Community DentalCommunity Dental Service 

The CDHB Community Dental Service provides services to the Children of Canterbury and South Canterbury. Starting with a strong preventative program and working closely with Wellchild providers, pre-schoolers are brought into the service up to the age of 2 years based on need and receive care from our modern purpose built dental facilities based in the communities we serve.

School aged children have access to screening programs in schools through our fleet of mobile assessment vans and if required attend the dental clinic for treatment with their parent/caregiver. Our rural children are not forgotten and have access to the same quality service and equipment in our large mobile treatment vans and smaller country based clinics.

Our large team of dental therapists and assistants work together to provide care, support each other and make the most of the up to date technology (including digital radiography and a fully electronic health record) available to them. The service welcomes new members to the team and ensures each staff member has an appropriate level of support to make sure they have a comprehensive induction to the service enabling them to become a productive and effective member of our team.
