Public Health England (PHE) has asked us to consult on the format and content of a national Adult Dental Health Survey for England.
The survey will be the latest in the series, first commissioned in 1968, that has explored the oral health of adults in the United Kingdom every ten years. The surveys have interviewed a representative sample of adults in the general population, collecting data via a questionnaire and dental examination carried out in participants’ homes.
The results of past surveys have provided detailed insights into oral health, the prevalence of disease, attitudes and behaviours, and the use of dental services, and have informed policy makers, commissioners and practitioners over the past 60 years. We would like to hear how you have used the survey in the past, what elements you feel are important to maintain in future, and any suggestions you may have for innovations in content and methods.
The closing date for responses to this consultation is 9am on Friday 27 March 2020.
