Apple Tree Dental operates a comprehensive mobile dental service to provide on-site care to nursing homes, group homes, Head Start centers, schools, and assisted living facilities. Our goal is to provide appropriate, necessary and cost-effective dental care to residents who would otherwise have to travel to see the dentist. The advantage, especially when working with the elderly or disabled residents, is that the care center is a familiar place, so the dental appointment becomes easier and less stressful on the patient.
Dental Teams travel to one "satellite site" each day with a dentist and two assistants. Apple Tree's Multi-site delivery vehicle delivers the portable dental equipment into the building and a complete dental office is set-up within minutes. The Dental teams provide such dental care services such as check-ups, cleanings, fillings, root canals and tooth extractions. At the end ofthe day equipment is picked-up and delivered to another site.
Dentists also work with patients on their denture needs. Dentists make impressions for new dentures, relines and repairs. Using Apple Tree's in-house dental lab, new dentures generally take from four to six visits.
Denture repairs usually take three to four days, with special rush services available.
