The BDA Survey of Community Dentists 2018
How this information will be used
The information is collected by the BDA to support the policy activity it undertakes on behalf of the profession and will inform the evidence we supply to the Review Body on Doctors’ and Dentists’ Remuneration (DDRB). We are also looking at the impact of ongoing changes within the CDS and the survey will help inform this work. All data will be used for research purposes only and any information you provide will be treated confidentially.

What happens to the data collected?
Data from all participants will be coded, combined and analysed independently by the research team. Parts of the study may also be submitted for publication. Direct quotes from the survey may be used in reports and publications but quotes will be anonymised to ensure that participants cannot be identified.

All information you provide to us is stored on secure servers. The data that we collect from you will not be transferred to, or stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area ("EEA"). Your personal data collected through this survey will be stored for seven years. Data will be stored on our servers and our survey platform (Smartsurvey).
