National Dental Health Report 2015
Tuesday 6th September 2016, posted in News Archive
We spoke to over 2,000 adults in the UK to see how they feel about dentistry in 2015.
The Oasis Dental Care National Dental Health Report examines perceptions of dentistry in the UK - not in respect of Oasis Dental Care practices but in relation to all dental care practices across the UK, both NHS and private. This enables us to present a clear picture of the state of UK dentistry in 2015, with insights straight from the people who matter - the patients.
Key findings of the National Dental Health Report include:
- 37% of UK adults who have a dentist say they have had the same dentist for longer than ten years
- 38% of UK adults have carried out DIY dentistry and of those a quarter high treatment costs as a motivator saying it was cheaper to do it themselves
- 45-54 year olds use emergency appointments the most
- Of those UK adults who have been to a dentist, the fear of needing further work is what scares people the most
