Become a Housecall Dentist
The oral care needs of geriatric patients are much different than those of younger and even middle-aged patients, and often present more challenges to dentists. However, this population is often overlooked and underserved. With the geriatric population continuing to grow worldwide, serving this geriatric community is an incredible opportunity for dentists who want to make a difference in a niche area.
Dr. Kauffman has developed methods to treat patients with Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia, and she has revolutionized the field of home health care dentistry with her geriatric dental consulting practice. At this point in her career, she feels it is time to share her expertise with those who want to provide quality oral care to the geriatric population. She is expanding her Geriatric House Call Dentistry business into a network of dentists devoted to addressing the needs of geriatric homebound patients and those with Alzheimer’s or dementia. Eventually, she plans to make this program worldwide.
