In spring 2008 the first SHA-wide survey of the dental health of adults took place. More than 25,000 adults were sent a copy of a questionnaire asking about their dental health, experiences of accessing dental services and smoking status. Nearly 11,000 questionnaires were returned, giving an overall regional response rate of 43%.
