Doorstep Healthcare Services
Making Dentistry accessible to all
Doorstep Healthcare Services (DHS) is the oldest provider of mobile dentistry in Minnesota, providing caring and comprehensive oral healthcare services to residents of long-term care, assisted living facilities, Schools and Addiction recovery sites since 1978. At that time a desperate need for dental services for under-served populations existed, so the founder started the first full-service portable dental service in Minnesota. DHS was granted non-profit 501(c)(3) status in 2007.
We recognize the pain from the current pandemic, the isolation effects and challenges from ‘Safer at Home’ measures taken to prevent the spread of COVID-19, and the hardships suffered by so many people throughout the turmoil in the Twin Cities this spring and summer. Our hearts go out to anyone who has been suffering. This summer our team decided to take a hands-on approach to help our neighbors in need. Our first step in bringing a meaningful contribution began by forming a collaborative arrangement with highly skilled healthcare professionals throughout the Twin Cities to provide services beyond oral healthcare. This summer we will begin offering counseling services in the community. As our mission states, we believe that access to quality healthcare is a basic human right of all individuals, regardless of income level or ability to pay. We are currently working with charities and foundations to help us cover the costs involved.
