Using an In Home Dentist in Southern California

If you’ve been looking for an in home dentist in Southern California, you might be coming up blank. It’s difficult to find a qualified senior dentist that serves the aging population in our area, which is exactly why our dentist, Dr. Richard Nguyen, decided to begin his mobile dentistry practice. In his quest to become the best in home dentist available to patients throughout So Cal, he’s worked hard to provide essential services for elderly and homebound patients with the most up-to-date dental technology available.

What Makes For The Best In Home Dentist?

A huge part of providing necessary care is accessibility. For many geriatric and infirm patients, making regular trips to a dental office difficult or impossible due to a number of conditions ranging from Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s Diseases to dementia and mobility issues. Without someone caring for accessibility concerns, many people may be missing out on essential care that maintains their health and improves their quality of life. For patients who cannot leave their home, they may find themselves living with pain, discomfort, infection, damaged teeth, and worse.

From the start, our mission at In-House Dental Care has been to provide the highest quality dental care to the homebound aging population. In order to do that, we’ve made it our mission to create a mobile dentistry practice that travels with the most up-to-date technology and equipment so we can provide patients everything they need without the necessity of coming into the office. When Dr. Nguyen noticed how difficult it was for his own aging father to obtain proper care, he made it a priority to provide residents of Southern California an outlet for their care regardless of circumstances.

Today, we’re proudly serving cities in Riverside, Los Angeles, Orange, and San Diego counties, including many areas with high elderly populations. We’re flexible and can travel to residential homes, assisted living facilities, hospice care, nursing homes, or wherever our patients need us. Even with this level of flexibility, we’re able to provide major dental procedures, from routine cleanings and fillings to extractions and denture fittings.

Southern California deserves the best in home dentist, and we’re happy to continue providing that service for many years to come. Whether you’re a patient yourself or the caretaker of one or more elderly patients, you’ll find all the convenience and care you need at our practice.

Introducing Dr. Richard Nguyen, DMD

When he observed his 84-year-old father unable to access quality dental care, Dr. Richard Nguyen, DMD began to have some idea of what he could do to help. With the seed of an idea in mind, he spoke with his sister, a geriatric physician, and they both came to the same conclusion: access to a dentist house call is necessary for many elderly and homebound patients, but there weren’t many options serving Southern California. Dr. Nguyen decided to remedy that by starting In-House Dental Care.

In Home Dental Care You Can Trust

Our elderly population has a number of special needs, ranging from mobility issues to degenerative cognitive disease, and these needs can make it difficult or impossible to get to an office so they can get the care they need. When patients are dealing with conditions such as Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, and dementia, keeping them comfortable and preventing unneeded stress becomes the top priority. Dental health is essential for overall health — numerous studies link gum disease with heart disease — but stress impacts health, as well. In order to receive complete and effective care, a dentist house call is often best for both patients and caretakers.

The best way Dr. Nguyen could think of to serve his patients was to ensure that they always have access to quality dental care, no matter where in Southern California they’re located or what their circumstance. He’s made his practice mobile and flexible enough to serve patients in:

  • Independent living
  • Assisted living
  • Nursing homes
  • Full-time care
  • Even those in hospice

There’s no reason why a homebound patient should have to forego proper treatment or live with discomfort, and mobile dentistry makes access possible.

Quality of life is of the utmost importance for the aging population, and tooth pain, decay, and discomfort can greatly affect that quality. Study after study indicates that gum disease and overall dental health are directly tied to other illnesses, like heart disease, which are all the more important to pay attention to in older patients who can be adversely affected. In-House Dental Care and Dr. Richard Nguyen, DMD bring all of the technology and convenience of a modern dental office to a patient’s home to perform procedures like cleanings, fillings, extractions, crowns, and denture fittings, all of which can help improve a patient’s wellbeing and overall health.

Introducing Your Mobile In Home Dentist

We all know that maintaining proper dental health and hygiene is important, but as we age, it becomes more difficult to keep up with proper care due to mobility issues, illness, cognitive disability, and more. Eventually, it becomes near impossible to make it to an office for regular appointments. So how do you maintain proper senior dental care when you can’t leave your house? By finding a reputable in home dentist!

The In Home Dentist You Can Count On

Here at In-House Dental Care, our own Dr. Richard Nguyen found that there was an obvious dearth in the mobile dental care available to senior and homebound patients. This becomes a problem when patients with compromised health or immunity, or even simply advanced age, don’t receive their routine care and end up suffering from the effects of gum disease, tooth decay, pain, damage, and other issues.

This is exactly why it’s so important to find a reliable mobile dentist who can visit elderly and homebound patients in the comfort of their own homes to provide them with the care they need to remain comfortable and healthy. Our patients live with a number of physical and cognitive disorders ranging from Parkinson’s Disease to Alzheimer’s Disease, and it’s extra important to be able to give them the special care they need to help them feel as relaxed as possible. Senior dental care can include anything from a routine cleaning to extractions and denture fittings, and any unnecessary stress on the patient can complicate things. In order to receive the best care, we keep our patients as comfortable as we can throughout any procedure.

Dr. Nguyen is a mobile in home dentist, which means we bring everything we need to wherever our patients are, including any tools and equipment. We serve counties throughout Southern California, including:

Our practice is able to visit elderly or infirm patients in private residences, assisted living facilities, nursing homes, and long term care communities, as well as patients residing in hospice care.

There are more than enough reasons to consider mobile home dentistry for all your dental care needs, so whether you’re an individual in need of in-home care or a caretaker for one or more elderly or housebound patients, we’ll be happy to work with you to make sure all our patients get proper dental care. The improvement in quality of life and health will be immediately noticeable! We’d love to get to know you, so give us a call today.
