I have been taking my daughter to Kool Smiles for 4 years now and I always had a great experience. I love the care they give to my child. I recently had 2 visits with them and I had to come tell my experience.I hate the dentist. I take good care of my teeth but go every 4-5 years smh. I made a visit with them because I had been having pain & a lot of health problems with my wisdom teeth. My first visit I met Leandra & Dr.Gupta. They were absolutely fantastic. Leandra made me so comfortable the whole visit I was able to stay calm. She also helped me to understand the procedure I was about to have, which was 2 surgical extractions the same day. Dr.Gupta was very nice, noticed problem immediately and made sure I was helped the same day. Later that day I went to the Hampton office where I got the extraction done. Dr.Newter I believe was great. He made sure I was comfortable enough for the procedure and was quick. The nurse was amazing I can't remember her name but she was great help in every way. Today, a week later I had a visit back at the Newport News office to check on my mouth because a was afraid I had dry socket. Dr.Gupta again was awesome. She checked the area made sure I was ok and also clean it. She really showed me she cared. Diamond her assistant was a doll. She definitely helped my nerves stay calm and let me know everything was fine and was so positive. My personal experience has been overall all amazing with Koolsmiles and I already feel 10x better having them wisdom teeth out. THANK YOU!!

My son Ajani has had many traumatic experiences at the dentist. He has had to be sedated in the past so going to the dentist was like a crisis for us. But today we were blessed to have Dr.O'Neal and Ms. Vonnie at Kool Smiles in Newport News VA to help and comfort us in overcoming Ajani's fear of having his dental work done. He had 2 extractions and a filling done. He did GREAT, Praise the Lord! Before the procedure he didn't want to come through the doors. He was lagging behind and the dentist thought my other son Tony was the one getting work done. So after many hugs and kisses in the chair, Ajani was finally ready ! Whew.......Dr. O'Neal and Ms. made him feel so comfortable that he didn't even know he was numbed the needle. Their along with the laughing gas was SO AWESOME! I thank God for people who love doing what they do to make this a Calm, Peaceful, and HAPPY EXPERIENCE FOR US!

I was greeted immediately by one of the patient coordinators when I walked in who quickly got me checked in, where after I was shortly takenback by the dental assistant Leandra, who was personable and friendly while she got my information and x-rays very quickly but effectively, making sure I didn't hurt my already sore teeth, and then was Dr.Rastogi who was very efficient and incredibly kind. I was checked out by patient coordinator Vonnie less than hour after I checked in. Overall, everyone made sure I was well taken care of and comfortable and even the people who weren't assisting me specifically still made sure to smile at me and greet me. Thanks Kool Smiles!

Dr.Chung and his staff are great. I dont know what this other person had going on but I too am an African American female and I have never been disrespected by ANYONE here. They actually allowed me to pay for half of my crown at one visit and pay the balance at the completion. They give you advice about caring for your teeth. I wouldnt go anyplace else to have dentistry work done. As a matter of fact, I chipped a tooth last night and I am calling as soon as I get done with this review to try and get it fixed.

My daughter is 7, her previous dental experience was awful. He grabbed her face, yelled at her and told her to stop crying. Needless to say, she feared the dentist after that. I took her to Kool Smiles yesterday, the staff knowing what she experienced before did whatever they could to make this dental visit incredible. She didn't cry, she wasn't upset, no tears. This staff is incredible, as a parent they eases my fears. I look forward to working with them in the future

My visit was going bad because I was waiting for a long time but my dental assistant Jasmine turned that around right away when Jasmine genuinely apologized. While waiting on the dentist she talked to me about how important my education is and how I should not give up on school. It felt really good for someone to actually care. My procedure did not take too long and the Dr. was very kind and professional. This is the best Kool Smiles office!

I have been taking my kids to this location for a couple years now and I love they way they are treated. My 13 year old got braces and need to have a tooth removed due to lack of space. This was the very first time she has needed anything that involved needles. Dr. Rastogi and Leandra did a great job. My daughter had no tears or even uncomfortable the whole time. Dr Smith and his staff are always great great with her well.

The last Kool smiles I went to in Kentucky was horrible...but from the front desk staff to the staff in the back, they were all truly passionate and very great people here in the Newport News location! They eased my 6 year olds fears and he actually can't wait to come back! (Shocking lol) I would give them more then 5 stars! :)

Greeted with a smile and customer service as soon as walked. Keria and Vonnie were very helpful as well as informative. Both of my kids were in and out and under an hour. This was my first time coming to this Kool Smiles location and I must say I wash very impressed compared to others I have been to. And I actually think my kids are looking forward to coming back to the dentist which is a first.
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.
