Dr. John Guilett is the most compassionate, skilled, understanding, and comforting dentist in the entire region. I, unfortunately, had to visit SEVERAL dental clinics before hitting the jackpot at PineBeltDentel. Dr. Guillet is the most sensitive, sincere, and miraculously-talented Doctor of Dental Science. Even the office staff and dental hygienists [at Pine Belt Dental] are unlike any other; you'll always leave smiling bright--feeling [emotionally] important, respected, and special.Dr. John G. and his hygienists are incredibly knowledgeable, yet most importantly, impeccable listenerns. Unlike several other greedy [cosmetic] dentists who [secretly] use cheap, outsourced, porcelain veneers/crowns, Dr. Guillet uses genuine, TOP-QUALITY materials for both "general" and "cosmetic" procedures.His [personal] hygienist was the FIRST dental assistant who genuinely took the time to collectively listen, document, and objectively analyze my personality, lifestyle demands, and cosmetic needs, all in efforts to ensure that my "desired outcome" would soon be SUPERSEDED.

[FYi, I'm the pickiest, most-opinionated, dental patient who typically demands "unrealistic" outcomes.] After blowing several thousands of dollars at other clinics where my procedures were rushed, performed half-a**, and yielded unsatisfactory results, my experience at Pine Belt Dental was completely different, and, literally, was nothing less than FABULOUS!!!Everyone should be lucky enough to be a patient of Dr. John Guillet, DDS located in Hattiesburg, MS **BEHIND** Turtle Creek Mall and directly "ACROSS" from Dickey's BBQ Pit.

Kool Smiles is a great place to take your kids for their dental. Kids loved it. The dental assts. and doctors are very professional and work well with the kids to be comfortable. Only issues, the significant paperwork that takes about 10-15 mins(2 children) to fill out before even being cked in to see dentist. If paperwork could be emailed or send via mail, that would help with overall visit and wait time to ensure your child is seen in an orderly fashion and timely manner. Paperwork should be narrowed down to smaller pkt (in office) due to time consuming and wait time being longer than an hr after time of arrival. The office manager is very attentive to any complaints or concerns that you may have and addresses any issues and that is a plus for me. Front end needs a lil more training in handling high volume situations so things not be so backed up and look unprofessional. Overall, once called to back everyone was Awsome and professional! Very organized! My kids loved their experience

How do I start! My boys have been coming to Koolsmiles in Hattiesburg since they were little. Each of my boys have a certain Dentist and assistant that they love to see when they come for cleanining or treatment. My oldest prefers Dr. Roark or Dr Moore and Assistants Mrs Temesha, Mrs Andrea, Ms Desha and Mrs Erica, Middle son loves Dr Roark or Dr Sutton Assistants Mrs Temesha and Ms Desha , and my youngest son loves Dr Pursley. When they come for a cleaning they all want Ms Laneka and Mrs Dedra and assistant Ms Terri and Ms Kaylor. All of these people plus the ladies at the front desk have made coming to the dentist a enjoyable time. Thank you koolsmiles for making my boys smiles beautiful.

I brought my children to Kool Smiles for a cleaning on May 3,2016 and they loved it. I have been bringing them for about four years now. Everytime I come my experience is great. The hygienist Laneka was very nice to my children. Even though they were asking a lot of questions she answered every question with a smile and never got frustrated. Once the doctor came (Dr. Roark) she had the biggest smile on her face. She explained to them the importance of taking care of their teeth and once we left my daughter told me she wants to become a dentist when she grows up. I don't think this experience gets any better.

My daughter and I had an appointment yesterday for her at koolsmiles in Hattiesburg. As a mother I was really apprehensive about this appointment because it was for fillings and not just a simple cleaning which my daughter does great with. Prior to coming my daughter whose 4 and I talked about what would happen but no really detailed information. Just wanted to let her know what to expect this time. Well to my surprise she did absolutely wonderful but it was truly due to the great Dr. Roark and her assistant Jessica. They did such an outstanding job to make sure my daughter was at ease the entire time.

Oral surgeon, Dr.Maharrey, an assistant, Ms.Andrea, went above n beyond my expectations. They explained everything in a very simple clear manner. They were both very, very courteous as well as professional. They made sure I was comfortably set and completely numb before they even began the procedure of double teeth extraction. Honestly I found myself my New Dentist office an highly recommend Koop Smiles to anyone who needs a precise, comfortable, an professional dental experience...thanks Kool Smiles...and thanks to Dr.Maharrey an Miss Andrea! I can finally behin to eat comfortably again! God Bless!

I love the friendly staff and the way dentists take the time to answer any questions/explain any treatment that may be required for my children. The staff doesn't have a problem doing whatever it takes to make the children and even the adults comfortable. Tamesha even went so far as holding my daughter's hand and singing with me to calm her down. My girls are older but the staff made them feel like they were just as important as the younger kids. No matter when we go now the girls are looking for Tamesha. That says a lot of the way they go above and beyond to make each patient feel special.

My boys love coming to Koolsmiles. Last week Dr. Tara Pursley was the dentist that seen them for there treatment. What i love but her is that she is not going to do anything that is unnecessary. Micah needed a baby tooth pulled. Dr. TP told him that he could wiggle it out by himself it was just hanging there. Before we got back home Micah pulled that tooth just like she said and really wanted me to go back to Koolsmiles and show her. Thanks to the staff that was working that morning was in and out.

The entire staff at Kool Smiles were kind, courteous, professional individuals that earned their 5 star rating across the board. Everything was explained to me so that I understood every option available to me in my specific case. I recommend Kool Smiles to anyone in need of any kind of dental care. The two young ladies that handled my case with such care and special attention were my doctor, Dr. Sutton & dental assistant, China. Thank y'all so much. I really can't thank y'all enough.

We love the hygiene part of that office. My children don't even care about the play area they just can't wait to get their teeth cleaned by Ms Deidra. The dental assistants Chrissie and Terrie are wonderful with getting them all to take X-rays. They make a great team in hygiene. Keep them around bosses bc without them yall would be nothing. They keep it fun, entertaining and professional all at the same time. I wouldn't take my children anywhere else but to Kool Smiles ��������
Tips & Advices
The most common dental problems in children are:
  • Cavities
  • Bad breath
  • Gum disease
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Grinding
  • Canker sores
  • Missing teeth
  • Extra teeth
  • Bite and alignment issues
Thumb sucking is not specifically a dental problem, but it can cause a malocclusion, a condition where the top and bottom teeth don't line up correctly.
To clean a baby's teeth, use a small, soft-bristled toothbrush designed specifically for infants. Apply a tiny amount of non-fluoride toothpaste - about the size of a grain of rice - and gently brush all sides of the teeth and the tongue. Before the baby's first teeth emerge, use gauze or a wet washcloth wrapped around the finger to wipe the gums. This motion doesn't necessarily reduce bacteria, but it does help the infant to get used to the sensation of having his or her teeth cleaned.
Children should visit their pediatric dentist every six months. This recommended frequency does not change throughout a person's lifetime.
No, wisdom teeth do not need to be removed unless they cause pain, lead to dental issues, or are aligned incorrectly.
Yes, dental sealants prevent cavities by filling in deep grooves in the teeth. Without them, bacteria can collect in these areas and cause tooth decay, which can happen with children.
