As we age, we lose some of our mobility. It becomes more difficult to leave the house and run around to get things done. Simple trips like dentist appointments can become a much bigger deal. Fortunately for residents at our assisted living homes in Surprise and Goodyear, Arizona, there are mobile dentists that come to us.
Mobile dentists can come right to our homes or yours. They usually drive modified RV’s that are like dentist office’s on wheels. There are chairs, X-ray machines, drills (yuck) and any other equipment a dentist might need in the vehicle. People just walk out of their homes in Surprise and Goodyear and go right into the dental chair.
We thought we would profile two mobile dentist businesses that can help Goodyear and Surprise families. Who knows? Maybe you don’t have a senior loved one or someone with limited mobility. Maybe you just like the convenience of having the dentist come to you? Although mobile dentists are great for the elderly, they can also help people who are just busy.
Mobile Dentistry of Arizona
These mobile dentists have been around since 2009. Their founders realized that although oral care in America in general was improving, it has been declining in the disabled and elderly population.
Mobile Dentistry of Arizona focuses on individuals who have a hard time leaving their homes or workplaces. They have the following staff to support their excellent dental care:
- 3 Dentists
- 3 Assistants and
- 2 Hygienists
Their mobile offices even have lifts for wheelchairs, mobile scooters and ambulatory devices. From their vehicles, these dentists can provide specialty services such as oral surgery (extractions and implants), dentures and partials. There may be some lab work that Mobile Dentistry has to send out. But most every other dentist service is available right in front of your Surprise or Goodyear home or place of work.
