Get in touch with us today and we can let you know if we have been to your facility before. If not, we will work with you and your facility to set up days that we can come out to care for the dental health of your senior loved one.
What dental services are included in a new patient visit?
An initial Dental Care visit by MDS includes a Comprehensive Exam, Full Mouth Series of Dental X-rays, Routine Cleaning and a Fluoride Varnish treatment. MDS highly suggests doing a Comprehensive Exam and preliminary X-rays during the initial visit. This allows our mobile dental team to get a baseline of your loved one’s previous dental treatment. Using these records, we can also diagnose any new tooth decay or treatment needed in their future. However, if your loved one has had X-rays in the past year, then we can use those. We are more than happy to follow up with the previous dentist, to acquire those records. In addition, our mobile dentist also does an oral cancer screening during this initial patient visit.
Is Fluoride treatment required?
No, it is NOT required. However, it is vital for older adults' dental care needs and prevention of tooth decay. We use fluoride treatment because it mineralizes the enamel of a patient's teeth to prevent decay. Fluoride is the most cost effective measure of avoiding more long-term dental treatment needs.
Does Mobile Dental Solutions get approval from the patient’s primary care doctor?
Absolutely! Mobile Dental Solutions believes in transparency and constant communication. In addition to speaking with the patient's primary care physician surrounding past medical history, we also follow up with the primary care physician to get approval for any dental procedure that is conducted. We take the health of a patient seriously, and would never endanger that sacred trust.
Does Medicaid cover dental services?
How often does Medicaid get billed?
MDS immediately bills Medicaid after a loved one’s appointment with our mobile dentist.
Does MDS accept credit cards?
MDS accepts most major credit cards, including VISA, Mastercard, and Discover for payments. Payments can be easily made by calling our office, or by paying online.
