This report outlines the view of respondents who took part in the Dental survey which Healthwatch Barking and Dagenham carried out.
Throughout September, Healthwatch Barking and Dagenham 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
