A Child’s Dental Home
The concept of a child’s dental home originated in healthcare as a pediatric dental base for families to find information to educate themselves and their children about the benefits of proper long term oral healthcare. Dr. Girdlestone’s goal is to have all of his patients meet the healthcare standard for oral healthcare that prevents dental caries, the number one preventable disease in children. The concept of the Dental Home reflects the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry’s (AAPD) clinical guidelines for the proper delivery of oral health care to all children, with a concentration on the very young, infants and toddlers.
