Dental Patient Access Audit


Harrow Public Health team and partners are undertaking an audit of patient access to dental practices in Harrow. They are keen to identify how children up to 2 years, with a particular focus on children under 1 year, and patients from black and minority ethnic (BME) communities access dental care. In addition they would like to find out how your practice engages and manages new NHS patients.

39.6% of children in Harrow have one or more decayed, missing or filled teeth. Harrow is currently the worse in London. It is essential that parents understand the importance of looking after deciduous teeth from the appearance of their child’s first tooth, in order to prevent dental disease in the future.

It is important that you complete the audit, as the information will be collated into a short report. The report will then be shared with Harrow’s multi-agency Oral Health Steering group, which has representatives from Public Health England, Harrow Healthwatch, Brent and Harrow Local Dental Committee, NHS colleagues and council officers.

Please, fill out the survey and send your completed survey to publichealth@harrow.gov.uk

The deadline is Friday 20th December 2019
