Please note the referral protocols for oral surgery and referral forms for minor oral surgery for registered patients have now been updated. The minor oral surgery referral system is being piloted across Dorset, with services now available from primary care providers. An evaluation will be undertaken and the LDC welcome your comments to inform this.
The study/referral criteria and referral forms have been developed and can be downloaded from the links below.
There is now one telephone number for all three referral centres, with options to select for each service as follows:-
Telephone Number: 0300 300 2014
Option 1 – Minor Oral Surgery Referral Centre
Option 2 – Orthodontic Referral Centre
Option 3 – Special Care Dental Service Referral Centre
There is a message on the old numbers asking callers to redial the new number. All paperwork will be amended accordingly.
Please see the link below for the newest version of the Referral Matrix
Urgent Dental Care can be accessed out of hours at 111
