Dental Earnings and Expenses Estimates 2017/18


This report provides a detailed study of the earnings and expenses of full-time and part-time self-employed primary care dentists who carried out some NHS/Health Service work in England & Wales, Northern Ireland or Scotland in 2017 to 2018.

Although the report contains analysis of England & Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland, the values are not directly comparable between countries; this is due to differing contractual arrangements in each country as well as the use of different methods to derive dental type in each country.
