Meet the San Francisco Dentist Who Makes House Calls: Dr. Samer Itani
Dr. Samer Itani believes that quality dental care should be accessible to everyone, including populations that are developmentally disabled, mentally compromised, or phobic. Dr. Itani is so committed to providing quality care to this segment of the population that he and his caring staff have developed a unique mobile dentistry program.
House Call Dentistry
His mobile dentistry program enables Dr. Itani to provide dental services to patients who otherwise would not be able to receive dental care. The patients include people with mobility issues, cognitive issues, and phobias. Dr. Itani and his team travel to wherever the patient is, be it their home, hospital, or group living facility.
With the use of portable equipment, Dr. Itani performs a variety of dental procedures during his in-home visits. With the help of a dental assistant or dental hygienist, Dr. Itani provides dental exams, cleanings, fillings, digital x-rays, oral cancer screenings, and even oral surgery.
“Overall, our goal is to break through location, treatment, and economic barriers so every patient gets the care they need,” said Dr. Itani. “One way of doing this is by providing a full spectrum of dental services in our office, as well as in a patient’s home or hospital.”
Sleep and Sedation Dentistry
Dr. Itani is passionate about improving the lives of special needs patients by providing quality “house call dentistry” to those who are not equipped to undergo treatment at a traditional medical or dental facility. These patients include those suffering from Autism, Down Syndrome, Alzheimer's, Parkinson’s disease, or are otherwise medically, emotionally, or developmentally challenged.
Dr. Itani is an expert in the field of sleep and sedation dentistry, including general anesthesia and intravenous sedation. His hospital affiliations allow him to perform dental sedation in a local hospital setting as well as his mobile dental office. He judiciously integrates sleep and sedation dentistry during in-home visits on an as-needed basis.
