​Dental Working Patterns Survey - Have your say on motivation and morale

17 January 2020


BDA members across the UK are encouraged to take part in the latest NHS Digital survey of dentists' working patterns, motivation and morale. The findings of the Dental Working Patterns Survey will be considered by the Review Body on Doctors' and Dentists' Remuneration (DDRB) in its deliberations on pay, so this is an opportunity to get your views across. Invitations are being sent out today to all primary care dentists who performed some NHS/Health Service dentistry in 2018/19 and/or 2019/20.


The survey takes only a few minutes to complete and detailed country-specific guidance notes are available. You will need your GDC number for verification purposes. The deadline for completion is Monday 24 February.


Dentists' pay: What we do for you

Each year we use your evidence to fight for fairer pay for associates, practice owners, community dentists (PDS in Scotland), and we call for pay parity for dental clinical academics.

We work across England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, and provide evidence to the Governments on your behalf.
