Salford LDC

Salford LDC aims to provide a platform and union for dental care professionals within the Salford ward. Since the resignation of its longstanding Chair Jim Hamilton, it has been chaired by Rema Hamad and Sophie Nicholls-Mahmood through the initial lockdown. More recently, the role of Chair has been taken on by Saara Sabir.

Meetings are currently held via Zoom. We also operate a useful WhatsApp group which currently has 50 participants including Associates and Pricipals (both NHS and Private) as well as special care dentists, secondary care dentists and Practice Managers. We are actively looking to increase our members and would welcome anyone who would be interested. The WhatsApp group is a great way to share information, to ask for advice and help and benefit from the wealth of knowledge from the group members.

Lockdown has suspended our face-to-face CPD events, however we are looking to restart a free CPD programme in the new year for our members and are happy for suggestions on what they would benefit from. This is funded by the statutory levy for NHS practitioners.

Saara participates in regular Greater Manchester Federation meetings, Commissioner Liaison meetings and Dental Practice Board Meetings. Discussions are shared with the Salford constituents primary through the WhatsApp Group.

Meet the Officers

Dr Saara Sabir


I have worked as a General Dental Practitioner in Salford since qualifying in 2009 and became a Principal in 2011 working in a busy NHS practice in Lower Broughton. Salford as a city has one of the highest dental needs in the UK, therefore, a prevention based approach has been the foundation of the care delivered at our practice using a RAG approach to dental risk and treatment.

I took over the role of LDC chair in April 2021. I understand that dentistry is every evolving and its important to relay as much information to our colleagues as possible which is why I am keen to grow the participants of the LDC. I am happy to support all of our dental colleagues, please get in touch. The LDC aims to resume it’s programme of CPD events in the new year which will be open to all dental care professionals in the area.
Outside of dentistry I’m a busy mum of three!
