Dental Hygiene for Homebound Patients
Jan Marie is an RDHAP licensed by the State of California to provide preventative hygiene procedures on-site in adult and special needs day care facilities, skilled nursing facilities, and assisted living senior centers.
An RDHAP is a Registered Dental Hygienist in Alternative Practice. RDHAPs are dental professionals who meet the needs of an underserved population. They have their own independent business and travel to different settings rather than a dental office. They provide specific preventative procedures such as:
Oral health screenings
Periodontal cleanings, prophylaxis
Patient oral hygiene instruction
Topical fluoride treatments
Referral and custom personalized recommendation
RDHAP can provide services to schools, clinics, skilled nursing facilities, private homes of the homebound. They use portable dental equipment to deliver dental treatment in the area where the patient is comfortable. By minimizing anxiety and stress, they can provide procedures to improve the patient’s health and quality of life. Research states that the whole body health has a direct relationship with periodontal and oral health.
Why Use an RDHAP?
Preventative dental care is important to avoid extensive dental treatment. Neglecting oral care can create financial and painful situations. We work directly with your personal physician, dentist, nursing directors and staff to provide you the dental care you need.
