On-Site Dental Care that Goes the Extra Mile
Spa Creek Dental arranges on-site personalized dental treatment and oral hygiene programs for residents of senior living communities. Many residents at these communities are not eager or capable of making a trip to the dentist. Having to arrange for transportation while dealing with cognitive, memory, or mobility challenges can make a trip to the dentist almost impossible.
Unlike a traditional dental practice, our dentists and clinician team come to you. We bring our equipment into your senior living community, so residents don't have to leave the comfort of their home to receive care. Nothing could be easier.
Why Dental Health Is Critical for Seniors
Poor dental health can increase the risk of heart disease, diabetes, stroke, and pneumonia. Statistics show that 93% of adults 65 years old and older have cavities (NIH.gov) and 70% adults 65 years old and older have periodontal disease (CDC.gov). The bacteria that causes periodontal disease and cavities can enter the bloodstream and produce infections and cause other health complications. This is why good oral health is critical for seniors, especially those at live-in care communities.

“I just returned from my mother’s dental cleaning. In the past, my wife has accompanied my mother to the dentist and assisted by keeping her calm during her exam and cleaning. Spa Creek Dental was able to perform the procedure without any help from us. I was absolutely amazed. They have a gift for working with Alzheimer’s patients, and it was a very positive experience for my mother. Thank you.”
