Scottish Adult Oral Health Survey 2017-18

The aim of this project is to conduct a survey of oral health within the 45 years and over age group across Scotland as the first stage in the development of a rolling Scottish Adult Oral Health Survey programme.

After successfully trialling this  method of collecting adult oral health data  we are  hoping to recruit about 400 dentists across Scotland  to record routine dental information on between 25-40  of their patients.

What will you be asked to do?

  • register your interest in participating
  • consent eligible patients aged 45  and older
  • collect data on 25-40  patients
  • submit the data  via a secure website.
  • You can also participate in an optional research audit linked to the survey.
