Hundreds of Uninsured Kids Treated During Kool Smiles "Sharing Smiles" Free Care Day; Kool Smiles Dentists Elevate Awareness of "Dental Divide" in America

More than 450 children across the country without dental insurance received much needed dental care at no cost during theKool Smiles"Sharing Smiles" free care day on Sunday, February 22, 2015.

Bone chilling temperatures and inclement weather in many of the 13 states where Kool Smiles offices offered free dental care didn't stop families from bringing in their children for a range of dental procedures.  Although the free care day provided an opportunity to address immediate dental needs, it also underscored the dental access challenges families face and the overall lack of coverage for dental care.

"Throughout the day, we were reminded that there are still children who are unable to consistently access dental health care and all the benefits that come with it," said Dr. Polly Boehnlein, DDS, MS, a board-certified pediatric dentist and Managing Dental Director for Kool Smiles.  "While Kool Smiles is proud to offer a full range of dental services to traditionally underserved populations - including patients covered under Medicaid or State Children's Health Insurance Plans (SCHIP) - there are still children for whom regular, affordable dental care is still sadly out of reach."
