A Domiciliary Dental Service for Care Home Resident's

LOOKING AFTER THOSE WHO LOOKED AFTER US

We have been treating care home patients on a domiciliary basis throughout 2015 and we now believe we offer a service that suits all care homes and their residents. Our mission is to maintain a functional oral condition for residents on a cost effective basis by the use of preventative techniques. We often discover that the oral condition of seniors has rapidly deteriorated through inadvertent neglect. This can result in dental discomfort and pain leading to unwelcome emergencies. Presently it is difficult for care homes to obtain the services of NHS domiciliary dentists so from a resident's perspective prevention is far superior to dental pain.

OUR 6+ BUDGET SERVICE IS A SOLUTION TO CARE HOME DENTAL PROBLEMS

This service is relevant for those residents unable to visit a dental practice and those that do not have a local dentist or the support to get to one. Some of our patients simply prefer to be seen at the care home. Provided there are 6+ residents per care home we will undertake

A DOMICILIARY DENTAL ASSESSMENT FOR ONLY £20

If following the assessment a resident requires domiciliary dental treatment we will undertake this provided the resident joins our service

ROUTINE DENTAL TREATMENT IS £175 OR £15 PER MONTH

Appointments to see patients at the care home will be made as soon as possible. This service can be paid for as a one off £175 or deferred over 12 months. This pays for one routine appointment per annum. Additional visits are chargeable at £50 each. Our services include:

FILLINGS, MINOR EXTRACTIONS, SCALING AND POLISHING, DENTURE INSPECTION, ANTIFUNGAL AND PREVENTATIVE TREATMENT WITH A BESPOKE ORAL CARE PLAN

The scheme includes the cost of fillings and minor extractions we consider safe to undertake at the care home provided the resident is sufficiently robust. If more serious work is identified or there is a requirement for special arrangements the DenproCare team will work with the care home to make appropriate referrals.

THE SERVICE GUARANTEES AN ON CALL DOMICILIARY DENTIST FOR 12 MONTHS

Following assessment and treatment if the patient requires to be seen by a dentist as a result of dental pain or for a dental emergency we will arrange this within an appropriate timescale

OUR CLINICIANS ARE SKILLED IIN THE DENTAL TREATMENT OF SENIORS WITH DEMENTIA AND WE UNDERSTAND THE CARE HOME SETTING AND THE DEMANDS PLACED UPON WELFARE DECISION MAKERS

We are usually successful with the assessment and treatment of most residents but there are special rebate arrangements for patients we can only partially assess and treat. If on the day of appointment we are unable to see a patient we will contact the Welfare Decision Maker to arrange a second appointment.


We can help Care Homes with important decisions in respect of compliance and resident Welfare.

Please contact us if you are interested in this service. We can supply you with further information, consent forms and posters which you can display in your home.
