NHS Confidence MonitorTime is running out to take part in the NHS Confidence Monitor survey, which will close at the end of July.

The survey offers both NHS and private dentists the chance to share their experience of working within the profession.

Dentists from across both sectors are being sought to share how happy they feel about things such as remuneration, job satisfaction, and the time they have to manage patient expectations.

This is the sixth time the survey has been run by Practice Plan, specialist providers of practice-branded membership plans.

Over the years it has shifted focus from confidence in the future of NHS dentistry to understanding the experience of being a dental professional today and the profession’s confidence in the future of dentistry as a whole.

Nigel Jones, sales and marketing director at Practice Plan, said: ‘The dental landscape is always changing.

‘By regularly asking the profession about their happiness and feelings about the future direction of the NHS, we aim to give dentists a chance to voice their true experience – whether they are still working in the NHS or have since made the move to private.

‘We will once again be sharing the results with the profession, as well as debating them with a panel of experts, to provide more understanding of the reality of life as a dentist today and support the wider conversation about the issues they face.’
