Community Dental Services features in The Parliamentary Review


Community Dental Services CiC has been featured in The Parliamentary Review 2019.  The employee owned social enterprise provides community dental services for people who cannot be treated in a mainstream dental practice, and oral health improvement programmes across eastern and central England.


The Parliamentary Review is a publication that shares and communicates areas of best practice. It consists of a selection of documents that showcase pertinent and sector-specific commentary from organisations, companies, ministers and executives up and down the country.

Former housing minister The Rt Hon David Curry is chief editor.


CDS' a clear social purpose to improve oral health in deprived communities forms the basis of the entry.


The prestigious publication features forewords by Professor Ted Baker, Chief Inspector of Hospitals for CQC, and Prime Minister Theresa May.  The CDS article is introduced by the Rt Hon Lord Blunkett.


Alison Reid, CDS CEO said: 'We are very proud to feature in this year's Parliamentary Review. As a community dental service, 100% employee owned and a social enterprise, our vision is to improve oral health in evermore communities with all our employees working hard to address oral health inequalities in the area they serve.  To feature in a publication such as this will give us so much additional profile, in turn extending our reach further and helping to forge new partnerships that can enhance our work to prevent tooth decay in even the most vulnerable communities.'


The long-time editor of The Review David Curry has expressed his excitement that the upcoming edition is due to be one of the most interesting and insightful yet. "I can say with confidence that there is no other forum in Britain that can successfully combine the thoughts and ideas of such a group of extraordinary organisations and deliver them to the people that need to hear them, whether that be in Westminster or out in the country."


Writing in The Review, the Prime Minister says that "British politics provides ample material for analysis in the pages of The Parliamentary Review."
