- Dentists say that the most complex treatments, such as implants and cosmetic dentistry, have suffered a decline in demand of 25%

- Dr. Óscar Castro, President of the Spanish General Dental Council, confirms that: "For the Council, as guarantor of the oral health of the Spaniards, it is essential to conduct such surveys to promote specific actions that benefit society".

 

Madrid, 11 March 2016.- 80% of the Spanish dentists claims to be satisfied with the treatments provided to patients. However, most of them think that the economic crisis has affected to certain treatments. In 2015, the most complex dental treatments suffered a decline in demand of up to 25%. These and other findings were released at a press conference last Friday in Expodental, where the Spanish General Dental Council and the Spanish Dental Foundation presented the results of The Oral Health Observatory in Spain.

The Oral Health Observatory in Spain

The main objective of this Observatory is to obtain, in a periodical way, a series of indicators to get information on the current status of dental health in Spain. The Observatory seeks to identify the strong points in order to strengthen them and to try to correct weaknesses. To obtain these data, quarterly interviews have been done to a sample of 150 sentinel dentists scattered across the country.

After analyzing the four waves of 2015, the conclusions have been that the Spanish dentists have worked an average of 120 hours per month having treated about 180 patients, which 6 out of 10 were women. On the other hand, children under 7 and adults over 65 are those who least visit the dentist. Regarding the impact of the crisis, 7 out of 10 dentists believe that this has quite affected when having to perform certain treatments. The most popular treatments in the past year have been the simplest one (check-ups, extractions, orthodontics, seals ...). More complex treatments such as implants and cosmetic dentistry have suffered a decline in demand of 25%. This has led to 1 out of 4 dentists to claims to have suffered a significant reduction in their income during 2015. To legislate misleading health advertising, to get control of franchising, to limit the professional plethora and to promote oral health, seem to have been the main concerns of the Spanish dentists during the past year.
