Survey 1 Benefits of Fluoride

Q1 Are you aware we have no fluoride added to the water in our area? Yes 29 No 71

Q2 Fluoride is beneficial to teeth. Are you aware of this? Yes 90 No 10

Q3 Do you have a fluoride toothpaste as your normal daily poste? Yes 84 No 3 Unsure 13

Q4 Are you aware that between the ages of 3-16 the practice can provide fluoride treatment? Yes 40 No 60

This survey was aimed of families due to question 4 so that we could get as accurate a result as possible.

The answers to question 1 and 4 show that there is still not as much education regarding fluoride as there could be. As a practice, we will aim to highlight the benefits of fluoride application to parents of their child's appointment. We have posters up in some of the surgeries to show people what their recommended fluoride content in toothpaste is. We advertise the OHE service in the waiting room and the dentist will advise parents if they feel their children will benefit from on appointment.

Comments:

More information regarding products would be appreciated.

78% of those asked said they did not suffer from bleeding or sore gums. Of the 22% who answered that they did, the majority of these did respond positively to knowing what services the hygienist offered and the benefits of using Corsodyl products. From the survey results, it seems it would be beneficial to advertise in the waiting room the benefits of Corsodyl products as well as highlighting the services of the hygienist for those patients who have not seen them before.

The reminders are good

The Email system works well great reminder

 Reminders are very useful

Good to get a text but could it contain a contact number or a reply option?

Not too early as still may forget.

Really useful idea as is such a long time between appointments.

 

We send all our patients with an email address or email reminder. We send all out patients with a text number or text reminder. We now offer a reply option with the text message reminders. Since our new reminder system has been implemented, we have found we do not hove as many patients missing their appointments.
