This information is sourced from the Dental Services Division (DSD) of the NHS Business Services Authority (BSA).
This report has been produced by The Information Centre for health and social care (IC). A joint working group with representation from the IC, the Department of Health (DH), the Doctors' and Dentists' Review Body (DDRB) secretariat and the Dental Services Division (DSD) was consulted on this study and the content of the report.
