Dental House Calls

Dental HouseCalls

Dental HouseCalls brings care to people who cannot easily travel to dentist’s offices, including:

• Residents of nursing homes
• Homebound individuals
• People with developmental disabilities attending day programs or living in residential centers

A fully equipped, portable dental office is transported in a van and set up at bedside or in a facility, enabling dentists to provide treatment. Most of the people have very little income and, without this service, would go without care.

The program is staffed by a full-time Coordinator who drives the van, sets up and dismantles the equipment, helps the dentists at chair side and schedules the dentists, facility visits and patients.

Fiscal Year 2013-2014

Patient Visits: 1130
Value of Services: $607,771
