About the Company

Benevis

Kool Smiles, founded in 2002, is built on the belief that all families have the right to receive quality dental care. Our goal at Kool Smiles is to provide first-rate dental services to communities that are often overlooked or are otherwise underserved. We welcome the entire family, from children as young as 1 year old, and also treat adults in most of our offices.

The Surgeon General has reported that dental care is the number-one unmet healthcare need for children in the United States. Kool Smiles was founded in response to that unmet need, to provide access to quality dental care in communities throughout the country. Here are the facts on why good dental care is vital to lifelong health:
