Here are 5 common misconceptions about mobile dentistry that Inland Empire families often have, and the truth behind those myths.
1. In Home Dental Care Can Only Occur in My Home
Because of the level of dental care, many Inland Empire residents mistakenly believe that mobile dentists can only operate in a private home. That’s simply not true! In Motion Dentists’ dentists frequently visit patients in nursing home settings to provide much needed dental care, or even in a professional office room or hotel rooms in the case of busy professionals traveling for work and suddenly having a dental emergency that needs immediate attention.
2. Mobile Dentists Can’t Provide Anesthetic or Sedation Options
When the dentists at In Motion Dentists comes to your home, hotel room, or care facility, they brings an entire dental office to you. This includes anesthetics and sedation options if you desire them for yourself or your loved one who is being treated. There’s no need to sacrifice comfort when choosing in home dental care. In fact, our previous patients often report that their visits are the most comfortable they’ve ever felt sitting in a dentist’s chair.
3. My Home Doesn’t Have Enough Room to Set Up a Makeshift Dental Office In It

In fact, In Motion Dentists often does second opinions and find that their fees are less expensive than traditional dental office fees. Also, In Motion Dentists’ main group of patients are those with special needs who either can’t leave home, live in a care facility, or are otherwise uncomfortable or ineligible to be seen in a dentist’s office.
