For patients whose outcome data are available and have not previously been submitted, please submit the following information required for each birth year.

Key: “*” refers to summary information being provided in the Preliminary Report to cleft services and Clinical Excellence Networks (CENs) in April 2023. The Dental CEN will then provide guidance on appropriateness of inclusion of DMFT at 10 years in the Annual Report.

To review the data that has been submitted to date by birth year and outcome type please use our guides, or contact us if you require help. Outcomes are not required where patients have declined consent.
