The Oral Health Foundation is concerned about the choices that more patients are making regarding their dental treatment. In recent years, we have seen a rise in direct-to-consumer services like clear aligners purchased online, DIY hacks on social media and dental tourism.

In light of these trends, the Oral Health Foundation has commissioned this survey, as part of the Safe Smiles campaign into safe dentistry,  to understand the types of cases and frequency in which professionals are experiencing them in their practice. The results of this survey will be used as part of the Safe Smile campaign to ensure the materials produced reflect the needs of consumers and the professionals treating them.

The survey can be accessed here and closes on Tuesday 31st October 2023.
