Dentist House Call Service

Dentist House Call Service, founded in 1985, provides on-site dental care for seniors. Seniors can receive on-site dental care at their homes, at assisted living or memory communities and at skilled nursing facilities. On-site services include examinations, high-tech 3D dental x-rays, oral cancer screenings, dental cleanings, tooth colored bonded fillings, as well as partial and full dentures.

Dr. Philip Lepor, director of Dentist House Call Service, is a graduate of UCLA School of Dentistry (1974). He completed a multidisciplinary dental residency at the Palo Alto Veterans Administration Hospital (associated with Stanford University Medical Center, University of California San Francisco School of Dentistry and University of the Pacific School of Dentistry).

Since 1985, Dr. Lepor has been providing dental services at many assisted living and skilled nursing facilities and major acute care hospitals in San Diego County.

His house call referrals come from physicians, dentists, nurses, hospitals, the Alzheimer's Association, the Parkinson's Association, the Arthritis Association, the County Aging and Independent Services, and the San Diego County Public Guardians Office, as well as family members and friends.

It is easy to arrange for a house call or on-site facility dental appointment. A senior, family member, case manager, or nurse can call the office at (858) 780-2533 or e-mail Dr. Lepor at or by clicking here.

Questions about available services and fees can be asked and appointments made. It is possible to arrange appointments so that family members can be present.
