Dental Dreams
Unlike the other reviews,which im assuming are from people who already had issues i had quite a pleasant experience with Dental dreams. I went in for a consultation for dentures. The staff made me feel very comfortable about my visit. As did the attending nurse and Dr Zhao. She checked everything made an assessment then let me know she felt it better to save some teeth and only do a partial denture. After a quick extraction i was given extra gauze for the area and given several choices as for follow ups. Clean and professional service without judgement. I would definately recommend this business to others along with the advice that online negative reviews does not make a terrible practice.Judge for yourself.

I had a appointment for a filing that would take about an hour. BUT i was at work and only had a 30 min break. I managed to convince one of the lovely assistants to help get as much as possible done with the time frame that I had. Ask and you shall receive I got one of my fillings done and the session ended just in time for me to make another appointment and get back to work before my idiot boss got another reason to yell at me.tl;dr They are willing to switch things up for you should you need it.They are wicked professional.Place is always clean.Staff is wicked friendly. Linda always has a nice tan and she is the bomb.com.5/5 would go again

I am pleased with the care and service I receive at Kool Smiles, New Bedford. DA Daniel, Desiree, and Dr. Kim are personable and professional. They always have a smile for you, and treat you with respect. I feel completely relaxed and confident that whatever procedure I am going to have will be painless and completed the right way. I am so thankful that I found this place and these people to keep my teeth healthy and my smile beautiful. My whole family goes here now, I have had many dentists in my life, but Kool Smiles and the great staff are by far the best I've ever had work on my teeth.

My first visit to Kool Smiles was easy and painless, literally. Meghan, Desiree and Dr. Kim did a great job in helping me with my broken filling. Going to the dentist is not the most relaxing of activities for me, but Meghan and Desiree made the environment and experience very comfortable. Dr. Kim kept checking in with me throughout the whole procedure and was very pleasant. I will keep Kool Smiles New Bedford as my dentist office of choice :)

I went into the office the day before Thanksgiving. The front desk staff was extremely friendly especially Lindsey. I was never a fan of the dentist growing up but everyone at Kool Smiles is so professional and friendly they make you feel very comfortable. The hygienist Wendy and Dr.Kim were amazing and I left the office very satisfied. I would recommend this office to anyone who needs good dental care.

My son came into the office for a cleaning. After his cleaning we were told he needed a filling and they could do it that day. He was very nervous but the staff was great. Linda explained everything in detail and made us feel very comfortable. And it was a plus to not have to come back a 2nd time for the filling. I will absolutely be coming back to Kool Smiles.

I came into the New Bedford office for a cleaning after not going to the dentist for a few years. The front desk was very friendly. Meghan and Wen-dee were caring. Meghan was fast and efficient while she was doing my xrays and Wen-dee gave me a great cleaning. She was very gentle but thorough. I will definitely be returning for my next cleaning.
Tips & Advices
  • Pick Your Plan: Most people purchase three main varieties, usually through their employers.
    • An indemnity or fee-for-service plan means you'll have to pay for annual deductibles and co-insurance payments out of pocket.
    • A preferred provider organization is less costly, and you choose from a network of dentists. However, PPOs have some limitations and accompanying deductibles.
    • A dental health maintenance organization plan limits you to just a few choices of dentists, and one doctor handles all of your oral care needs. However, these HMO are usually much less costly.
  • PPO plans and dental HMOs work with only a select number of doctors. While that usually means fewer costs, it also means you have less choice in the dentist who can treat you Before purchasing the plan, you'll receive a list of dentists in each network. From there, you can then pick a plan with doctors who meet your standards and requirements.
  • When picking a plan, you need to look at just how much you'll pay for each and every service. For instance, some plans won't cover your fillings or X-rays, while others may charge more or less for a crown or tooth extraction. You don't want to be caught off-guard by unforeseen charges.
  • If you're truly comfortable with a dentist and you feel he or she can be an ally in your ongoing oral care regimen, then consider signing a plan to just keep that dentist available. That means potentially deal with costs and other insurance-related factors that you might have wanted to. If need be, you might be able to work with the dentist's office to address some of the plan-specific concerns.
  • Ask family, friends or colleagues for recommendations. They will be able to provide details about a dentist's demeanor, operating style and approach to patient care
  • Meet with any prospective dentists to ask about what treatments they perform most often, procedures they're not as familiar with, what accreditation they have or any organizations they belong to and how their offices handles insurance and payments.
  • Consider driving distance, location and office hours.
  • Check With Your State Board: The state board can outline what requirements your dentist must meet and offer information about any discrepancies in the their background and if he or she has faced any disciplinary actions.
  • Remember Your Angles - When brushing your teeth, always place the brush at a 45-degree angle..
  • Don't Forget the Tongue – Your tongue is the largest source of bacteria. Brush it front to back and don't forget the sides.
  • Floss Everyday - Each time you floss, have at least 18 inches of floss available. For optimal control, hold the floss between your thumbs and forefingers.
  • Watch What You Eat - Sugar, alcohol and coffee contain phosphorus. While some can prove beneficial, too much of this chemical can eat away at your teeth and gums.
  • Keep in Mind the Mouthwash - Mouthwash can be helpful if used to supplement proper brushing and flossing. Most mouthwash brands contain chlorine dioxide, a chemical that targets the majority of oral bacterial strains.
Yellow teeth are the result of a number of bad habits, mainly smoking, drinking too much coffee and improper nutrition. Many dentists will treat with a whitening procedure.
These painful bumps are the result of irritation to the soft tissue of your mouth. These sores can make brushing almost impossible. There are a number of different causes for sores, including anemia or a vitamin B-12 deficiency. Your doctor will have to examine the bump, find its cause and then develop a specific treatment plan, including the use of corticosteroids to reduce inflammation or antimicrobial mouthwash.
