Referring patients to our services

Our community dental services are referral only and accept referrals from General Dental Practitioners to support with the care of their patients.  In some areas, we are able to consider referrals from other health care professionals. The criteria for referrals is commissioned differently in each area where we provide care.

If you are based in an area covered by CDS CIC and looking to refer patients, please see individual area pages for information on criteria and our referral form.

If you need further help around our referral process, please call our local area offices.

‘Everything from the booking process through to the procedure and after care were excellent.’
