GP patient survey dental statistics

In the most recent period (July to September 2012), 1.4 million adults were asked about access to NHS dentistry in the previous two years.

Participants were asked if they had tried to obtain an appointment with an NHS dentist and what their overall experience was of NHS dentistry. Patients who hadn’t tried to obtain an NHS dentist in the previous two years were asked to select the main reason why they hadn’t tried.


The results from the survey responses are presented here at national (England), strategic health authority (SHA) and primary care trust (PCT) level.
