Portable DENTISTRY

Treating Patients in their Familiar Environment and Helping Those Who Have Limited Mobility Receive Care

Services we offer:

  • Comprehensive Exams

    • Generally done in person, but may be a combination of in person and teledentistry​

  • Limited Emergency Exams​

    • Generally done with  teledentistry​

  • Periodic Exams:

    • both in person and/or through teledentistry

      • This determination is made by the dentist. ​

  • X-rays​

    • Generally will be taken by the hygienist and read by the dentist offsite but also may be taken by the dentist/dental assistant. 

  • Professional Cleanings ​

    • These are generally done by our hygienists​, however may be done by the dentist if hygienist is unavailable. 

  • Fluoride Varnish: ​

    • This is a sticky substance that contains fluoride and  helps strengthen the teeth. It helps prevent cavities. ​This may be applied by the dentist, hygienist, dental assistant, or with supervision by the caregivers. 

  • Chemical Cavities Control : ​

    • Sometimes we can manage oral disease with topical chemicals. The most commonly used chemical for this is called Silver Diamine Fluoride. This does well to control the cavity, but leaves a black stain where the cavity is on the tooth.  ​This may be applied by the dentist, hygienist, dental assistant, or with supervision by the caregivers.  

  • Fillings​

    • We do composite (white), amalgam (silver), and glass ionomer (white) materials.​

  • Extractions: ​

    • We are very limited on what we offer with extractions, we often have patients see the oral surgeon or come into a more traditional clinic for extractions.​ Few exceptions are made. 

  • Denture Adjustments/Repair:​

    • We do minor adjustments and minor repair

  • Assisted Oral Hygiene/Guided Oral Hygiene:

    • We are developing a program that will help residents regularly with their brushing and cleaning between their teeth. This is currently being piloted with a few selected patients in both Desano Place and Creekside. We look forward to having this be a service offered to all patients in the future. ​It is currently offered through temporary HRSA grant funding. At this point we are looking for organizations to help us continue the funding for this so that we can sustain it for those residents currently receiving the services and extend it to the entire facility.  If you or your business would like to help, please contact Dr. Brooke at yourspecialsmiles@gmail.com
