What can SENIOR SMILE do for you?
SENIOR smile dental care is a blessing for the elderly. My mother had to enter a rehab facility for short term care after being in the hospital for a month. The rehab facility lost her dentures and SENIOR smile went to the facility and handled all of the needed care to replace my mother’s dentures as fast as possible. Dr. Thapar-Dua has done everything possible to fit us in her schedule for fittings once my mother left the rehab facility to complete the final fitting. We will need adjustments in the future and I’m sure the doctor will do her best to make the dentures as comfortable as possible for my mother.
SENIOR smile, Dr. Thapar-Dua and her amazing staff (particularly Vanessa), are simply wonderful. They quickly responded to my call for an emergency visit for my 101 year old bedridden Mom (who is in hospice care ). At Mom’s apartment, Dr. Thapar-Dua attended to my Mom’s toothache and spent time explaining the complex issues involved in her treatment. Vanessa thoroughly explained the necessary post-operative care. I am so pleased that my Mom was able to receive prompt and competent care. After 2 weeks of suffering intense pain, Mom finally is feeling better! I plan to have SENIOR smile return to clean and check Mom’s teeth in the near future. I highly recommend SENIOR smile.
After dealing previously with physical and mental strain on both my mother and I just to take her to the dentist and other doctors, It was a BLESSING AND RELIEF on my father and me to be able to have SENIOR smile come to my father’s memory care facility to take care of his dental needs and cleaning. SENIOR smile was very accommodating to my father’s physical and mental situation every time when they administered treatment to him. He never complained about having his teeth cleaned. I was ALWAYS notified a week before by the SENIOR smile office staff of their upcoming visits to my father’s facility asking if I wished for him to be seen and if there were concerns dentally that they would need to check out with him. They were VERY ACCOMMODATING with the billing process and ALWAYS called me if there was a dental problem/condition they discovered during their visit BEFORE they did any work.
I have been extremely happy with the excellent dental care Dr. Chaudhary has provided my loved one at her assisted living facility the past 2+ years. My loved one has dementia and so needs special attention, gentleness, and compassion, and Dr. Chaudhary and her staff have more than met the challenge.
Thank you so much for taking such excellent care of my mother and my aunt. Now that it is difficult for both of them to go out to medical appointments, having someone go to them is absolutely crucial for their continuing care needs. As is common with older folks, they are both very sensitive to how people interact with them and do not always remember who they have met before, so the understanding and caring attitude the SENIOR smile team exhibits every time they visit also helps a great deal. It is a load off of my mind to know that they are both in such good hands. Thank you!
