Older people may neglect their oral health but nursing home dental services in California (CA) are making sure that they do not. Nursing homes provide medical care and they provide the lovely kind of care that ageing people need to have, such as hairdressers and beauty consultants. They make it as easy as they can for people to get access to the care that they need, be it physical therapy, social therapy, beauty therapy and of course, medicine. But in all of this, between all the activities organized and the visits to or by theatres, for all the occupational therapies and tea and biscuits, the one thing that is often neglected is dental care. But nursing homes in California are one step ahead of everyone else. And they have organized mobile dental care services for the elderly.
Mobile dental care services for the aged
Offering and being involved in mobile dental care is a novel and really good idea. It is forward-thinking. Old people have problems with their teeth and even if they don’t, they need to look after their oral health. Getting a dentist to come and visit a patient is almost impossible, simply because a dentist needs a lot of tools, equipment, good light and running water. But a mobile dental care service is different to a dentist who just pays a house call. A mobile dental van is fully kitted out with all the tools, equipment, good light and running water that a dental practice needs. And so the entire dental practice comes to the old aged home, not just a single dentist carrying a single bag. It is a fantastic idea and one that California is really proud of being the smart state who thought of it first.
