Local Dental Committee is a statutory body representing all
primary care dental practitioners in their Primary Care Trust area of the NHS

As the local representative committee for dental practitioners, the LDC has the statutory right to be consulted by the relevant Primary Care Trust and Strategic Health Authority on issues relating to the dental profession particularly on the provision of Dental Services.

The LDC is an independent body paid for by primary care dentists themselves via a levy collected from dentists in the area.

The function of Derbyshire County Local Dental Committee is:

  • To represent the interests of all primary care dental practitioners
  • To promote and support the NHS interests of eligible practitioners and liaise with the Derbyshire County PCT in respect of those interests.
  • To promote and support the interests of patients and liaise with Derbyshire County PCT as appropriate.

We are committed to be a source of support, advice and reference for all dentists in Derbyshire. All our committee are listed on this website and we do our best to be available should you need to contact any of us.
