​Scotland Oral Health Improvement Plan: have your say

1 March 2018

BDA Scotland is currently seeking the views of dentists on the Scottish Government’s recently published Oral Health Improvement Plan (OHIP)

We are inviting general dental practitioners and dentists working in the hospital dental services or in the public dental services in Scotland to take part in the survey.

This represents the biggest change to NHS dentistry in Scotland since the establishment of the NHS in 1948. The OHIP is an ambitious document with some positives, but we believe there are still many challenges, especially for those working in general practice.

Your views will help us in our ongoing discussions with Scottish Government on the proposed changes to the dentistry.

How do I respond?

The survey will take approximately 20-30 minutes to complete the whole survey, which we would be grateful if you have time to do, but from the link below, there is also a shorter version of the survey, which will take around five minutes to complete, covering some of main key points raised by the proposals only.


What will you do with the results?

The information gathered from the survey will be used to inform on-going discussions that BDA Scotland has with the Scottish Government about proposed changes to dentistry in Scotland. 

The survey will be taken anonymously, we will not be able to identify individuals from their responses and any data you give will be kept confidential.
