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
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.
