A survey looking at the prevalence of medical emergency events in primary dental care, and the confidence of the dental team in managing them, is being undertaken by Newcastle University.

The last similar survey in the UK was in 1999.

Researchers are aiming to reach a wide range of dentists, specialists, and dental hygienists and therapists based in primary care to ensure a representative sample is obtained. This includes those in general dental practice, specialist practice and community dental services.

This project is a part of an NHS Health Education England North East (HEENE) research programme and ethical approval has been granted by Newcastle University Research Ethics Committee.

Participation involves completing a short online questionnaire which should take no more than five minutes and participants will be entered into a prize draw for an Amazon voucher.
