.
