Making an impact

CDS brings dental care to people who cannot be treated in general dental practice; our patients have learning disabilities, mental health issues or severe anxiety, or be in situations or locations that traditional dental services cannot reach. Our social aim is to improve oral health across all communities.

We also work in schools and other community settings raising awareness of good oral health care and how this impacts on the wider health of the population.

Working as one team, our purpose is to really focus our resources and energy on serving people with specialist or vulnerable dental need.

We are proud of the care we bring to our patients and the expertise of our teams. We often receive feedback from our patients about the difference we have made.
