Senior Dental Care was founded by Jacquie Biggar, a passionate oral health professional who strongly believes in primary health care. Teaming up with Dr Jeffrey Agius a Dentist with over 25 years’ experience in the industry, a plan was created to deliver preventative dental services to those who need it most. Our vision is to provide seniors living at home and residents in aged care facilities with the treatment, care, and access to knowledge they need to maintain a healthy mouth.
Jacquie and Dr Jeff conducted a pilot study together at an aged care facility in Sydney and experienced firsthand the need for professional dental care within this demographic.
We both agree that many of the problems we recorded are preventable and reversible in their early stages, and this highlighted the need for preventative dental treatment and preventative dental care plans for these people. These findings are parallel with the literature.
With this in mind, Senior Dental Care collaborated with both dental and aged care professionals to tailor a service that is accessible and affordable for the elderly. We understand that it can be challenging to meet an individual’s tailored medical needs when in full time care or when independence is reduced, and this is why we are a mobile clinic.
The Senior Dental Care family is passionate about what they do and pride themselves on building long term relationships with their patients and aged care facilities.
