Guide for use:Help on this term

A dental care episode includes assessment if the person is on a waiting list for assessment, or treatment if the person is on a waiting list for general care and/or denture care.

Where the offer of dental care is made by letter, the date of offer is the date of the letter.

Where the offer of dental care is made by phone call, the date of offer is the date of the call.

Where a person has received multiple offers of dental care as part of a single waiting list episode, only the first offer of care is recorded.
