Brighter Smiles for Kids and Parents!
We care for our community
We believe everyone deserves to have a beautiful smile and healthy teeth. That begins with quality, accessible and compassionate dental care. Our partner dentists and their team members are committed to making your visit as pleasant, informative and effective as possible. Their teams are very experienced in children’s dentistry and are compassionate dental providers for everyone in your family.
What is General Dentistry?
Although our partners are experienced in treating kids’ dental needs, as general dentists, they provide dental care to patients of all ages, from infants to the elderly. Developing a customized dental hygiene plan for every patient to prevent, diagnose, and treat dental problems, from tooth decay, gum disease and other issues.
A focus on prevention
Kool Smiles Kids Club partners focus on prevention. The general dentists at your office will focus on oral health and hygiene as a way to stop disease before it has a chance to progress. Their preventive care services include:
- Regular exams (including diagnostic images like x-rays)
- Teeth cleanings
- Sealants, if advised
- Custom-made mouthguards for patients involved in sports
Your dentist will also give you tips on best practices for oral hygiene at home.
Restoring your mouth to health
If your dentist identifies a problem – such as tooth decay, disease, defect or trauma – they’ll recommend a restorative service to resolve the issue. Our restorative care services include:
- The removal of tooth decay and filling the cavity
- Root canals
- Dental bridges and dental implants to replace missing teeth that could have a negative effect on your oral health
- Dental crowns to protect teeth that are cracked or excessively decayed, and to replace missing teeth
Many of our partners offer additional specialty services, such as oral surgery, orthodontics and dental anesthesiology.
Regular visits are important
Because General Dentistry focuses on preventing disease – not just treating it – you’ll probably see your dentist more consistently than any other health care provider! We can help you find a children’s dentist for a professional cleaning every six months to ensure a brighter smile – and a brighter future!
Healthy teeth. Healthy body.
Healthy teeth can help keep your body healthy. How? Good oral health can prevent a number of health problems, including diabetes, heart disease and other preventable issues. Together, we’ll make sure your mouth is in good health so your body will stay in good health!
What’s a routine visit like?
During a routine visit, your dentist will thoroughly exam your mouth, including your teeth, gums and other structures. You’ll discuss the health of your mouth and your overall health. In some cases, you’ll receive a professional teeth cleaning. And if the exam shows tooth decay, your dentist may fill the affected tooth, using local anesthesia to prevent pain.
We understand that a lot of people experience anxiety in dental appointments. And we believe that a thorough understanding of what’s going to happen can help ease that anxiety. We partner with dentists that are experienced in treating children of all ages, and practice compassionate, gentle dentistry. To make sure you have a pleasant experience, our partners practice a “Tell, Show, Do” technique to let you know exactly what to expect from your procedure. If you’re still feeling nervous, they can administer nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to help you relax.
At the end of each visit, a Kool Smiles Kids Club Partnering dental professional will give you a detailed description of the work that was done, with after-care instructions and prescriptions, if needed. Feel free to ask questions! They are happy to help.
As always, Medicaid is happily accepted
Our partners are proud to accept Medicaid, private and commercial insurance. If you don’t have insurance, ask about their family discount dental plans starting at $89 a month.
