Dr. Arash Hakhamian’s dental app delivers care at a hospital room, home — even poolside #IE40Under40

Searching for a more relaxed atmosphere for oral health care with vetted expert dentists? Dentulu offers fully mobile dental units that can pop up in any standard 10 by 10 room, where an electrical outlet is the only necessity for the Dentulu team. This includes the living room, bedroom, hospital room, senior living center, or even poolside (shown at top).

“I have been performing mobile dental services for the rich and famous here in Beverly Hills for almost a decade and an excited about providing access to this incredible service for all Americans alike,” said Dr. Arash Hakhamian, founder and CEO of Dentulu.

Meet the founder, CEO of Dentulu

Dr. Arash Hakhamian, chosen as one of the 2018 Incisal Edge 40 Under 40 award winners, is the founder and CEO of Dentulu, Dentistry on Demand, platform. According to Dr. Hakhamian, Dentulu is the world’s first and only on demand mobile app that allows patients anywhere in the United States to connect to a dentist, on demand and from the comfort of their own home, within a few minutes. Dentulu’s multiple features allow for increased access to dentists both virtually and through mobile dentists who are able to provide dental care in the comfort of the patient’s home or workplace.

“My hope and dream for the future of dentistry is to bring our profession up to date with the technological advancements we currently see in other sectors. The Uberization of different sectors has helped give the user more control of their experience and Dentistry has unfortunately lagged behind other fields.

The public can now schedule doctors, haircuts, massages and a myriad of other services to their home and there is no reason basic dental services should not be available as well.”

Need to connect with a licensed dentist within 5 minutes?

With the help of recent legislation that has passed by Congress and the American Dental Association, Dentulu is now able to bridge the access to dental care for millions of Americans through the use of mobile and teledentistry.

“Patients who are having an emergency no longer have to take a trip to the Urgent Care or Emergency Department to address their concerns, only to wait for hours and sometimes walk away with opioids and recommendations to find a dentist. Patients can now simply download the Dentulu app and connect with a licensed dentist within five minutes and receive immediate care through a real time virtual consultation and have a prescription sent to a pharmacy and simultaneously connect with a dentist that can see them in his or her dental office.”

This service is not only for emergencies. Patients who are interested in a consultation or a second opinion on various treatments such as cosmetic dentistry, braces, implants or wisdom teeth can also schedule a virtual consultation from the comfort of their own home with a trained dental expert for less than $10. The patient simply picks the type of dental professional they want to consult with on the Dentulu Network and can schedule a 10 minute consultation to meet and doctor and have all of their questions answered before making a trip to the dental office.

Dentulu also provides mobile dental services to almost any location of the patients choosing. Busy patients along with elderly or disabled patients no longer have to waste hours of time and deal with the logistic nightmares of sitting in traffic or the waiting room for simple checkups and cleanings. By downloading the Dentulu application, patients are able to schedule basic cleanings, whitenings, Invisalign and other basic dental services to their home or workplace, saving them time and money, with or without the use of dental insurance.

Receive care at home, a hospital room, senior living center … even poolside

Dentulu offers fully mobile dental units that can pop up in any standard 10 by 10 room, including the living room (shown above), bedroom, hospital room, senior living center, or even poolside where an electrical outlet is the only necessity for the Dentulu team. This service has been proven to save patients time and also provide a comfortable and relaxed environment where the patient and family can get individualized and person attention with vetted expert dentists in their area.

“I have helped implement the protocols for proper infection control and logistics in providing mobile dental care for various organizations including NGO’s in third world countries, where access to dental care is limited.”

According to Dr. Hakhamian, Dentulu also provides numerous features including: Virtual Reality (VR) glasses, aromatherapy, and audio/visual software that patients can utilize to improve the user experience. By changing the environment of the dental services, Dentulu provides an opportunity to reduce the anxiety and fear of the dental office and enhances the patients comfort during dental procedures.
