General description

The information presented here shows the number of Welsh speaking dentists and the proportion of Welsh speaking dentists per Welsh speakers and the general population.

Data collection and calculation

Data is sourced from the Dental Performers' List as it is considered management information. While the list is maintained, producing statistics from it is not the main purpose of the list and some information may not be updated routinely. It is planned that new data on Welsh speaking dentists will be sourced from the Wales National Workforce Reporting System when it has been fully implemented across dental practices in Wales.

The 2021 census data is used for the Welsh speaking dentists per 10,000 Welsh speaking people measure from 2021-22 onwards.

From 1st April 2019 health service provision for residents of Bridgend local authority moved from Abertawe Bro Morgannwg to Cwm Taf. For more information see the joint statement from Cwm Taf and Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Boards (see weblinks). The health board names have changed with Cwm Taf University Health Board becoming Cwm Taf Morganwg University Health Board and Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board becoming Swansea Bay University Health Board. A link to the statement from the minister for health and social service can be found in the weblinks section.

Statistical quality

Please find this information in the related statistical publication and quality report, as per given weblink.

Statistics presented here are calculated using mid-2020 population estimates from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) as the mid-2021 population estimates are not scheduled to be published until November 2022. As the statistics are based on population estimates from a different time period, they should be treated with caution and considered provisional.
As data from the 2021 Census becomes available, the ONS will also rebase the mid-year estimates for the period mid-2012 to mid-2020 in spring 2023. This means that statistics for the percentage of the population who received NHS dental services in these years will be revised in the next NHS dental statistical release. If the revisions result in large changes to the data, these will be commented on in more detail in the release.
