UDA value checker
Compare your practice to local and national averages in England with our UDA value checking tool.
The purpose of the UDA value checker
Getting to grips with the financial details of the NHS dental contract in England can be a challenging task, even for those who have been working in this system since 2006. This can make it difficult to make the best business and personal decisions with all the relevant information to hand.
That's why we have analysed data from the NHS Business Services Authority to provide an estimated UDA value for all NHS contracts in England so that you can compare your practice or the practice where you work to the local and national averages.
Please note that the checker is only available to our members - please sign in to be able to download it.

About our estimations
We have estimated UDA values by dividing the contract’s value by its contracted UDAs. While we have taken a number of steps in analysing the data to attempt to ensure that this is as accurate as possible, it is possible that some of the contracts included contain payments not based on UDAs and this is, in part, why the UDA value can only be an estimate.
Please note that the UDA value tracker does not give the full picture about practice finances, as this information is only based on the NHS payments to practices. It doesn't show the many financial pressures on each practice and the costs involved in delivering dentistry, which will vary from practice-to-practice.

If you have any further questions about your contract or the data used, please contact your usual payments contact for queries in the first instance.
