Over many years Wigan and Bolton LDC have always had a close relationship and in 2018 the two LDC’s joined together again.
Wigan and Bolton LDC provide help and support to over 200 dentists in 75 practices across the area. This makes the LDC one of the largest LDC’s.
During Covid we have held online Zoom meetings every month to update the dental team.
We welcome all members of the dental team to our meetings.
Pre-Covid we held CPD events in Wigan and Bolton covering a wide range of topics. These events are also open to nurses and managers where appropriate, to help the whole team achieve quality and relevant CPD.
We like to think of our LDC is innovative, collaborative and supportive of dental teams.
Over the years we have worked together on a clinical governance scheme and started the first Healthy Living Dentistry Scheme in the country in conjunction with Wigan council.
However, I believe our main role is to be there for dentists and their teams to support them through the challenges of dentistry.
