When someone is bedridden or unable to leave the house, organizations like Meals on Wheels reach out to seniors to make sure they receive much-needed meals and interaction. As a member of the National Aging in Place Council and Alzheimer’s Association, Dr. Richard Nguyen knows how vital these services can be. However, when it comes to dental care, it can be harder to find a quality mobile dentist for seniors.
Dental Care Designed For Seniors
As people age, it might be become more and more difficult to leave their home to visit a traditional dental office. Neglecting dental health can lead to discomfort and other health issues. There’s a senior dentist who can help. Dr. Richard Nguyen is an experienced geriatric dentist who has worked with patients with a wide range of special needs, including:
- Parkinson’s Disease
- Alzheimer’s Disease
- Other cognitive and physical impairments
He works directly with assisted living facilities like Atria, Brightwater, and Sunflower Gardens to make sure their residents receive high quality dental care when they need it. He also works with smaller boarding homes and people living in private residences. He coordinates with physicians, caregivers, and family members as needed to schedule appointments and arrange treatment.
Whether we are traveling to a large assisted living facility or a private home, we make the patient comfortable. We often treat patients laying down in bed, and we can also help patients in wheelchairs, on the sofa, or in a recliner. Our goal is to always make sure the patient is as comfortable as possible.
Everyone deserves great dental care, even if they can’t access a traditional dental office. That’s why In-House Dental Care travels to assisted living facilities, long term care homes, and private residences to treat elderly patients. We also visit patients in hospice. We provide the same standard of treatment you would expect in a dentist’s office, in the comfort of your home. Call our team today to schedule an appointment.
