With October being National Small Business Month, we’re excited to announce that Dr. Veronkia Vazquez was featured for her work in an article written by Nevada Today, a news outlet run by Reno’s own university. The article discusses Veronika and her small business in-depth, while telling the story of what got her interested in mobile dentistry in the first place.
Veronika Vazquez, DDS is a local Reno dentist who sought to provide greater dental care to her community. She realized that part of the reason people weren’t seeing their dentist regularly was due to inaccessibility. Whether it’s caused by a lack of safe transportation or an inability to get time away from work, patients started visiting their dentist less and less.
Today, Dr. Vazquez delivers quality mobile dental care to businesses, senior living centers, schools, and more around urban and rural Nevada. Drop In Dental, mobile dentistry, makes keeping up with regular dental appointments simple by bringing the dentist chair directly to you. The mobile dentistry van is equipped with all necessary dental tools and equipment required to perform dental x-rays, cleanings, and exams.

Your oral health should always be a priority, but with September being National Gum Care Month, there’s no better time than now to get your mouth in tip-top shape. With almost half of the American population suffering from some form of gum disease, it’s important that we do what we can to reduce those numbers. Fortunately, with proper gum care and healthy oral habits like daily brushing and flossing along with regular visits to your dentist, gum disease is completely preventable and can be easily managed.
And if you’re like many other Americans who find it difficult to get to the dentist, take a look at mobile dentistry options that come directly to you like those offered by Drop-In Dental. Learn more about National Gum Care Health and proper oral hygiene below.
Gum disease is a serious infection in the gums of your mouth that lead to damage in the surrounding soft tissue and bone that support your teeth. There are varying degrees of gum disease ranging from mild to severe. Gingivitis is considered a mild form of gum disease while periodontitis is a severe form of infection. Gum disease is often caused by bacterial plaque build-up that leads to tooth decay and tooth loss. Let’s take a look at what gum disease looks like.
There are very noticeable signs of gum disease that can be a good indicator that your gum health is suffering. Because gum disease can directly affect other aspects of your health, it’s crucial that you take care of these problems as soon as possible. If you notice any of the following signs or symptoms, you may be in need of mobile dental care right away:
While gum disease is an unfortunate and serious condition, it can be prevented and eradicated through proper oral health practices. Good oral hygiene habits should be developed in early childhood. These habits include brushing your teeth twice daily, flossing daily, using fluoride toothpaste, and avoiding things like smoking. These good habits combined with getting regular dental cleanings can ensure your oral health stays on track.
Staying up-to-date on your dental care can prevent the development of cavities and gum disease before they begin. This is the best way to ensure proper gum health and to maintain a beautiful smile. The best way to prevent major problems is to catch them early on, or better yet—before they even begin. Your Reno dentist can also provide you with the best oral habits and practices to uphold such as flossing and brushing correctly.
Our mission is to inspire and facilitate a healthier community by connecting dentistry to the end-user at their workplace, creating a better everyday life and future for all. Our onsite mobile dentistry services make getting proper dental care convenient and simple. This National Gum Care Month, celebrate with a dental exam and cleaning from the experts at Drop-In Dental.
With the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, employees working at the office may have had to postpone getting routine health exams, including visiting the dentist. Fortunately for Northern Nevadans, there is Drop In Dental, a mobile dentistry clinic providing full-service dental care that happens right outside your office building! We take the hassle out of trying to schedule your next dental appointment, by bringing the convenience of routine cleanings and checkups to employees right outside their office, when they want it.
There are six important components of how we work that you should know:
1- The company’s HR coordinates with Drop-In Dental to schedule the date for an onsite visit
2- The employer sends an email to their staff introducing our service and including a booking link
3- Employees can use the online scheduler to book appointments at their convenience
4- Dental staff arrive at the worksite on the agreed upon day, and provide dental services to employees
5- Existing insurance covers exams, cleanings, and radiograph services
6- Referrals are provided for urgent dental needs that can’t be treated onsite
Drop In Dental improves employee productivity through onsite services providing top quality care, so employees don’t have to commute or take time off for their dental health care. In addition, dental issues are often neglected which can lead to the need for more time off when serious issues arise. When an employer coordinates with Drop In Dental for their employees, this further communicates that the company cares about the wellbeing of their staff, which leads to increased employee retention rates at the company.
According to MarketWatch, there are already many companies such as Google and Yahoo utilizing mobile dental services in their many locations. Tech companies like these partner with health service companies, like Drop In Dental, that offer mobile health vans to corporations. What’s really neat about the mobile dental trucks are that they resemble and have many of the same qualities of a brick and mortar dentistry office, just smaller. They also perform nearly identical services as that of a traditional dentist office, minus some very complicated specialty procedures. While the mobile dentistry practice isn’t new, it is becoming more popular today, especially with patients having less time to leave work and go to an appointment, deal with a longer commute, and the scheduling conflicts that can happen from having to book an appointment at the traditional dentist office. Mobile dental service companies are adding more corporate clients every year, and this practice is gaining traction. More employees are now taking advantage of how much easier than ever it is to see a dentist for regular dental care.
