On-Site Dental Care for Seniors and Home Bound Patients

How Off-Site Dentistry Works

Dr. Watkins has designated Fridays to providing quality dental care to nursing home residents and home bound patients.

Once our office has received consent and medical history for the patient from either the patient or designated care giver (P.O.A.), we make arrangements for an initial consultation, exam and oral cancer screening.

After the evaluation is complete, Dr. Watkins will provide a plan for addressing any issues that may cause pain or infection. He will provide options for maximizing function and ensuring that the patient can comfortably chew and eat food. Most importantly, Dr. Watkins and his team will create a personalized plan for the daily care and hygiene of the patient’s mouth. All of this is designed to improve patient care and overall health.

Dr. Watkins and his staff will continue to communicate with all concerned parties to make appointments, keep good records and make sure that the patient and families have all the necessary information to make informed decisions about the patient’s oral health.
