Dental assurance reviews

COVID-19 update: We've agreed with NHS England and NHS Improvement and the Welsh Government to pause a number of our assurance exercises.

This is to help manage the increased pressure on dental providers. More information can be found in our briefing document about the pausing of assurance exercises (PDF: 112KB).

As part of our Provider Assurance role we carry out reviews of specific areas of contract activity.

These reviews may be national and focused on the highest risk contracts for a specific scenario. Alternatively they may be initiated by commissioners following concerns raised locally or identified from routine reporting.

Reviews are administered by our Dental Assurance Review team and overseen by our Clinical Advisers. The advisers will provide a final report to the commissioning health body.
