http://kidssmilenj.com is a website for Pediatric Dentistry practice in New Jersey. The website for Kidssmile looks colorful and friendly. The design has large letters and is easy to read. A kid could probably book their own dentist appointment through this website. I like that Kidssmile shows their contact information immediately on top of the page. I really hate it when I have to look all over the place just to find a contact. It makes me feel like the provider does not want to bother with my concerns or is trying to hide something.
I also like that Kidssmile has a lot of detailed information listed about their various services. They seem like they want to educate the patient and at the same time know what they are doing. Since many parents are very concerned when bringing their children to the dentist, this is sort of a comforting thing to do to put all the necessary information out there.
I particularly like that Kidssmile mentions the name of the doctor who works at the clinic. Dr. Forbes seems to be approachable and well educated. The introduction is simple and straight to the point.
Kidssmile also shows nice pictures of their dental facility on the website. The office space looks big and clean. I would not mind taking my child there from the looks of things.
The one negative aspect of Kidssmile is that there is no information listed about which insurance is accepted or any sort of payment methods. I know people with children are especially interested in the finances when it comes to taking their kids to the doctor. This makes me think that either Dr. Forbes does not accept medical insurance, which is very unusual for a pediatric dentist or has something to hide.
So to get more information about Kidssmile, I decided to look up some Google reviews. So although the reviews are largely positive, what is strange is that they are reviewing some other doctor named Dr. Dawn. This is confusing, but perhaps this was the doctor who worked in the office previously.
As I have predicted, the first customer review read that they stuck the customer will an unusually heavy leftover bill from the insurance company. So I guess Kidssmile does have something to hide. It looks like in the end the unhappy patient ended up leaving the practice over greed.
So overall, Kidssmile seems to be a good service, but just be careful with the charges and maybe try to find out upfront what things are going to cost and what will be covered by your insurance.
