Bay Area house call dentist Dr. Amir Ghorbani recently founded Home Care Dentist as a way to meet the needs of an aging population. His advanced portable equipment rolls right into private residences or senior facilities and unfolds into a full-service dental practice complete with x-rays and suction. Home Care Dentist has been a godsend to Bay Area families faced with the challenge of transporting an elderly family member with mobility issues or dementia to a dental office.
“It’s rewarding to make home visits to those patients who may otherwise have gone extended periods of time without proper care. Oral health has been clearly linked to overall health so there is much more at stake with tooth decay and gum disease than the loss of teeth,” says Dr. Ghorbani.
What Dr. Ghorbani and team did not predict when launching their services is the burgeoning subset of Home Care Dentist patients that are entirely free of mobility, aging or phobia concerns and are simply seeking a more modern and convenient solution to their health needs.
“Doing our dentistry at a convenient time at home guarantees that everyone in the family gets their regular cleaning and checkups,” shares Dr. Peter Danzig, entrepreneur, university professor and Home Care Dentist patient.
Dr. Danzig represents the growing sector of Americans who prefer to see healthcare professionals in the comfort of home. As more and more Americans discover and choose the option of seeing their physicians, dentists and even cosmetic surgeons at home, the idea that house calls are “old-fashioned” is being turned on its head. A number of boutique medical operations around the country are now making house calls and Home Care Dentist is among the first to focus exclusively on house call dentistry.
As overscheduled families in the heart of Silicon Valley aim to find balance in their lives, scheduling group appointments at home and savings hours of time that would otherwise be spent in traffic or in a waiting room starts to make perfect sense.
“We’re excited to be offering a reliable, quality solution to Bay Area families and professionals while continuing to cater to the senior community. It’s hard to ignore a dentist appointment when it shows up at your front door,” shares Liz Becker, Patient Coordinator for Home Care Dentist.
Dr. Ghorbani and his team see an opportunity to provide this service to a broader community outside the San Francisco Bay Area in the near future. To inquire about Home Care Dentist’s services, contact dentist(at)homecaredentist(dot)com or visit http://homecaredentist.com.
