Surrey Local Dental Committee

Surrey LDC consists of an elected group of experienced practitioners giving advice from dentists in primary care to our colleagues at NHS England. We also liaise with dental departments in secondary care. Your LDC provides a dental perspective to all the NHS bodies; including guidance for commissioning, current practice and disciplinary matters in an effort to smooth the working interface between GDP’s and NHS England.

Our website is continually updated with advice, guidance, referral information and ‘must have’ GDP resources.

The most up to date articles posted on our site are listed > on the right hand side of the homepage. These are relevant articles and notifications, some from NHS England via the mail accounts and may require your attention, some from other dental bodies (GDC CQC BDA etc.) and some written by ourselves to help you in your practice. All previous articles are stored under LATEST/News Archive.

Mandatory completions or tasks will also be posted on the right of the homepage during the year giving you time to take action where necessary.

From time to time useful and practical contributions will be posted under RESOURCES/Resources. The library here is growing monthly. These articles have proven their worth over time, especially for those of us in general practice. The REFERRALS and REPORTING page is being updated and will set out all the referral pathways for Surrey GDP’s. Safeguarding and other reporting issues are also covered under this section.

Our most important role is to support Surrey GDPs with advice and pastoral help. Increasing governance from the current regulatory bodies leave some of us feeling overwhelmed. We are here to support our colleagues.
