About the Company
Kool Smiles is general dentistry that focuses on children’s dental care. With over 120 dentist offices throughout the United States, Kool Smiles makes dental care available to millions of children, including those living in underserved communities. Below, you can read our company profile and learn about our organization.
Kool Smiles uses the American Dental Association (ADA) and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) guidelines for the dental treatment of children. Some of the United States’ most respected dentists lead our clinical team at Kool Smiles, and we are proud to provide dental care to millions of children who would not otherwise have access to quality care. A recent study by an independent firm, Dobson DaVanzo, showed Kool Smiles dentists perform 15% fewer treatments per patient on average at a 33% lower cost than comparable providers.
We Accept Medicaid and Tricare
With an estimated 80% of U.S. dentists refusing to accept Medicaid or limiting the number of Medicaid patients they’ll see, there is a major gap in the number of children who need dental care and the number of children who have access to it. At Kool Smiles, we bridge that gap by accepting Medicaid, SCHIP, and Tricare at every location and never limiting the number of Medicaid or Tricare patients we will see in one day.
We are Patient-Focused
Founded in 2002, Kool Smiles’ biggest goal has always been to deliver top-notch care to our patients. In fact, our dentists spend can spend almost all of their time on patient care, compared to an industry average of 90%. Our dentists also:
- Begin every appointment with a parent consultation that explains what their child’s visit will entail and the treatment options available
- Encourage parents to join their children in the treatment area to help young patients relax
- Spend as much time with each patient as the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry reports for independent pediatric providers
By focusing on providing quality care to every patient, we have been able to maintain a patient retention rate of 80%, and 97% of our patients indicate they would recommend Kool Smiles to friends and family. We’ve also reduced the number of restorative procedures needed by our patients and improved the overall dental health of the communities we serve. Whether your child’s smile needs a routine cleaning, X-rays or fillings, a Kool Smiles dentist will make sure your child gets the care he or she needs.
