Dental care is just as important for children as it is for adults. But as it turns out, many families who don’t have private dental insurance can’t to take their kids to the dentist.
At Kool Smiles, we make visiting the dentist affordable, even if you don’t have dental coverage.
Children should make their first visit to the dentist as soon as their first tooth comes in. However, many kids never go due to a lack of private dental insurance.
Just over 60% of Americans have dental coverage. Those with dental benefits are more likely to go to the dentist and take their children, too. Thanks to Kool Smiles, your children will always have access to affordable, quality care—even if you don’t have insurance.
Kool Smiles accepts most private dental insurance plans. We are also one of the few dental providers that accepts Medicaid, TRICARE, and SCHIP at every location. This makes getting access to quality treatment and care much easier.
For those without insurance, Kool Smiles gladly takes payment by cash and credit card. CareCredit is also available to help you make monthly payments for treatment.
At Kool Smiles, we want children to be as comfortable as possible visiting the dentist. Our offices are designed just for kids. There are bright colors, open spaces, and toys for kids to enjoy while they wait. Many locations even feature playgrounds.
Our doctors are experienced treating children. They are gentle and make dental work fun and enjoyable. They put young patients at ease by explaining each procedure step-by-step. Parents are invited to join their kids in the treatment area, too.
At Kool Smiles, our mission is to provide quality, affordable dental care for children. With more than 120 Kool Smiles locations across the United States, chances are there is an office near you.
Your child deserves a great dentist even if you don’t have private dental insurance. Call us today or find a Kool Smiles location near you to set up an appointment.
