You’ve found the online home of the premiere home care dentist serving Carlsbad and the surrounding areas. Dr. Richard A. Nguyen earned his degree from Temple University School of Dentistry in 1998 and began to practice general dentistry soon after. He’s since moved into practicing geriatric dentistry via his mobile practice throughout Southern California. Our mobile practice started when Dr. Nguyen noted the lack of a proper house call dentist serving patients in multiple counties. When he observed his own elderly father’s difficulty in obtaining quality home dental care, he knew he had to step up. Since doing so, our mobile dental practice has grown to serve Riverside, San Bernardino, Los Angeles, Orange, and San Diego Counties.
The elderly population of Southern California often finds itself without proper access to health and dental care, which means their needs often go by the wayside and their health can suffer as a result. Gum disease and tooth decay can have a serious impact on health and quality of life, resulting in an increased risk of heart disease, which can easily become life-threatening in older patients. Oral pain can quickly impact a person’s quality of life and lead to depression, particularly in people already living with disorders like Alzheimer’s Disease or Parkinson’s Disease. Having an accessible home care dentist serving the Carlsbad area can make a huge difference in a patient’s comfort level, which is a large part of why we do what we do. We always want our patients to feel comfortable and at ease. The easiest place to help them feel that way is their own home. As a house care dentist, Dr. Nguyen is able to bring all the latest technology to a patient’s residence and provide routine and advanced dental procedures including cleanings, fillings, extractions, crowns, and more.
Our mobile practice can visit patients in independent living, assisted living, nursing homes, hospice care, and other housing facilities. We’re happy to provide a quality home care dentist to patients throughout Carlsbad and nearby communities. If you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment, please reach out anytime.
