Some people may think about a severe lack of oral health and picture medieval peasants with blackened smiles and missing canines. They wipe their collective brow, thankful that poor oral health is a thing of the distant past. They may be surprised to find that oral disease is not quite as irrelevant today as many immediately assume. In 2010, oral diseases were reported as highly prevalent to as many as 3.9 million people globally.(1) If 2010 is still a little ancient for you, a 2019 study stated that as many as half of Americans thirty years and older suffer from periodontitis, an advanced inflammatory disease that affects the soft and hard structures that support the teeth.(2)

With the knowledge and quality of dental services available in 2020, how is this even possible? Why are people not attending the dentist? The main reason is time. Taking time off of work, driving for an hour or more, handling insurance discrepancies–all of these things are a deterrent from attending to dental health to the recommended degree.

Jet Dental is changing the scene. Our mobile dental services can assist your employees in maintaining their oral health in the simplest and quickest way possible. By providing our dental services onsite at your office or business, the amount of time lost to travel by your employees is removed entirely. They simply walk down the hall to the nearest conference room (which has recently been transformed into a fully functional dental office) and flash their insurance card. They are in and out in an hour and headed back to work. We deal directly with your organization’s dental insurance provider to make payments quick and straightforward. We can provide full dental services, including cleaning, x-rays, teeth whitening, and more. All you need to do is provide a room 30’x30’ or larger and we take care of the rest.

This process is really that simple. Once we’ve set a time and place with you, we handle all contact with your employees. No playing the middleman for you. We set up appointments, send email reminders, handle payments, everything.

Increase employee health and morale by providing them an easy, simple, and novel way to attend to their oral health. Remove all the hassle of attending the dentist, and let us bring the dentist right to you. Mobile dentists are changing the dental game, and Jet Dental is heading the charge.
