You Said, We Did: Dental

Date Published: 25/03/2021

This report presents the experiences of local people accessing dental services during the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020/21. It is an independent evaluation of the experiences of people using the services in the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham and responses from dental practices during the pandemic. Recommendations for improvements and developments form part of the report.

NHS England Dental Team and Barking & Dagenham CCG were requested to respond to recommendations put forward in the report. After the statutory time period for responses elapsed; neither has responded.

This report highlights the findings from a random one-day consultation held with patients using the maxillofacial service. This consultation was held due to concerns raised by members of the public.

This report outlines the view of respondents who took part in the dental survey.  Our team carried out a number of engagement sessions in various settings, with the local community. We asked children and young people about their experiences of visiting a dental practice.

The main focus was on three areas:

  •  If children and young people have been to the dentist and to find out the reasons if they had not.
  •  Find out the opinions, experiences and views, of children and young people who have used the dentist.
  •  If the dental practice is child friendly
