To support its work, the ECDSC has an Executive Sub-Committee consisting of the Chair, Vice Chair, and four members elected from and by the ECDSC.

Our priorities 

  • Fighting for better pay and terms and conditions for CDS dentists to improve the recruitment and retention of the workforce
  • Defining the CDS workforce as distinct from the General Dental Services (GDS) and a valuable primary care service with vital, specialised skills necessary for treating some of the most vulnerable members of society
  • Representing the interests of CDS dentists throughout the GDS dental system reform process
  • Raising awareness of post-pandemic General Anaesthetic waiting lists for dental treatment and working with stakeholders to find solutions
  • Promoting a career in the CDS as valuable and rewarding.
