Informing Decision Makers with Research & Statistics

We provide a range of research and insights to help inform decision-making. If you would like to suggest potential areas for future research please contact Adam Stanley.
Through our Statistics Committee, we conduct and commission research into a range of areas across both the profession and industry.
This work provides valuable insights into areas such as the dental team’s attitudes towards and adoption of different dental technologies, the changing composition of the dental workforce and purchasing habits.
