Dental Statistics - Registration and Participation
"Improving the oral and dental health of the Scottish population is the main aim of all dental services. Information collection, analysis and dissemination informs and monitors the actions of dental services and identifies the most successful treatments and programmes. Accurate information is essential to the operational planning and management of health services in Scotland. Like any other part of the National Health Service, the quality of dental information collected is vitally important for patient care." (From "Dentistry in the New Millennium", Scottish Executive, 2000)
Much of ISD's dental informatics business is now guided by the 2005 Action Plan for Improving Oral Health and Modernising NHS Dental Services and Better Health, Better Care from 2007.
You can find information on NHS dental care and services and the dental health of the people of Scotland on these pages.
