Community Dental Services
Presentation by - Gina
Community Dental Services in Lincolnshire is a specialist dental provider for residents within the County (excluding North and North East Lincolnshire) with significant medical, physical or mental health disabilities, or people with severe dental anxiety. We are a referral only service, and our acceptance criteria and referral form can be found on our website.
They pride themselves on providing high quality care and treatment for children and adults whose dental care cannot be managed by a General Dental Practitioner. They accept referrals from all healthcare providers, however any referrals for dental anxiety reasons must come from a Dentist.
The Oral Health Improvement Team are part of the service co-ordinating, facilitating and supporting a range of evidence-based interventions to reduce oral health inequalities and promote better oral health.
Oral health is everyone’s responsibility; therefore, training is available to health and non- health professionals.
Sessions are tailored to meet the requirements of specific teams e.g. health visiting, teachers and many voluntary sector areas.
