​PHE survey of adults attending dental practices: please take part

27 February 2018

Dental practices are encouraged to take part in a Public Health England dental practice-based survey of adult oral health status and need in England.

Alongside the FGDP (UK), NHS England and other agencies, we have been involved in the planning process of this survey, supporting Public Health England.

PHE has contacted a sample of dental practices, to ask if they would like to host the survey, and we are encouraging you to take part, as this will help inform local commissioning decisions and ensure the effective targeting of resources.

PHE researchers will come into your practice and use an empty surgery, to examine patients, so they can build a picture of adults’ oral health across England. See more information about the aims of survey here.

Tackling oral health inequalities

We are campaigning on the issues of oral health inequalities and dental contract reform.

If you'd like to be kept informed of developments, please ensure your details are up to date on your MyBDA record and tick the box to sign up to our regular enewsletter.
