Dental Public Health Intelligence Programme
The Public Health England, Dental Public Health Intelligence Programme incorporates all aspects of the former NHS Dental Epidemiology Programme. This programme supports the collection, analysis and dissemination of reliable and robust information on the oral health needs of local populations.
The Public Health England Knowledge and Intelligence Team North West (KITNW), the Dental Public Health Epidemiology Team (DPHET, formerly The Dental Observatory) and key stakeholders, including the British Association for the Study of Community Dentistry (BASCD), are working together to generate intelligence to support high quality commissioning.
If you have any queries or if you require further information about any of the reports or data please email DentalPHIntelligence@phe.gov.uk. One of our analytical team will get back in touch with you as soon as possible to discuss your requirements in more detail.
