About Us

Our Mission

The team at House Call Dentists is committed to bringing expert, compassionate dental care to all who need it, regardless of age or infirmity. We know that many people have significant difficulty receiving care in a traditional dentist’s office due to physical, cognitive or emotional challenges. House Call Dentists brings such patients vital dental services at their private homes or residence facilities.

Why House Call Dentistry?

Our unique medical/dental practice was among the first in the country established to care for patients who are unable to be treated in a traditional dental office setting. For over 30 years, we have been working to remove barriers to access to care by delivering premium dental care to patients with unique challenges. Annually, we make over 1,000 house calls to patients in the comfort and safety of their home or in a hospital setting.

The House Call Dentists team is unique and standalone in the advanced training required of our staff. We exceed all hospital standards of immunizations for transmissible diseases, which benefits our house call patients, particularly the frail, elderly or those with immune deficiencies. Our dentists and assistants are fully privileged at hospitals in the San Francisco Bay Area and New York City. Having a multidisciplinary team of nationally-recognized dental specialists, anesthesiologists, and medical doctors allows us to offer a range of treatments, from palliative care to full-mouth restoration.

Why Now?

In our country, we see that the elderly population is living longer. We also now have better recognition of how to care for children and adults with special needs. However, these populations are traditionally underserved, or not served at all, when it comes to dental care.

For those with mobility limitations and cognitive or physical disabilities, our team of mobile dentists and hygienists delivers care in their home. Our high-touch comprehensive services are tailored to meet each patient’s needs and are delivered with expertise and compassion.

The growing demand for our innovative services has not only fueled our significant year-after-year growth, but it has also permitted us to expand our goal of reaching more cities. As we grow our New York and San Francisco team with providers that can meet our high standards, we are concurrently expanding into Seattle, Phoenix, and Chicago.
