Health & Dental Care for Kids
Health and Dental Care For Kids is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization providing primary, dental, and urgent care for patients from 0 to 18 years of age. The organization is co-sponsored by St. Louis Children’s Hospital and Cardinal Glennon Children’s Medical Center.
Health and Dental Care for Kids was established in St. Louis in 1992. Our policy is to never turn away a patient regardless of his or her ability to pay. We accept Missouri Medicaid plans, as well as most forms of commercial insurance. For those patients without medical insurance we offer a deeply discounted fee schedule that allows families to pay a modest amount to cover medical services. We assist familes with enrolling in Missouri Medicaid if uninsured. We receive referrals from OB/GYN’s, Primary Care Physicians, as well as from the Emergency Departments of St. Louis Children’s Hospital and Cardinal Glennon Children’s Medical Center. Our Urgent Care treats patients from other pediatric offices 7 days a week, in the evenings and on Saturdays and Sundays. After Urgent Care treatment, we provide the patient’s Medical Home physician written documentation of the visit. Many of our patients are also self-referred.
Our Board Certified Pediatricians provide medical services including: physicals and immunizations, newborn care, well baby and toddler checks, sick visit care, asthma treatment, diagnostic screenings (e.g. lead, pregnancy, and STDs), referrals for specialty care, and post-inpatient hospital care. We also provide mental health and behavioral assessment and counseling and assistance and referrals for social and emergency services such as food, housing, and transportation.
Our group dental practice allows HDCFK to provide a great range of restorative care. Coordinated care is best provided in an environment where providers have an ability to interact with each other. Our group has brought together doctors with expertise in different areas. This philosophy has allowed HDCFK to incorporate the latest dental technologies and treatment options to offer our patients high quality of care. From the moment a patient comes into our office, they will immediately recognize that Dental Care for Kids is no ordinary dental practice.
To effectively serve our diverse population we contract with a language translation service. In addition, several of our medical and dental staff members are fluent in other languages.
Health Care for Kids is centrally located in midtown St. Louis at 4055 Lindell Blvd (at the Northeast corner of Lindell and Sarah). Our office is easily accessible to residents of the St. Louis region by public transit or automobile.
