A quality home care dentist serving La Mesa is only a phone call away! In-House Dental Care is the house call dental care segment of Dr. Richard A. Nguyen’s geriatric dental practice. As a member of both the Alzheimer’s Association and the National Aging in Place Council, finding solutions to maintain the dignity and quality of life of Southern California’s aging population has been a top priority for Dr. Nguyen. For patients living with diseases like Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s, a home care dentist can give them access to care they’d otherwise lack.
There’s no denying the impact of dental health on overall health. Study after study indicates a direct link between gum disease and heart disease. In older patients, heart disease can easily be exacerbated by existing health issues or advanced age, so it becomes even more important to maintain routine dental care. Tooth problems can cause discomfort or pain that negatively affects quality of life, and if a patient can’t come in for an office visit, these issues can quickly lead to depression, particularly if other cognitive disorders are in effect. By operating as a home care dentist for the La Mesa area, Dr. Nguyen can provide essential care to homebound patients. Our house call dental care practice brings our mobile dentistry unit directly to your door, along with the latest dental technology.
