Patients are referred to E.N.D.S. by their participating dental care organization. Once the E.N.D.S. office receives the referral by mail or fax, the patient or the patient’s care provider will be contacted to schedule a mobile dentistry visit.
E.N.D.S. primarily provides services to Oregon Health Plan members who are non-ambulatory or who are unable to obtain dental care in an office setting. E.N.D.S.accepts Capitol Dental, Managed Dental Care of Oregon, CareOregon Dental, and Willamette Dental enrollees as patients.
Oregon Health Plan (OHP) members must be referred to E.N.D.S. by their participating dental care organization. To initiate a referral, patients or care providers must call the phone number on the right side of the patient’s Division of Medical Assistance Program card to speak with a customer service representative who will determine whether a referral to E.N.D.S. is appropriate. Previously referred patients or their care providers, and non-OHP patients may contact E.N.D.S. directly.
Mobile and hospital-based dentistry services are provided to patients who are enrolled with one of the following dental care organizations: Capitol Dental Care, Managed Dental Care of Oregon, CareOregon Dental, and Willamette Dental.
E.N.D.S. is able to see patients without dental insurance only if they qualify for our program and are willing to pay privately. Please contact the E.N.D.S. administrative office for additional information.
E.N.D.S. provides services to Oregon Health Plan clients who are non-ambulatory or who have severe developmental disability or mental impairment. Patients must be unable to obtain dental care in an office setting, and without mobile dental services would otherwise have no access to dental care.
E.N.D.S. does not visit private homes unless there are unique circumstances. Exceptions will be made on a case-by-case basis. Please contact the E.N.D.S. administrative office for additional information.
E.N.D.S. patients are seen in a hospital based setting if a patient is unable to receive the proper treatment in the home or facility, or if the amount of dental work is so extensive that general anesthesia in a hospital setting is required.
All hospitals require the patient to arrive an hour and half before the surgery time, and the surgery itself typically lasts about two hours. Recovery time varies from patient to patient. From arrival to departure, the process of hospital based dentistry takes 5-6 hours on average.
E.N.D.S. dentists typically do not prescribe sedatives before surgery. Please contact the patient’s primary care physician or Pre-Admissions at the appropriate hospital for more information.
