This was my daughters second dentist visit. She is 4 years old. Her 1st was at a small family practice, and didn't go well. So she was very nervous walking into kool smiles. I was so happy with our whole experience, the took the drama out of taking a trip to the dentist. The staff, both front desk and the Dr's and assistants, were wonderful. They were very welcoming, friendly, and wonderful with my little one. The office itself was colorful and warm, perfect place for kids. I loved how it was an open exam room, so all the exams took place together. And being able to play in the playroom before our visit definitely helped to relax her right away. We have already booked her next appt, and she can't wait to go back. Thanks so much for being awesome!

I had two fillings done today, and I didn't feel any pain. I've had a bad experience in the past with dentist but today was different. Dr. Rue and her dental assistants Limaries and Pauline were very kind and patient. Constantly reassuring and comforting me during the process. Kool Smiles has my stamp of approval with my family. Now if only they could have weekend and extended hours for adult patients that wok 9-5 that would be awesome. Great people, great customer service, and a friendly atmosphere. The receptionist are also very helpful and always have a smile on their face. I definitely recommend Kool Smiles in Springfield MA on St. James Avenue in the Big Y plaza.

Took my daughter here for the 1st time on February 19th, 2016. We are new to the area & my neighbors recommended here. They have a big play area for the kids to play in while waiting to be called. The Staff were all nice to Me & my (7yo) daughter, made her feel comfortable, explained everything to her before touching her mouth & gave her a cool bag of dental goodies & stickers to take home. She smiled at me when we were done & told me she really liked her new dentist. We will be going back again. So glad I found this place. Thank you Kool Smiles.

The dental experience at Kool Smiles was great. The appointment was for my 6 year old son. I appreciated how Kasssna explained the procedure and how comfortable my son felt ,during and after. The time frame was for an hour and I'm glad things went well and it went smoothly. Dr. Rue was also great in putting my son at ease during the procedure. I would recommend Kool Smiles. The atmosphere and the staff make you feel comfortable. They do get busy but all in all the experience is great. Kool Smiles is great for kids and adults.

Kool Smiles has something much better then any of its other competitors, and that's a friendly and dedicated staff. My daughter has an absolute fear of the dentist. She has had major dental surgery at the age of 4 and now as an 7 year old there is no convincing her that a visit to the dentist won't be painful... that is before comming to Kool Smiles. Their Receptionist Cressada went over and beyond her job duties to make my daughter feel comfortable and want to actually come back to the dentist. I am truly great full

ExpertiseFacilityProfessionalismmy son is very high strung and on blood pressure meds at 8 years old for bipolar, adhd, anxiety, and manic episodes. he panics fast and hard. Rossanna had a smile ready for him, talked him through everything and was absolutely amazing at distracting him from his panic, getting him to breathe, smile and make silly faces back at her. I couldn't ask for anyone to do anymore any better. Thank you so so much!!!!

The hygienist and staff were great! But the doctor didn't bother to read my sons chart and admitted to it and he has mental health issues! She was not very kind to him and put the Novocain in really fast! That hurts! Now he's scared to go back and he has never been afraid of the dentist before! She was nicer after I told her to look at his chart. Very unprofessional!
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.
