Our prison services

We provide dental services in the Healthcare Department of Her Majesty’s Prisons (HMP).

Our team of dentists carry out primary dental care for prisoners giving priority to patients in the greatest need, including those in pain or with swellings.

CDS is always keen to ensure the care provided makes a real difference to long term oral health and wellbeing. We measure key outcomes for prisoners to help demonstrate the difference we have made to influence positive behaviour changes that promote oral health and overall well-being.

Currently, we provide dental care in the following prisons:

HMP North Sea Camp
HMP Bure
HMP Wayland
HMP Norwich
HMP Highpoint
HMP Warren Hill
HMP Hollesley Bay
HMP The Mount



Covid 19 update

During the third wave and National lockdown staff absence has caused more significant challenges in some sites. Due to this it is anticipated that on occasions healthcare teams will not be able to deliver the level of service to match the prison stage. For example a severely depleted team may only be able to operate a level 4 or even 5 service in a prison that is operating at stage 3.
