The data published here is for hospital episodes among children (aged 0 to 19 years) for extraction of one or more primary or permanent teeth. Data is presented for 2011/12 to 2015/16 by former primary care trust (for data up to 12/13) and local authority of child’s residence and grouped by region. Data were extracted from the Hospital Episode Statistics (HES) dataset which records inpatient care from National Health Service (NHS) hospitals across England.
For the 14/15 and 15/16 data, this has been further split into extractions for both caries and non-caries reasons. Details about this and all other query methodologies can be found on the ‘Introduction’ sheet within the file.
