General Dental Services (GDS) Reform Programme for Wales

The General Dental Services (GDS) Reform Programme commenced in September 2017.  After a pause during the COVID-19 pandemic it restarted in April 2022, with engagement with key stakeholders especially Health Boards and dental services. 

The vision for the GDS Reform Programme is to 'provide good access to safe, high quality dental care, responsive to the needs of the population, promoting a preventative approach delivered locally by a highly skilled dental team using skill mix to ensure ongoing service sustainability'.

The GDS Reform Programme is developing, in partnership with the Welsh Government, within the context described in the following key strategic documents.
