You don’t need to go to the dentist, dental hygienist, or specialist dental technician to receive dental care. Instead, we can send the professionals to you. The care team consists of a dentist, a dental nurse, an oral hygienist and/or a specialist dental technician, depending on the client's needs.
Our modern mobile care equipment enables the same high-quality basic dental care at home as at a clinic. The equipment includes a treatment chair, treatment unit, X-ray machine and normal treatment equipment. If necessary, we can treat the patient even in their own bed or chair. Our service entitles you to Kela compensation.
In our experience, the most challenging part for older people in dental care is accessing the service itself. Nearly a quarter of older seniors use a cane, crutches or a walker daily. Indeed, in nursing homes it has already been found that it is more sensible and cost-effective to take care of the oral health of the elderly on site rather than to have nursing staff to take them to a dental clinic.
There are currently 1.1 million people over the age of 65 in Finland and the amount is growing. As more and more elderly people have their own teeth left, the need for oral disease treatment will multiply in the future.

It saves time and money when people do not have to travel separately to the dentist and are therefore away from school or work. The average time spent visiting a dentist is about 1-2 hours (30-60 minutes for travel + 30-60 minutes for treatment).
Dental care performed at the client’s location saves 50% of the time spent at the dentist. Regular dental check-ups also prevent illness and sick leave.
