The LDC acts as a point of contact for practitioners in difficulty. If you are a dentist and are struggling in your personal or professional life, we can offer you help either directly, through the LDC organised Practitioner Advice and Support Scheme (PASS), or through our other partner organisations below.
The Dentists’ Health Support Programme offers confidential support to dentists suffering with addiction or mental health related problems.
The BDA Benevolent Fund offers confidential support to all UK registered dentists in financial difficulty.
Please feel free to contact the LDC directly about any issues about which you would like some advice or support. The LDC is often able to help with general queries about NHS contracts, NHS commissioning, clinical standards and regulation, as well as a host of other issues that are of interest to dentists and their patients in Devon.
