Frequently Asked Questions

Here are the answers for your most frequent questions.

What service area do you cover?

The Blende Dental Group’s House Call Dentists serve New York and the greater San Francisco Bay Area, within a 60-mile radius of our offices. To see if your location is covered, check our list.

What treatment will I receive during my initial house call?

For your initial house call, our dentist will arrive with a registered dental assistant. We will get to know you by reviewing your medical and dental history, listening carefully to your concerns, and answering all of your questions. We don’t begin treatment until you’re absolutely confident that we fully understand the needs of everyone concerned.

The dentist will then conduct a visual examination, and the assistant will take photographs of your mouth for your records. Next, they will capture all necessary digital dental x-rays, which the dentist can interpret immediately.

Based on what we learn from the examination and x-rays, we will consult with you regarding our diagnoses and review your treatment options. If we are unable to fix the problem immediately, a patient care coordinator will contact you to schedule any further treatment. Whenever possible, these services will be provided at your residence.

Will I have a cleaning during my initial house call?

Possibly, if that is the primary concern. We work with a team of mobile dental hygienists (called RDHAPs or Registered Dental Hygienists of Alternative Practice). They’re licensed to work in the home and to treat people with special needs. After your initial treatment, we will put you in direct contact with a mobile hygienist nearby and you can schedule follow-up cleanings directly with that person.

Do you take dental x-rays during a house call?

Yes. Dental x-rays are a standard diagnostic tool for dentists. Our state-of-the-art portable x-ray machine and lead x-ray shield ensure minimal exposure to radiation (equal to or less than in-office x-rays). The x-ray images are digital, and can be immediately viewed and interpreted by the dentist on a laptop computer.

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 everyone involved in decisions regarding treatment to be present for the initial house call visit.

Who are the patients who most frequently utilize the Blende Dental Group’s House Call Service?

We frequently make house call visits to the homes and living communities of the elderly. We also visit those who are homebound with special needs or medical complications. We’re committed to working with family members and caregivers to arrange dental care programs specifically designed for the particular needs of each patient within the comfort of their home. The average age of our seniors is 80.

Will I have dental procedures during my initial house call?

The primary purposes of our initial house call are to resolve emergencies, make the initial examinations that will allow us to understand your dental needs, and listen to your questions and concerns. If we can do the required procedures simply and safely in your home, we will perform them using our portable dental equipment.

How long will my house call take?

The average initial house call appointment, including examination and x-rays, takes about one hour. However, your dentist will spend as much time with you as necessary to ensure that all your questions are answered and all your concerns are addressed.

What if I need treatment that cannot be provided in my home?

Some dental procedures can’t be completed in the home, due to the complexity of treatment or safety considerations. If necessary, we will provide these procedures at our dental offices or at one of the many hospitals with which we work. We can assist you with transport if necessary.

What if I have a dental emergency?

The Blende Dental Group is qualified to treat many forms of dental emergencies for the homebound – at the patient’s residence. You may be able to avoid an unnecessary trip to a hospital emergency room if you call us first. For emergencies for those with special needs, we are on-call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, providing prompt response to dental emergencies.

Let's brighten
that smile

The when and where are up to you.
