Optimising Referral to the Community Dental Services (CDS)

An LDC meeting was held on 25th January 2022 at 8pm at The Grasshopper in Poole.

The presentation slides are available here. The presentation and discussion included:

  • Who we are, where we are, and what we do
  • Key criteria and information that the CDS requires to accept a referral
  • What to do when a referral is refused
  • Strategies that may avoid the need to refer patients to the CDS
  • Options for managing the patient in pain, who is waiting for treatment with the CDS


We very much look forward to collaborating with you!
