Find a home care dentist who serves Alhambra and can visit you in the comfort of your own home. The elderly population is one of the fastest growing demographics in the country, but they’re often woefully underserved for many essential services, including house call dental care. As we age, our oral health becomes increasingly important. Advanced age can result in more tooth decay, breakage, or pain. Without access to good home dental care, homebound patients may see a decline in their comfort level and overall quality of life.
House Call Dental Care To Trust
When he saw the difficulty his one homebound father had in obtaining quality care, Dr. Richard A. Nguyen knew something had to change. He expanded his general dentistry practice to include geriatric and mobile dentistry, focusing on patients who couldn’t easily access a dental office. With the direct link between gum disease and heart disease, it’s especially important for at-risk populations like the elderly to have access to a home care dentist who can visit them in their Alhambra homes. Our mobile practice utilizes the latest dental technology and brings it directly to our patients’ doors. With house call dental care, Dr. Nguyen can perform most standard and advanced dental procedures right in a patient’s residence, keeping them calm and comfortable. Patients with cognitive disorders like Alzheimer’s and dementia may become agitated in unfamiliar surroundings, so being somewhere that helps them feel safe is a great help in getting them the dental care they need. We can visit patients in independent and assisted living facilities, nursing homes, and even hospice care. The procedures available from our mobile practice include cleanings, fillings, crowns, extractions, and denture fittings, among others.
