One of the fastest growing cities in the South, Baton Rouge is a major metropolis with a rich past and a bright future.
Day or night, Baton Rouge is brimming with fun things to to do. The city offers a host of family friendly attractions, like the Baton Rouge Zoo or the Blue Bayou Water Park. For a fun Friday night excursion, check out one of the city's many nightlife hotspots, or cheer on your favorite team at an LSU sporting event. Folks of all ages can find excitement twelve months out of the year by attending one of Baton Rouge's many festivals that celebrate the art, music, and food of the region.
Baton Rouge's vibrant arts scene is abuzz with activity year round. The city has several arts and cultural districts, which are home to a bevy of galleries and performing arts venues. LSU also plays a prominent role in the Baton Rouge arts community, and offers a wealth of cultural events to the public. The city's rich history is on display at the 69,000 square-foot Capitol Park Museum downtown, and can also be experienced by touring the hundreds of historic sites that pepper the city's landscape.
Baton Rouge's Louisiana State University has a student body of over 32,000 and is the largest university in the state. LSU boasts several highly ranked graduate schools, including the E.J. Ourso College of Business and the Paul M. Hebert Law Center.

Baton Rouge is famous for its delectable array of culinary offerings.

If you're craving fresh-caught seafood, don't miss the Boudin Balls at Tony's Seafood or the andouille-encrusted fish at Parrain's. For classic American eats, order up ribs at Zea Rotisserie & Grill or burgers at Louie's Cafe by LSU.
At 450 feet, Baton Rouge's capitol building is the tallest state capitol building in the United States, and a fixture of the Baton Rouge Skyline (white building, far left). Built in 1928 in the Art Deco architectural style, the capitol and its breaktaking gardens are an oft-visited landmark by residents and tourists alike.

At the end of each day, everyone at Kool Smiles knows they've accomplished something that matters—something that makes a difference in the world—a positive change in the lives of children and their families.
Having the right dentist makes all the difference in the world. Our dentists share a common bond: they are passionate about providing quality dental care to families. All of our dentists go through Kool Smiles training upon hire and continue to receive company sponsored continuing education. Many of our dentists are active in both local, regional, or state dental associations, serve on Medicaid advisory boards, and participate in national associations such as American Dental Association and American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.
Kool Smiles is committed to expanding access to quality dentistry and oral healthcare services in underserved communities.
Lack of healthcare coverage, or being enrolled in the Medicaid program, should not undermine an individual’s access to vital dental services.
80% of the nation’s 179,000 practicing dentists refuse to provide care to Medicaid enrollees.
We’ve partnered extensively with local schools, daycares and community organizations to provide much-needed oral health screenings and supplies, free of charge. In 2012 alone, Kool Smiles provided over $18.5 million in dental services to children with no form of payment for those procedures, simply because it was in the best interest of the children and their health.
In addition to strong clinical oversight, Kool Smiles has implemented an advanced electronic health records (EHR) system that is used in every Kool Smiles office across the country to measure and report on clinical compliance. The system is closely monitored by our dental clinical leaders to assure all dentists are in compliance with professional standards as well as ADA and AAPD guidelines.
