The NHS Information Centre for health and social care publishes regular information on National Health Service (NHS) primary care dental services. Detailed reports which cover each financial year are supported by quarterly updates.
The data is sourced from the NHS Business Services Authority (NHS BSA) Dental Services Division (DSD) payment systems. This report covers all activity (excluding orthodontic work) carried out in the third quarter of 2007/08; the second year of the new contractual arrangements for NHS dentists. It also shows revised data for the first quarter and second quarter of 2007/08, which accounts for treatments reported late.
