About us

Welcome to CDS CIC

We are a referral only dental service, bringing dental care to people who cannot be treated in general dental practice; our patients typically have learning disabilities, mental health issues or severe anxiety. They may be in situations or locations that traditional dental services cannot reach such as homelessness centres or secure settings. We are also contracted to provide oral health improvement and epidemiology programmes.

Our social purpose is to enable our communities to enjoy a better quality of life by providing the oral health care they need to thrive.

The Dental team was stupendous in every possible way. It was all beyond my expectations, the care and professionalism you showed us is forever in our hearts and has changed my brother’s life for the better.
