You guys when I tell you that Ms. Britney is a miracle worker!! When my daughter and I was first brought back to the procedure room my daughter was upset and wouldn't stop crying, Ms Britney sat her down and explained to her that she wouldn't hurt her , she told her she had sugar bugs on her tooth and that they was going to use a special toothbrush to get them off, but ofcourse my daughter was still scared, so next she gave her coloring sheets and began coloring with her asking her what grade she was in , what's her favorite color etc, basically making my daughter feel comfortable, next thing I know my daughter was laying back doing her fillings she explained to her every step of the way, she has a very imaginative mind lol, but it worked, now my daughter can't wait to come back and see Dr.Elfert and ms Britney .

Theriot Family Dental Care
Dr Theriot 's Family Dental Care is the best dental facility in town. The staff is always on top of things by making sure you know the date and time of your appointment. They are open early on certain days of the week so patients can go before work. The dental hygienist always cleans my teeth until they are sparkly white. She also makes sure I leave with a goodie bag filled with toothpaste and toothbrushes. The chairs massage you while you are cleaning your teeth and you have the option to watch TV as well. Dr Theriot is so friendly and takes time to explain to the patient exactly what is being done. I wouldn’t recommend him unless he is the best. Oh and don’t forget they have complimentary water bottles on the way out. Huge plus for me.

When I came into the facility today it was very clean; I was greeted with a smile by Ms. Brandi; she was very nice and helpful with the questions I had in reference to the paperwork. Ms. Keisha was also helpful when I had some insurance questions. Krystal Joseph is the most knowledgeable dental assistant I have every had. She was very helpful and concerned about my son's welfare. Everyone was so nice! I would recommend this office to EVERYONE!! :)

I really like all except one of The dentists and the techs however the wait time is outrageous. Sometimes you have to wait over an hour or even longer before your kids are called to the back. Also the waiting room is always over packed. If your child has a dental emergency forget getting an appointment anytime soon. We were told that we would wave to make an appointment that would be at least 2 1/2 months away.

I took my 4 kids ages 5-15. My little one was the first one finished with her cleaning and exrays and I didn't even notice because she did not cry or whine for mommy. This is very good for her. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. All of my questions were answered and my next appointments was scheduled for my convenience. My kids love going to the dentist because of Kool Smiles dentistry.

I had my 5yo son who had never been seen here before. Called they got me in same day, staff was great, dentist was overly comforting to my son. From walking in to working with Brandi all the way till scheduling appointments for all three kids; accommodating me at the end with Kiesha. I am very blessed we found our new forever Dentist for my babies.

Very poor customer service! After driving an hour for my son's appointment, we were informed the doctor could not administer gas. Instead of making arrangements for my son to have his work done by another dentist, they rescheduled. Very inconvenient for us and very inconsiderate of them.

Very attentive, friendly and caring office staff ! My son was nervous to have his dental work done and they made sure that he felt comfortable before they took him to the back for his work. Kool Smiles made life easier for us on that day and I really appreciate it! Thank you !
Tips & Advices
This depends on the prosthetic.
  • Dental implants, when cared for properly, can last a lifetime.
  • Crowns typically last between 10-15 years.
  • Resin-bonded bridges typically last between seven  and 10 years. Tooth-supported fixed bridges generally wear out faster than this.
  • Removable partial dentures typically last around 15 years.
  • Complete dentures typically last between five and six years.
The entire process for adding dental implants could take as long as eight months. There are three phases:
  • Phase 1: Grafting. This may take between three and six  months.
  • Phase 2: Artificial root placement. This may take one to two  hours to complete and will take between three and six  months to heal.
  • Phase 3: Crown placement. This is usually done over the course of two visits, two weeks apart.
One dental implant typically costs $1,000-$3,000. However, the abutment (a connector added onto the top of a dental implant) and crown can add $500-$3,000. Multiple dental implants may cost $3,000-$30,000. A full set of implant dentures may cost as much as $90,000, though the average is around $34,000.
A dental implant is a titanium post shaped like a natural tooth's root that is surgically inserted into the jawbone beneath the gums. These posts allow dentists to secure a replacement tooth or bridge in the correct position.
Maxillofacial prosthesis is a subspecialty of prosthodontics. A maxillofacial prosthesis is meant to rehabilitate patients who have defects or disabilities due to trauma, disease, or those that a patient is has from birth. The prosthesis is designed to replace parts of the bone or tissue that are missing, or to help restore functions of the mouth, such as swallowing, chewing, or speaking. Other prostheses are created to protect the face during radiation therapy. Dentists that work with maxillofacial prostheses often collaborate closely with ear, nose, and throat doctors.
