What is an LDC?

A Local Dental Committee (LDC) is a locally constituted and NHS recognised group of NHS dentists and dentist NHS providers, tasked with the representation of their peers in the negotiation and planning of locally commissioned NHS primary care dental services. Regulations may require the NHS to undertake formal consultation with its respective LDC or LDCs, or to include LDC representatives on relevant NHS boards and panels.
