Collection and usage attributes
|Guide for use:|
A public dental visit is defined as an appointment with a dental professional, as a result of being placed on the public dental waiting list. The appointment can be for assessment or treatment purposes.
Where a person attends multiple visits as part of a single waiting list episode, only the date of first attended visit is recorded.
Appointments which were scheduled but not attended by the person are not recorded.
Where a person is on an assessment waiting list, the visit is considered to be the assessment that results in removal from this list.
Where a person is on a general dental care or denture care waiting list, the visit is considered to be the treatment that results in removal from this list.
