Who is an RDHAP?
A Registered Dental Hygienists in Alternative Practice is a licensed dental hygienist with the required expertise and skill to practice dentistry in settings other than a dental office or practice. The motive behind RDHAP was to ensure equal access to dental services for all types of patients (including disabled and homebound) at schools, institutions, assisted living settings, skilled nursing facilities, and private homes.
What are the services provided by an RDHAP?
The services provided by an RDHAP are:
- Oral evaluations (cancer screenings and clinical observation of gum disease and cavities)
- Non-surgical gum disease therapies
- Restorative care
- Flouride treatment
- Cavity and gum disease prevention
What are the advantages of receiving dental care from an RDHAP?
Receiving dental treatment from a licensed RDHAP has its many advantages. It allows easy, comfortable, and convenient access to dental services at the setting where the patient is homebound. Preventive routine checkups help place these patients on the safe side by being able to avoid extensive dental treatment.
Quality at-home dental care services can now be easier to access and experience. Contact May H. Bosco, RDHAP, today.
