Dr. Alisa Kauffman, a New York City dentist specializing in geriatric house call dentistry, is offering 35 years of professional experience and her unique proprietary process in the new book, “How to Become a House Call Dentist.” This comprehensive guide will reveal how dentists at every level of their career can get into this lucrative niche and help to ensure that the country’s aging population is receiving quality care regardless of any physical or mental diagnoses. 

NEW YORK, N.Y. — December 21, 2019 — Dr. Alisa Kauffman’s new book, “How to Become a House Call Dentist,” is a comprehensive guide to developing your own practice in the lucrative yet often overlooked niche of geriatric house call dentistry. 

With 35 years of experience as a practicing geriatric dentist in New York City and a Top 25 Dentist in the United States, Dr. Kauffman is sharing her expertise about how to become a travelling dentist to ensure the country’s aging population is receiving quality care. “How to Become a House Call Dentist” is a guidebook for recent graduates interested in starting their own business, practicing dentists looking for additional income or those who are nearing retirement.

“I make house calls to elderly patients who are homebound due to physical ailments such as Parkinson’s Disease or have been diagnosed with dementia or Alzheimer’s,” said Dr. Kauffman. “Over the course of my career, I’ve developed methods for treating geriatric patients with these types of challenging diagnoses and my book will share what I’ve learned.”

The book contains Dr. Kauffman’s proprietary processes; a list of medical supplies needed; tips on marketing and obtaining referrals; best practices on dealing with medical records, billing, and emergencies; and important forms and procedures needed to establish your new practice.

Dentistry for elderly patients who cannot leave their home is challenging due to the technical nature of the services, explained Dr. Kaufmann, and as a result, the aging population is not receiving the level of care younger and middle-aged patients are receiving at traditional practices. “After reading my book you’ll not only be able to make a world of difference but earn a comfortable living doing so. There are few jobs that are as spiritually and monetarily rewarding as this,” she said. 

Understanding how difficult it can be for family, friends or professionals caring for homebound patients, Dr. Kauffman currently offers a Free Caregivers Manual for Geriatric Dentistry on her website, an introductory manual with tips on brushing, dry mouth, ulcers, teeth grinding and more. 

Dr. Kauffman’s work has been profiled by The New York Times, the Chicago Tribune, The Washington Post, The Pennsylvania Gazette and ABC News, she’s also widely known for her lectures and mentoring program at the University of Pennsylvania.
