Georgia programs could cut dental care

August 7, 2007

By Lindsey Ferguson

Valdosta - Seventy-one thousand children across the state could soon loose their dental care.

Peach State Health Plan and Wellcare are expected to terminate their contract with Kool Smiles General Dentistry for Kids by the end of the month.

The company only treats children on Medicaid or Peach Care.

The loss could force the Atlanta-based business to close.

Kool Smiles has ten offices in Georgia including one in Valdosta.
