In the 2019 survey, over 400 NHS and private dentists took part, answering questions on:
- NHS dentistry and the reformed contract
- Dentistry and the GDC
- Happiness levels in NHS and private dentistry
- The mental health of dental professionals.
In each section, large numbers of respondents chose to leave comments expressing how they felt in more detail . A representative sample of these have been included in the report alongside insight from key opinion leaders such as Eddie Crouch, John Renshaw and Simon Thackeray.
