Apple Tree Dental held a groundbreaking celebration on January 29, 2015, at the site of the future San Mateo Center for Dental Health located at 430 North El Camino Real in San Mateo, California.
The San Mateo Center is much more than just a dental clinic and is Apple Tree’s first program in California. The San Mateo Center is designed to make services available for everyone, including children, adults, and elders. The San Mateo Center will house the region’s first Care Coordination Center, facilitating the on-site delivery of dental care at dozens of community sites, such as Head Start centers, group homes, and nursing facilities, and expanding access to care for people of all ages. Dr. Dick Gregory, a local leader with expertise in geriatric dentistry, is the the San Mateo Center’s Director.
