Oral Health

Dental HygieneDid you know that your mouth can offer clues about your overall health? Your oral health can be an indicator of other conditions. The health of your mouth, teeth and gums can affect your general health. Wellness on Wheels provides mobile dental hygiene services.  Diane Haun is one of our dental hygienists. She provides oral cancer screenings, oral screenings, gum exams, cleanings, deep scaling to treat gum disease, pit and fissure sealants. Furthermore, she consults with patients about using fluorides to prevent and treat cavities as well as creating individualized oral hygiene plans and instructions.


Mobile Dental Services

Is there a difference between a cleaning that takes place in a dental office versus one that is done at a residence?

The procedure is the same. We can treat you in the comfort and privacy of your own home. We bring all the necessary supplies directly to your side. You don’t have to come into a dentist’s office for these mobile hygiene services. A dentist should perform all other dental care needs, including a recommended yearly exam. We can provide some of these at your home.


How often should I have my teeth cleaned?

It depends upon the person, but you should have your teeth cleaned every three to six months.


What if other dental work is needed?

Our dental team includes a dentist that also provide dental care at your residence.
