2008 Scottish Health Survey – Dental Data

The 1995, 1998 and 2003 Scottish Health Surveys (SHeS)  included similar questions about the number of natural teeth people have, their brushing frequency, whether they use fluoride toothpaste and the frequency of their dental check-ups. In 2008 a wider set of questions were introduced to better meet the Scottish Government’s information needs in relation to adult dental health.
