This report is a supplement to the Dental Working Hours (DWH) 2014/15 and 2015/16 Motivation Analysis report. Whereas the original report presents motivation and morale findings for England & Wales combined, this supplement presents high-level results for dentists in Wales alone. For reference and comparative purposes, the results for England & Wales together, which are taken directly from the original report, are also shown. This analysis concentrates primarily on 2015/16 results, although time-series data are provided back to 2012/13.
