it's the insurance provider my husband is a truck driver, contracted for the us postal service, he pays 7819.00 a year for insurance on him self and when he goes to the dr and pays his co-pay the next month we get a bill for the entire amount. and if he was to say to drop the insurance then he will loose his job and now it's hard to find a good job but i have found out this week that georgia doesnt care. fact my husband got hurt at home and was out on medical leave the company fired him without telling him. per dept of labor a company in ga can fire you for any thing. my husband has been there 7 years at age 52 and now has a new hire date. so it doesnt suprise me about the insurance in ga, hopefully he'll find a job for a company that cares, we have a 4 month, 6,8 and we pay cash for dr visits, and we dont get a discount.

Please , DO NOT.... Take the job at Kool Smiles. Everything bad about that place is true. Think about it..they are put in low income neighborhoods and most of the workers have families of their own to take care of,(they need their jobs) so do you really think anything is going to be done about the way things are ran in the clinics? WHY, Because thats the way they they are told to do things from the corporate office. I pray that if you take the job at Kool Smiles that you just try to sleep at night after the stuff you will see and knowing that you have been warned

R.U.Kidding? we are talking about Koolsmiles AKA
Kruelsmiles. What makes this crappy joint a great
place? Even the staff are on different teams.Man
someone told me to view this site and I can tell you that I have laughed all day long at the things that R stated.Fact is Koolsmiles has blown themselves when they went for the Gusto and got involved with those "sharky investors"That is when they started tearing up the whole company. Money is not everything.....Happiness is more. The company has really changed and I really can't see them recapping their long lost name in the communities in Georgia and some of the other states unless they change the name and stop lying to the community and staff. Good Luck Dr. T

I heard that they were possibly going to close it down slowly as well as Get your bags ready. Always remember that when things happen like this it is for a better reason. When we get our new leader in the Whitehouse.......There are going to be alot of good changes.

I hope I'm not too late to reply to you about this horrific organization. If there is a opportunity for you to go elsewhere go with skates on "like really fast" there are persons still there whom they use to make things seem alright but truth being told the place is a plantation and all are slaves there.Just U wait when we have our new Leader in the Whitehouse the plantaion will be broken up. There is nothing apeasing about K/S.......... They attack anyone whom speaks out in dissagreement with them and then try to have them removed for no reason.Whatever you do don't let them know all that you know and keep copies and pictures of everything that is bad from my personal experince it is worth having in case they try something. In other words i am just waiting for something in the news to come about them I am going to blow a whistle louder than the mountain top.

I hope this is checked frequently....My first thought of Kool Smiles was WOW, this company is doing something amazing... HOWEVER, and EVERYONE listen, Kool Smiles is corporate america....
They do NOT care about their patients, and that is not to say that some doctors do not, but all around as a company, they care only about making $$$.... The do not respect their employees, who all are over worked and underpaid... I myself, have worked for KS and I do have to say, I LOVED my job, I worked hard because I believed in what I was doing, however at the end of the day, KS is corporate america!!!! THE ONE AND ONLY THING THAT MATTERS IS HOW MUCH MONEY YOUR OFFICE MAKES... AND IT'S ACTUALLY EVEN WORSE THAN THAT... I wish I had someone to talk to about this!!! And Obama Follower, I am so with you.... I can not WAIT until their time comes, I will be right there with you... I was actually removed for speaking out, and for NO REASON... BUT I am talking to someone about it.... SO..

Did you get the OM position? What happened to the previous OM?

Okay, I've read most of these comments and this concerns, after leaving a dental corporation that was all about the "all mighty dollar" especially for the doctors, and didn't care about the employees. I have a telephone interview today with the Dir of Ops for the Tupelo, Mississippi Kool Smiles for an OM position, it would be an hour drive for me, so please tell me not to waste my time, if that's actually the case about how horrible this company treats its OM's and other employees. Somebody help me out here!

Thats just absurd. I took my three children to the Kool Smiles in gulfport. The doctor there was very good. He was kind to my boys and didn't lecture them or make them feel bad cause all have tooth issues. They liked him and all 3 finished their treatment and have no issues or pain since. We had no where else to go before they came here.

Don't think we have any of those offices here in Fl, but I know Kool Smiles is not affliated with Small smiles.
KS-cruel assembly line

Taunton, MA

I brought my kids to KS last year, and the first thing I noticed was that there were about 10 kids sitting in the "assembly line" of dental chairs, with a small window for parents to look through. My 3 year old was told to sit in one of those chairs, then left by himself for about 10 minutes, with a worried look on his face not knowing what was going on, and my 6 year old was taken out of my sight to another room for xrays. When it was over, I was told that they had 7 cavities between the two of them! They had been to a dentist six months before with no cavities, so I didn't believe them and went to a different dentist for a second opinion-sure enough, the 6 year old had ONE cavity, and the 3 year old had NONE! I got the xrays from KS to show the new dentist, and they couldn't believe how many xrays were taken-they must get paid per xray! All KS cares about is getting money from people with no insurance, or getting money from the state for people with state insurance, and they absolutely don't care what they have to do to the kids on their "assembly line" in order to get it!! Whenever I hear anybody say their child goes there, I say they must have a lot of cavities, and sure enough, they've all had alot of fillings, and even crowns-it makes me sick!!!
