Are you the primary caregiver for an elderly loved one? As someone who has taken on such a huge responsibility, the experience can be intimidating. Obviously, you want to make sure they are receiving the proper care when it comes to their oral health.
It can be a challenge when it comes to finding quality home dental care for seniors. In this day in age, you may be thinking that it is rare to hear of doctors or dentists making medical house calls.
