Welcome to the Hertfordshire
Local Dental Committee website

This site provides information about dentistry across the county and the workings of the LDC.

Local Dental Committees in England were established in 1948, and  became statutory bodies under the NHS Act of 1977 and are included in the NHS Act 2006.  Primary Care Organisations recognise and consult with LDCs on matters of local dental interest ,local commissioning and developments in the provision of NHS dentistry. 

Hertfordshire LDC represents dentists with a General Dental Services Contract (providers or performers) or those on a performers list within the Hertfordshire boundary.

General information on this website is freely available to the public. In addition, Hertfordshire dentists may also access the password-protected area.  If you are a Hertfordshire dentist working as a provider in Hertfordshire you can access the dentists only section, please contact Mike deNooijer.-> see in CONTACT
