For elderly and homebound patients, having a home care dentist visit your Escondido residence can make an enormous difference in your oral health and overall quality of life. Oral health affects your overall health, with numerous studies linking gum disease directly to heart disease. When a patient already has compromised health due to advanced age or other disease, the impact can be catastrophic. A dentist house call brings all the latest dental technology and a skilled dentist right to your front door.
Dr. Richard A. Nguyen has practiced general dentistry for many years and supported organizations like the National Aging in Place Council and Alzheimer’s Association as a board member. Providing quality home dental care to the aging population has been his passion ever since he saw the trouble his own homebound father had in obtaining good care. Since that time, he’s expanded his practice to mobile dentistry and now serves as a home care dentist in Escondido and throughout San Diego County, as well as Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, Ventura, and San Bernardino Counties. Our practice is able to visit patients who live in independent living, assisted living, nursing homes, and hospice care. With all the latest technology at his disposal, Dr. Nguyen can act as a home care dentist to provide basic and advanced dental healthcare, from fillings and cleanings to crowns and extractions. Your health is very important to us and we’ll do everything we can to make sure you get the care you need in the place where you feel most comfortable.
Patients with physical or cognitive disorders like Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s Disease may find leaving home to be difficult or even impossible. Their dental health should not be forfeit even if this is the case. We’re proud to provide dental house calls to patients throughout Southern California, no matter where they live. If you find yourself or your residents in need of a home care dentist serving Escondido, please give us a call to set up an appointment.
