Learn about the benefits of using a mobile dentist in San Clemente right here on our site. Dr. Richard Nguyen is a geriatric dentist who’s a member of the American Dental Association, California Dental Association, National Aging in Place Council, and Alzheimer’s Association. He first noticed the dearth of mobile dentistry in Southern California when he observed his own aging father struggling to access proper care. This illustrated the great need for a mobile in home dentist who could serve the homebound elderly population. After conferring with his sister, a geriatric physician, Dr. Nguyen decided to lead the charge and being his own mobile practice as In-House Dental Care.
By offering mobile dentist services to the San Clemente area, Dr. Nguyen helps ensure the aging population has proper access to the care they need to stay comfortable and healthy. Gum disease is closely linked to heart disease, and tooth decay can cause a host of health problems that can be exacerbated by advanced age. This makes routine dental care and prompt treatment of issues a priority for older patients. However, many of these patients are living with diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, or dementia, which make it very difficult for them to regularly leave home for office visits.
