Located in the hills of northern Mississippi, Tupelo's Southern charm will win you over
Tupelo's shopping is hard to beat with a breadth of retail options ranging from high-end to one of a kind antiques. Shoppers are loyal to this retail hub and it shows, with some of the highest charted retail sales in Mississippi.
This city holds innovation and education in high regard and is home to the University of Mississippi. The Tupelo Public School District participates in the MacBook Distribution Policy, which supplies each student in grade 6-12, with their own school-owned Apple MacBook for the entire school year.
Tupelo lends itself to the slow pace of southern living while also maintaining the relevance of a metropolitan city. Here, citizens enjoy monthly festivals, live music, shopping and fine dining. In 2008, it's public schools received national attention when Sports Illustrated ranked them "third best high school athletic program in the nation."
Weekends are a breeze with Tupelo's endless list of things to do. Plan a family trip to the Tupelo Buffalo Park and Zoo, Tupelo Automobile Museum - the largest of its kind in the us, or Natchez Trace National Park, which extends from Natchez, Mississippi to Nashville, TN.
Weekends at the lake are just one more perk of living in Tupelo. Engulfed by 40 acres of lush greenery and natural wildlife, Tupelo's Tombigbee State Park is the perfect backdrop to a weekend camping trip, bike ride, or nature walk.

Dr. Diane Earle, DDS
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.
