Read on to learn more about our dental services and why Kool Smiles is a quality network for your dental care.
For many families, it’s difficult finding a dentist that fits their needs as well as their budget. Unfortunately, great dental care is often made inaccessible by high prices and distant locations. At Kool Smiles, we’re proud to help make great dental health an accessible and convenient option for every family, no matter their location and financial circumstances.
Here are some of the many benefits of choosing Kool Smiles for your child’s oral care:
Ninety-seven percent of patients surveyed say they would recommend Kool Smiles to friends and family. We offer a wide range of dental health services, including cleanings and exams, fillings, permanent crowns, root canals and bridges for both children and/or adults.
Oral health is critical for your child’s growth and development. More than 42% of kids ages 8–12 have tooth decay, making it the most common disease for children. Poor dental health in children can cause a variety of issues, from pain to difficulty learning and speaking to poor self-esteem.
Even tooth trouble during early stages of development can lead to a lifetime of painful dental conditions. This is why consistent and preventative dental care is so important—and why children should visit the dentist every six months.
Some other reasons why your children should visit the dentist for dental care, according to the Center for Pediatric Dentistry, are:
Although dentists themselves don’t treat misalignment or crooked teeth, they can pay attention to your child’s teeth, track how they’re changing and suggest when it’s best to visit an orthodontist for further care. Oral health is a crucial part of a child’s healthcare, which is why it’s important to take your child to a general or pediatric dentist every six months once they turn a year old.
The most affordable solution to many dental problems is proper at-home dental care. While tooth decay is common among children, there are ways to prevent or stop it. Through proper hygiene at home and regular trips to the dentist, children can have healthy teeth.
Even so, taking the right steps to care for your teeth and gums at home might not be enough to completely prevent dental issues from arising. This is why screenings and cleanings are a must to maintain good oral health.
Fortunately, that still doesn’t mean you have to break the bank to keep your child safe and healthy. At Kool Smiles, we believe all children deserve high-quality dental care at a price parents can afford.
You and your family can get access to quality care at Kool Smiles, thanks to the variety of dental plans we accept. We offer numerous payment options and accept almost all forms of dental insurance. For those who do not have commercial insurance, we also accept the following forms of payment:
Delta Dental is the largest dental plan in the U.S., which offers various benefit plans for both individual and family plans. They also offer a Veterans Affairs Dental Insurance Program for those who qualify. You may receive dual coverage for dental services. Their customer service representatives are available nationwide to answer any questions regarding their plans, their payment procedures, and their claims.
CareCredit is a healthcare credit card used on preventative care, treatments and procedures. With this card, you can pay for a variety of medical care (including visits to your primary care or to the urgent care). You can also use the card to pay for dental checkups, as well as teeth cleanings, ceramic fillings, fluoride treatments, gingivitis treatments, braces, root canals, tooth repair and veneers, etc.
Not sure what’s covered by your insurance company? Call your insurance company to find out. If you get stuck paying out-of-pocket expenses, we can help you figure out the next best payment plan for your family.
Going to the dentist is important, but treating your children at home is important too. If you want to keep your child’s oral health in order, you should take the right steps to care for their teeth and gums. Here’s what you can do to at home to maintain proper oral care:
Seeing a dentist every six months is crucial when children are growing because the dentist can pay special attention to any changes or medical concerns and give the child preventative treatment, if needed.
