The provision for “Local Dental Committees” (LDCs) exists within the NHS Act 2006 (amended by the NHS Act 2012).
Local Dental Committees (LDCs) comprise elected dentists from the area for which they are formed (e.g. Devon). The elected dentists make up the committee, which represents dentists practising in primary care in the area for which the LDC is formed. If you are unsure about whether you are eligible to stand for election to the Devon LDC, you can contact us.
LDCs exist to represent dentists to the NHS and other related organisations. LDCs usually have a pastoral function for the local professional community, providing support, advice and representation for individual practitioners where required. You can find out more about the support we offer on our Advice and support pages.
