Oxfordshire Community Dental Service (OCDS)

Oxfordshire Community Dental Service (OCDS)

Special care dentistry

We provide specialised dental care to a wide range of both children and adult patients, who are unable to receive care from a general dental practitioner, but do not necessarily need to be seen in a hospital.

You need to be referred to OCDS and we cater for a range of people with medical conditions, learning or physical disabilities, anxiety or phobia, mental health issues and those who require special care dentistry, including orthodontics.

See our top tips for helping children visit the dentist, our dental passport, how to prepare plus much more advice and resources to cater for all needs. And find out how to access us here
