Frequently Asked Questions

Who qualifies for a house call?

We are committed to providing expert, compassionate dental care, regardless of age or infirmity. If you or someone under your care have difficulty traveling to a dentist, we will bring the care to you.

We frequently make house call visits to the homes and/or living communities of the elderly, those who are homebound with medical complications, adults and children with special needs, and even those who just require privacy.

Do you handle dental emergencies?

Dental emergencies will be handled immediately, and at home, to the full extent possible. We are on-call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, providing prompt response to dental emergencies. We may even be able to help you avoid a trip to the emergency room.

What areas do you service?

We serve a wide area, but typically cities and counties within a 60 mile radius of our San Francisco and New York City locations, which include:

Alameda County
Contra Costa County
Marin County
Napa County
San Francisco County

What services do you offer?

Our team of dentists, registered dental assistants, and hygienists provide all of the services of a traditional dental office, but the care is delivered to you. Our services include: digital x-rays, intraoral photographs and treatment (crowns/bridges, extractions, fillings, dentures, partial dentures) with portable dental equipment.

Our team is on call 24/7/365 for dental emergencies.

Some dental procedures cannot be completed in the home, due to the complexity of treatment or safety considerations. If necessary, we will provide these procedures, either at our dental offices or at one of the many hospitals with which we work. We can help you receive transport should this be necessary.

What can we expect during an initial house call?

For your initial house call, our dentist will arrive with a registered dental assistant. We’ll get to know you by reviewing your medical and dental history, listening carefully to your concerns and answering all of your questions. If you are a caregiver we will go through the same process with you on behalf of your loved one or charge. We do not start working until you are absolutely comfortable that we fully understand the needs of everyone concerned.

Comfort for infirm patients

We are experienced at putting our patients at ease, and we are able to make full accommodations for patients who are bedbound or in a wheelchair.

Examination and diagnosis

The dentist will conduct a visual examination, looking for issues involving discomfort and/or pain, proper function and aesthetics. Our initial assessment includes diagnosis of cavities, gum disease, oral cancer, infection and/or abscesses, proper denture fit, dry mouth and loose teeth. Our dental assistant will also take photos of your mouth for your records.

Next comes a full set of x-rays, focusing in on areas of particular concern, which the dentist can interpret immediately.

Consultation and treatment planning

Based on what we learn from the examination and x-rays, we will consult with you regarding our diagnoses and review your treatment options. Shortly after our initial visit, a patient care coordinator will contact you to schedule cleanings and any further treatment necessary. This includes a discussion of fees, insurance options and possible payment plans. Whenever possible, follow up care will be arranged at your (or your charge’s) residence.

What kind of follow-up care do you recommend for house call patients?

In-Home Hygiene Care

If you wish and if necessary, we can arrange to have a mobile dental hygienist visit you to provide:

  • A professional cleaning
  • An in-depth oral cancer screening
  • Fluoride treatments
  • Oral hygiene instruction

The dental hygienist, a trusted member of our team, will remain in continued communication with the dentist regarding your condition and treatment.

In-Home Follow Up Dental Care

If necessary, the dentist can return to your residence to provide a wide range of follow up dental care including:

  • Basic dental restorations (i.e. fillings)
  • Bridges and crowns and implants
  • Custom nightguard design
  • Custom fluoride trays creation
  • Full- and partial denture creation and adjustments
  • Extractions
  • Full and partial dentures creation

If it is found that you require extensive dental treatment, the procedures may need to be completed in our office or at your local hospital utilizing sedation dentistry or sleep dentistry. We would discuss these options with you and develop the best approach for your/your charge’s needs.

Where will my appointment take place?

In your home or living facility.

Will you talk to my family / caregiver?

With your permission, we will involve anyone you request in your care decisions, including family members, caregivers or health care providers. We also routinely work with conservators, guardians and those with Power of Attorney (POA). We strongly encourage all who will be involved in the decisions regarding treatment to be present for the initial house call visit.

What is the cost? Does dental or medical insurance cover my treatment?

A typical rate for a new patient visit is $495.00 (excluding travel fee).  This cost includes digital x-rays, intraoral photographs, comprehensive examination, oral cancer screening and Oral Health Assessment.

Our team will submit a claim to your dental insurance and you will receive reimbursement directly from insurance, depending on your allowable coverage. Reimbursement can take up to 4 weeks. Medical insurance (including Medi-cal, Denti-cal and Medicare) does not cover for any dental services. However, if you require or prefer sedation, there is coverage for the hospital and anesthesia fees when seen in a hospital setting, should it be medically necessary.

What forms of payment are accepted? And when do I pay?

All major credit/debit cards or check – made out to House Call Dentists. Payment is due on the day of your visit.

Who do I speak to if I have questions about the service offerings, logistics or billing?

You will be assigned a Care Coordinator from our office, who will be your point person for personalized assistance including treatment scheduling, financial arrangements, coordination with providers, and more.
