Community Dental Service
We are asking patients, carers, staff and other key stakeholders across Leeds for their views on our plans to offer an improved specialist Community Dental Service in Leeds. The referral-only service currently provides treatment for people whose own dentist can’t meet their particular needs.
At the moment 2,000 patients a year are seen in one of five part-time clinics across the city. We want to offer daily opening in three fully accessible and equipped surgeries and to develop new services like injectable sedation so that fewer patients need to go to hospital for a general anaesthetic before they can have work done on their teeth.
To create this improved and more accessible Community Dental Service, we plan to offer clinics at Yeadon, Middleton and the Reginald Centre in Chapeltown only. Existing clinics at Armley Moor Health Centre and Beeston Community Clinic will be withdrawn because neither site is totally suitable for our patients.
