Details

These local supplementary surveys of adult subgroups support the Adult Dental Health Survey (ADHS) and provide information for comparison.

The surveys highlight:

  • higher levels of need among adults in contact with domiciliary dental care services compared with those found in the ADHS 2009

  • some differences in oral health measures between adults with learning disabilities and the ADHS data

  • higher levels of need and lower levels of reported self-care among adults using unscheduled care services in England compared with results of the ADHS
