Improving care to high needs patients (Band 2 changes)

The calculations to award additional UDAs will be based on the Clinical Data Set (CDS) items entered on the FP17. It is therefore important that this is fully completed.

For claims with Date of Acceptance on or after Friday 25 November 2022, special attention should be paid to completing the following CDS items:

•         Permanent fillings

•         Extractions

•         Endodontics - molar on permanent teeth

•         Endodontics - non-molar on permanent teeth

Band Description UDAs awarded
2a Treatment which does not include activity from Band 2b or Band 2c 3 UDA
2b Includes extraction or fillings to 3 or more teeth or non-molar endodontic care to permanent teeth 5 UDA
2c Molar endodontic care to permanent teeth 7 UDA

Patient charges remain the same for all Band 2 treatments.

Read our UDA Knowledge Base article about units of activity for information about the:  

  • number of UDAs each Band 2 claim awards
  • courses of treatment applicable to each band

Recording extractions and fillings

Numbers for these items are based on tooth count.

Fillings must be permanent fillings, and submitted numbers should be based on the number of teeth with permanent fillings completed, not the number of actual fillings.

Recording endodontic treatment

For courses of treatment starting on or after 1 October 2022, endodontic treatment is now split into 2 categories:

  • Endodontic – Molar
  • Endodontic – Non-molar

Endodontic – Molar

The number of permanent molar teeth endodontically treated (root filled) should be submitted. Treatment on deciduous teeth must not be included.

Endodontic – Non-molar

The number of permanent non-molar teeth endodontically treated (root filled) should be submitted. Treatment on deciduous teeth must not be included.

For more information on CDS items, read page 12 of Completion of form guidance – FP17 (under the ‘Dental forms’ heading).
