Bringing the utmost in compassionate and attentive in-home dental care to Alzheimer’s patients throughout Manhattan.

Are you or a loved one in need of dental care, but unable to easily leave your home? You’re not alone. NYC is home to many geriatric patients who live comfortably in their homes, unable to easily make trips to see a doctor, much less a dental professional. With a passion for patients with Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s Disease, and Dementia – Dr. Alisa Kauffman has made it her career goal to actively reach out to geriatric patients in need of dental care.

If you’ve been trying to find dental professionals to provide a loved one with compassionate Alzheimer’s dental experience NYC trusts, then you’ll want to hear about the good work happening at Geriatric House Call Dentistry. Dr. Alisa Kauffman, Director of geriatric dental care at 3 local nursing homes, and director of the Dental LIFE Program (Living Independently for Elders), specializes in bringing attentive dental care to geriatric patients throughout Manhattan.

In 1995, Dr. Kauffman made Geriatrics her primary focus, and discovered her love of bringing compassionate care to geriatric patients in New York. She spent the following 25 years refining her skills treating the geriatric frail population. In 2010 she used that valuable experience in opening the dental clinic LIFE Center (Living Independently For Elders) at the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine where junior and dental students get to experience treating the geriatric population.
