Go! Dental Services was founded on three basic principles:
We keep our teeth later in life:
Advances in dental technology allow more people to keep their teeth through later stages of life. Unlike prior generations that had missing teeth replaced with removable dentures, today's senior population is more likely to have dental implants, bridges, crowns, and cosmetic treatments such as veneers. These treatments require a lifetime of maintenance. The result is a senior population with far more complex dental needs then prior generations.
Oral care has a profound impact on your health:
We believe dignity matters:
Science has shown a direct connection between gum disease and systemic diseases such as diabetes. We also know that those with gum disease are at an increased risk of suffering a heart attack or stroke. It's also been shown that improved oral hygiene amongst senior living populations can reduce hospital admission rates pneumonia.
As our loved one's come to need more assistance in completing even the most routine daily activities, the value of maintaining one's self becomes increasingly important. Continuing the routine of seeing the dentist on a regularly scheduled basis is just another way that we can preserve independence and dignity, while making sure they receive the care they need.
