While two-thirds of dentists don’t accept Medicaid, you can count on the dentists at Kool Smiles to take this form of insurance. At Kool Smiles, we strategically place our office locations in underserved areas where our dentists can provide quality oral healthcare. Our goal is to provide dental services for every child, especially those that come from low-income families. These children are twice as likely to develop untreated tooth decay, which can wreak havoc if not addressed properly by a professional dental provider.
Kool Smiles is a network of family-friendly dentists that makes finding affordable dental care easy for patients without insurance. We welcome Medicaid patients at each of our locations throughout the United States. You can call us at 254-781-0553 to make an appointment with a dentist that accepts Medicaid at a Kool Smiles location near you.
Dentists that accept Medicaid can provide different dental care options depending on where they are located. Although Medicaid is a government funded program, benefits can be slightly different for each state, which affects the dental services that your child can receive without pay. However, using Medicaid at the dentist is easy when you come to Kool Smiles. All children under the age of 21 can receive services from our dental providers, with their Medicaid plan, which includes early and periodic screening, diagnosis and treatment services (EPSDT).
At Kool Smiles, our dentists can help patients with any medically necessary treatments, which are typically covered by Medicaid. Other dental services that Medicaid patients can receive include:
From toddlers to teenagers, it’s important for children of all ages to visit the dentist. The American Dental Association suggests that children should have their first dental visit when their first baby tooth appears—usually by the time your child turns one. Bringing your kid to the dentist twice a year will help improve their oral health by:
Whether your child is in need of emergency dental treatment, an orthodontist or just a general dentist for primary care, you can bring him or her to Kool Smiles where you can work with dentists that accept Medicaid and many other health care insurances. Call 254-781-0553 for an appointment.
You can find a Kool Smiles dentist near you that accepts Medicaid under no restrictions. Here is some important information regarding Medicaid and Kool Smiles.
Not only do our dentists accept Medicaid and several other insurances, but Kool Smiles works to simplify dental care for kids across the country. We do this by:
When you consult with one of our dental staff members, they can help determine exactly what is and isn’t covered by your Medicaid insurance. If you are looking for services that are not included in your coverage plan, we can also work out a payment plan that fits your budget. Our dentists are proud to accept Medicaid, TRICARE, state children’s health insurance programs (SCHIP) and other forms of insurance to provide your child with the best possible dental care at the most affordable price.
Kool Smiles provides quality dental care at all of our locations, as well as offers orthodontic, endodontic and pediatric services at select offices. When you visit one of our locations, you can expect to be greeted by our helpful professionals, and we’ll work with you regardless of whether or not you have insurance to develop manageable payment options.
When you and your child come to Kool Smiles, you’ll get more than just a dental cleaning and checkup. We teach our patients good oral hygiene habits that parents can instill at home, including:
Additionally, we want to be able to communicate with all of our patients and their families. That’s why many Kool Smiles facilities employ bilingual dentists and customer representatives to provide free translation services to our patients and their families. Most Kool Smiles locations will even treat adults with a full range of dental services.
Tooth decay is the most common disease among children, and our mission is to provide families in communities that are often overlooked with quality dental care. Young teeth need more attention in order to develop healthy habits and a healthy smile, and our dental providers are here to make sure that your child receives any treatments that he or she may need.
