Introduction

Dr. David Baldridge has been providing dermatologic care to the Great Falls community for more than 35 years. Some of his patients include members of families from four separate generations. Dr. Baldridge considers caring for these patients to be a unique privilege. By joining Benefis, he plans to focus more on what he loves most – patient care.

"Patients always come first," says Dr. Baldridge. "Addressing their fears, concerns, and anxiety is just as important as what I do medically." He adds, "I am fortunate that my staff has the same compassion for patients that I do."

Dr. Baldridge provides dermatologic care for all ages, from newborn and up. He performs skin surgery, including skin cancer surgery, and treats a variety of skin conditions, including chronic ones, for which he says there are many treatment options that can significantly improve a patient's quality of life.

He advises that sun protection is one of the best ways to care for our skin, emphasizing that "sun protective clothing is more effective than sunscreen."

With the belief that Great Falls is a hidden treasure, Dr. Baldridge takes advantage of living both near the mountains and the plains. He enjoys hiking, backpacking, fishing, upland bird hunting, and bird dog training.
