COMMERCIAL: Peninsula Community Health has set up a new company to deliver community dental services across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

Services were previously delivered by the social enterprise Peninsula Community Health and although PCH Dental is still part of the PCH family it is now established as a wholly owned subsidiary of PCH with its own board of directors and financial accountability, and officially took over the contract on 1 May 2013.

PCH Dental is contracted with the national Commissioning Board (via the Area Team South) to provide unscheduled care and out of hours emergency dental services, specialist care for children and adults with complex needs, orthodontic treatments and minor oral surgery.
