Kelly did an amazing job with my 2 year old , it was his very first visit to a dentist and it was not pretty by any means , ( long story short my son had multiple ear infections when he was younger like two a month for 7 months and from that he developed a fear of doctors of any kind so doctors visits are always difficult) she didn't miss a beat she knew exactly how to handle him and was so very gentle and caring in a VERY difficult situation. Dr. Nightengale encountered the same issue when it was her time to check kolten over and again she was amazing as well , she didn't waster any time got in looked cleaned and was done before my child really could throw his fit. Overall BEST dentist & doctor experience i have had thus far with my son. Brittane G.

Excellent customer service. The dentist and his assistant Margarita went above and beyond when it came to my 7 year old. He had a bad dental experience prior and they did everything to make.sure he was ok. They talked to him threw the while procedure. They made sure that he wasn't in any pain. I have 4 kids that go here. Everytime I come I. The staff goes above.and beyond to make sure we're seen in a timely matter. They get us in and out. They treat the kids as if there, there own. Thank you for everything. From teeth cleaning to braces. Everyone has been a joy to be around.

So my appointment was at 4pm(the last appointment of the day), it was possible I could have been late so I called to inform the clinic. I was told that I could only be 5 mins late. I arrived at the clinic within 5 mins of my appointment but I wasn't seen until almost 5pm. I don't understand why there is such a strict late-show policy if patients aren't seen until almost an hour past their appointment time. If the patients are to be flixible and wait then the clinic should be more flexible.

My children have been seen at kool smiles several times both in the virginia beach location and the portsmouth location and have always felt my children were in good hands. Yesterday my daughter was seen in the portsmouth lactation for an orthodontic appt. As always I was impressed by the orthodontic team. Everybody was very professional and friendly. The office was very clean and would definitely recommend kool smiles to a friend.

Had a great experience with the GA crew at Kool smile. Dr Gushed and Dr del Cuadro were great my 3 girls needed a lot of work done. They had to all be put to sleep for the procedures. They were very professional, prompt and thoroughly explained what to expect from the procedures. I definitely recommend Kool Smiles to anyone who wants great, and friendly service all the way through.

Above all the play area/waiting area is really nice for the children. My only complaint is that an intercom is needed to hear when a patient is called, between the television and the children playing if it wasn't for the other parents I wouldn't have heard my child's name called. Overall a very pleasant first visit for my 17 month old.

I had a great time here with my son the staff was friendly and put my sons fears at ease. The cleaning was quick and cavities woohoo!!! The play area was a hit as well. Will take him back soon. I think I was more scared than my son lol. He even got a toy at the end. Very cool. We didn't even wait too long

They were excellent. My daughter's tooth was chipped from a fall about 3 months ago. I advised the Dr and he smoothed it out so that you couldn't even tell it was there. I was very pleased with the professionalism, expertise, & the length of the visit. I would definitely recommend this facility to other children.

This visit was better than the last. Still they have a long way to go. Ms Laverne is rude. She rarely smiles. Customer service here stinks. The hygienists are awesome so far, you got to get past the fro t to get to the back. Im looking for another practice. Any suggestions?

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.
