AUSTIN, Texas, June 22, 2022 (Newswire.com)
Enable Dental is pleased to announce the most recent launch of its comprehensive portable, at-home dental care management program with Align Senior Care. Align Senior Care provides tailored care for vulnerable senior populations in 18 counties across Northern and Southern California.
Many members of the Align Senior Care community suffer from cognitive impairment, which makes transportation to and from provider offices challenging or traumatic. Align wanted to find a way to include on-site dental care and found the perfect partnership with Enable Dental. Enable understands the senior population and can distinguish specific geriatric needs from those of the general adult population.
“Enable Dental shares our mission to serve our most vulnerable and under-served populations,” said Sherri Katz, Executive Director of Align Senior Care. “Enable Dental is patient-centered, geriatric-focused, and fully portable. We felt that a provider who understands the population we are serving is critical to achieving improved health outcomes. Their poly-dentistry skill set and state-of-the-art portable dental equipment made the decision to partner very simple.”
“We are thrilled to partner with an innovative, responsive healthcare organization like Align Senior Care,” said Paul Langley, CEO of Enable Dental. “Seniors living in institutional settings often lack access to quality dental care that meets their unique needs. Align’s commitment to providing that access through Enable Dental’s at-home model is key to improving health outcomes and delivering exceptional service for their members.”
This partnership brings professional dental teams into patients’ homes, which distinguishes Align Senior Care from other managed care organizations and demonstrates both Align and Enable’s commitments to serving the senior population in a holistic manner.
