The dental team within the Strategic Planning and Performance Group oversees all aspects of the delivery of health service dental care and treatment provided by Northern Ireland’s approximately 360 high street dental practices.
This includes the provision of treatment of general dental care alongside specialist care provided within orthodontic and oral surgery practices. Our responsibilities include clinical governance, contract management and service development.
We promote safety and quality within dental practices through routine monitoring and quality assurance arrangements and are committed to working in partnership with our colleagues in the Department of Health, and within practice through the British Dental Association and Local Dental Committees to ensure the effective delivery of health service dentistry to patients.
