Forthcoming Dental Survey

Public Health England and the London Borough of Sutton will shortly be carrying out a Dental Survey of 5 Year Old Children that is undertaken in year one and reception classes across primary schools in England. These surveys are undertaken every two years, and provide data on the dental health of 5 year olds in the borough, which provides information on the state of children’s dental health and supports the development of evidence-based preventive dental programmes.  

Public Health England (London) has developed a short video for schools and parents that explains what happens during the survey. Please click the play button below to watch the video or search ‘PHE School Dental Surveys’ on Youtube.
