Routine And Preventative Care
At the time of admittance to a skilled nursing facility, many patients have a poor history of dentist visits. From day 1, Golden Age provides diagnostic and preventative care, ensuring that each patient gets on track with their oral health.
Mobile X-Ray And Diagnostic Imaging
A full diagnostic assessment isn’t complete without an x-ray and, often times, diagnostic imaging. To cater to those with limited mobility, Golden Age uses the latest specialized technology to ensure the quickest, safest, most convenient way to bring high-quality care to all the residents of a facility.
Crafting dentures is an area of great pride for Golden Age. Our skilled doctors take care of all the fitting procedures, ensuring a quality product with minimal waiting and discomfort for the patient. Utilizing our own lab, Golden Age also ensures the full quality control of the process, as well as fast turnarounds. Additionally, we take a proactive position with facility and even family members, to ensure that dentures are properly cared for, saving patients money and making their life that bit easier.
We’ve cultivated a knowledge of best practices over our decades of service, enabling us to offer unparalleled attention to patient comfort, as well as patient outcomes. Golden Age is prepped to perform many of the most needed oral surgeries right there at the bedside of our patients. Furthermore, Golden Age constantly explores and utilizes new technologies and techniques to improve our craft.
Golden Age will work to restore a mouth to a functional and esthetic state, performing amalgams and composite fillings as needed, when needed.
Golden Age views emergency calls as a crucial service for a simple reason: when a patient is in pain, a facility’s ability to give them care is greatly hindered. In certain circumstances, an untreated toothache can lead to other potentially serious health problems. But most importantly, a patient experiencing tooth pain has a dramatically reduced quality of life until the problem is addressed.
Golden Age offers a 24/7 dental emergency hotline to ensure none of our patients are deprived the attention and care they require. We will typically schedule emergency visits within 1 day, and often even the same day.
The best care for a healthy mouth is daily care, and Golden Age helps staff take ownership with a commitment to ongoing education. The annual in-services we provide are practical, hands-on, and grounded in the essentials of anatomy and medicine. It’s a far cry from the typical outdated video on tooth brushing!
As a value-added service to the facilities we partner with, Golden Age does its own regular audits of the rosters in each facility we visit. Our Dental Service Report ensures that every resident is receiving the care they need and deserve, and no one is missed. The end result? Residents get better care, and facilities stay compliant and avoid fines.
Reporting And Documentation Support
Every time we visit a facility, we document informative, compliant records of our visit and the patient’s health chart. We also send a summary of this information to social services so that their records are up-to-date and aligned. Golden Age is so spotless with paperwork, we’ve become a respected name when it comes to state audits.
