Annual Dental Survey 2012
Our seventh Annual Dental Survey has examined people's attitudes to dental health. We surveyed 11,785 British adults and found that fewer people are now struggling to find an NHS dentist. However, cost for many is still an issue for many:
• 36% don’t think that visiting the dentist is good value for money
• 54% are worried they won’t be able to afford dental care in the future
A lack of information
We also found that many patients are not given clear information about treatment or dental charges.
• Only 27% have found that during their check-ups their dentist provides them with a written treatment plan that includes charges
• 48% haven’t ever noticed that dental prices are explained by the dentist or clearly displayed in their dental practice.
We also asked whether people are aware of the symptoms and causes of mouth cancer, and whether they have any bad dental habits.
