House Call Dentistry
To fulfill his goal of making dental care available to all, Dr. Itani offers a carefully designed House Call service in addition to the general dentistry provided in his office. This Special Care Service provides treatment at home, hospital, or assisted living facility to patients for whom a dental office visit is a struggle due to immobility issues related to age, special needs, phobia, or other compromising conditions.
It is carefully structured to bring the experience, expertise, and equipment needed for home treatment of nearly all dental conditions, whether routine or complex, with the utmost care and concern for a patient’s comfort and wellbeing.
Any procedure performed in your place of residence would be performed with the same degree of care and just as they would be performed in a dental office.
An initial visit would include an exam, x-rays and teeth cleaning if needed. If indicated by the exam, more substantial treatment such as fillings or extractions would be scheduled for a follow up appointment. The follow up work would be detailed in a prepared Treatment Plan that would describe the recommended treatment, options, and costs. It would be presented to the patient or appropriate party for discussion and approval prior to treatment.
Procedures that can be performed during a House Call include:
- Night guards
- Teeth Whitening
If a patient has a condition such as Cerebral Palsy that may make difficult for the patient to follow the dentist’s instructions, hospital or dental office treatment with anesthesia may be necessary.
