As our correctional facilities become more and more crowded, the need for in-house inmate dental care is greater than ever. Yet many correctional facilities do not have a dentist on staff, nor the equipment to provide a reasonable standard of care. DentServ can help by staffing and maintaining your existing dental suite, or by installing our own state-of-the-art equipment in your facility.
With DentServ, correctional facilities can now choose reliable, professional dental care at a cost that fits their budget. DentServ takes care of virtually everything, from staffing and equipment to lab work. And as the largest contract dental provider, we can do it for a lot less than you might have thought. So now you can make the best choice for both your population and your institution.
A CUSTOMIZED PROGRAM THAT’S JUST RIGHT FOR YOUR FACILITY.
No two correctional settings work the same — so DentServ customizes each program to fit the way you are accustomed to operate. In many cases, we will set up and maintain a full suite, complete with all the equipment and supplies needed to perform general dentistry. If you already have a dental suite, we will bring it up to date and assume its regular maintenance.
WE NEVER COMPROMISE QUALITY OF CARE IN ORDER TO SAVE MONEY... BUT OUR CORRECTIONS CLIENTS SAVE PLENTY BY OUTSOURCING THEIR DENTAL CARE TO DENTSERV.
Every dentist, every hygienist, every dental assistant that DentServ sends to treat your inmates, is highly qualified — the very same professionals that we provide to our health clinic and skilled nursing home clients. All are fully credentialed and specialize in working in secure institutional settings. Your significant savings are achieved by our economy of scale and efficiency in scheduling. Because we understand how institutions work, we can virtually guarantee you a plan that works within your budget.
After a new inmate’s incarceration or at any time your facility decides, DentServ can perform a full dental exam, to determine if dental care is required and to recommend a program of preventive maintenance.
For facilities without a dedicated dental suite, DentServ can operate out of one of our custom dental units, with all the equipment and supplies required for a fully functioning clinic.
DentServ provides all on-site general dentistry, including x-rays, fillings, oral hygiene, scaling, denture fabrication, restorations and basic extractions.
Your administration can consult with a dentist 24/7 when an emergency arises. Our QA reps are always available to answer questions about your service — they’re the liaison between the dental staff and prison personnel.
DentServ selects well-established practitioners who are highly vetted, top-quality professionals with all necessary training and licensing. If ever there is a time when your dentist is unavailable, we have back-ups standing by.
When an inmate requires oral surgery, DentServ can arrange treatment with one of the many oral surgeons with whom we have associations, being especially sensitive to your unique security requirements.
Working with our partner lab, DentServ fabricates and repairs dentures properly and quickly, decreasing the number of visits the inmate needs. Each order is traceable from start to finish by your facility’s administration.
DentServ can set up a dental suite at your facility, or maintain the suite you already have. We test all devices and x-ray units to meet specifications and maintain a repair log for each piece of equipment.
All the supplies the dentist needs to provide dental services are delivered securely to your facility. Each item has an SDS sheet and is monitored for expiration dates, rotated as necessary.
