The Lincolnshire Special Care Dental Service is for patients that are resident, including homeless and socially excluded groups within the county of Lincolnshire, incorporating the Clinical Commissioning areas of South Lincolnshire, Lincolnshire East, Lincolnshire West and Southwest Lincolnshire.
The Special Care Dental Service in Lincolnshire provides a service for those whose oral care needs cannot be met through other NHS primary dental contracts owing to their additional needs. Many children and adults with additional needs can be treated within the General Dental Service, however, if a patients particular needs mean that if specialist skills, equipment or facilities are required GDPs may refer to CDS-CIC for an assessment.
Covid 19 restrictions have been lifted, however all the Health Centres and Hospitals in Lincolnshire do request that you wear a face mask ( unless exempt ) while you are within the communal areas of the buildings.
The Lincolnshire service has seven clinics across the county offering services such as behavioural management, inhalation sedation, intravenous sedation, bariatric services, hoisting and wheelchair tipper.
We sometimes provide treatment using general anaesthesia for patients referred into our services. We will discuss if this is appropriate and the options available with you during an appointment.
Our Boston, North Hykeham and Skegness clinics have the facilities to accommodate bariatric patients referred into our service, if you would like to discuss this in more detail and whether this might be something you require, please call central booking on 0333 2076630”.
