The Government has announced a commitment to improving oral health services for children and adolescents. New funding is to be made available to District Health Boards to rebuild oral health services and facilities. This investment is expected to lead to improved services and ultimately to improvements in oral health, especially for those who have the greatest need.
These Facility Guidelines assist District Health Boards with the planning details of clinic design. This information will inform District Health Board development of business cases for child and adolescent oral health services.
