Welcome to HomeCare Dentists of Southern California
Dedicated to Compassion and Quality
We bring quality care to patients, regardless of age, who cannot access it in traditional setting, as well as dental education and training to those who serve the senior community.
Locations and Patients We Frequently Visit
We travel to our patients to provide quality, compassionate dental care.
HomeCare Dentists started back in 1993 as a part-time job. It has now become a full-time vocation. In Southern California (Orange County, San Diego County, and the South Bay area of Los Angeles County), we bring our dental office operatory to where the patient lives. Now, this is not a concierge-type of service, although we have done that. We focus mostly on individuals who have difficulty accessing dental care in a fixed office setting.
Our patients run the gamut of mental and physical conditions: Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, dementia, comatose, bed-bound, handicapped, agoraphobic, wheelchair-bound, paralyzed, elderly, blind, can’t drive, middle-aged…you name it, we probably have a compromised patient with that condition.
Our goal is to bring quality dental care on-site to anyone who cannot access dental care in a traditional setting. To be more specific, our mission is to “provide quality, compassionate dental care” to seniors within their living environment, as well as dental education and training to those who serve the senior community. We want to prevent some of the perio-systemic effects of periodontal disease (also called the Mouth-Body Connection). These include pneumonia, heart disease, heart attack, stroke, diabetes, and possibly Alzheimer’s or dementia.
Our services include much more than cleanings, though. We are able to perform most services that a regular fixed office can including composites, crowns, bridges, partials, dentures, relines, denture adjustments and extractions, including taking x-rays. We have state of the art mobile equipment that includes a compressor, portable digital x-ray machine and intra-oral camera. With our software, we are able to take digital x-rays and photographic images, maximizing the communication with the patient, caregiver and responsible party (family or guarantor of the patient). You can find out more by calling (800) 382-3938.
