General description

This data shows the number of new NHS dental patients treated.

Data collection and calculation

The data is derived from dental activity forms submitted for payment and processed by NHS Business Services Authority Dental Services.

‘New patients’ are those treated with an Assessment of Clinical Oral Risks and Need (ACORN) indicated on the FP17W in the current period, who had not completed a course of Band 1, 2, or 3 treatment in the four years prior to the date of acceptance for the current treatment.

As new patient data is only available from April 2022, the denominator for the percentage calculation includes the number of patients treated in the 12-month period ending 31 March 2023 only.
