Mobile Dentist's Office Keeping Bay Area Tech Workers' Teeth Clean

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) -- Bay Area tech companies offer perks like free lunches, on site dry cleaning and car washes as incentives to keep up employee productivity, and now they're bringing the dentist to the office.

Studio Dental partners with companies like San Francisco's Tagged by bringing a dental office on wheels to the company's headquarters in San Francisco.

The 250 square foot dental truck is a convenience that employees love. Tagged employee Jeffrey Ouyand was able to see the dentist and be back behind his desk in 45 minutes.  The average time it takes to go see a dentist can be 3 to 4 hours.

Tagged spokeman Steve Sarner said the visiting dental office gives their employees a better work life balance.

Dr. Sara Creighton said the companies they partner with help streamline appointments and insurance processing.  The mobile dental unit has two chairs and can treat over 100 patients a week.   Employees don't pay a dime since their company insurance covers their treatments.

Studio Dental can handle treatments from teeth cleaning, root canals, and even veneers.
