​Public Health England new survey of adults attending general dental practice

12 July 2017

Public Health England plans to carry out a voluntary dental practice-based survey of adult oral health status and need in England from October 2017.

Data from the survey will be used to inform local commissioning decisions and ensure effective targeting of resources.

PHE has provided a general information document and a short briefing for dentists on the new survey.

Participating practices will include purely NHS, private and mixed practices. Information on how to take part will be available on PHE's website in the autumn.
