Welcome to Worcestershire LDC
Our aim is to create a source of information for all those practising Dentistry in Worcestershire. It is vital for Worcestershire Dentists to be aware of the economic, regulatory and political changes that will affect our practices and our patients.
We are committed to be a source of support, advice and reference for member dentists in Worcestershire. We have an important role to play in working with the PCT to help develop dental services for the area.
As a Local Dental Committee we recognise that communication between primary care dentists and both the existing PCT and LDC needs improving. As a result we have developed this website which we hope will ensure that primary care dentists in Worcestershire will have access to up to date information affecting their working practice.
In order to access this website, and receive essential updates, simply register and you will be sent your individual login and password.

This is free to Worcestershire LDC members and will be an essential resource in keeping up to date with:

I would urge you to register on this site as soon as possible. Whether you are a practice owner, associate or salaried dentist, I am confident that you will find this an invaluable resource over the next few years.
