Dental Workforce Report 2016

The  2016  dental  workforce  report  is the latest in a series of biennial dental workforce reports that aim to inform workforce planning for dental services in Scotland and has been supported by NHS National Services Scotland and the Health Workforce directorate of the Scottish Government Health and Social Care directorates.

The report examines past trends in the supply of dentists and Dental Care Professionals to inform estimates of the supply of dental services.
Estimates of the demand for dental services are informed by past trends in access to dental services. These past trends are used to inform forecasts of the supply of and demand for dentists and dental services in the future.

These past trends and forecasts indicate  that  the  capacity of the system to deliver dental services to the people of Scotland is greater than ever before and is forecast to increase in the future.
