Orthodontic interactions: the relationships between the orthodontic services in England and Wales.

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    The manpower distribution and the amount of treatment undertaken by the three orthodontic treatment providing groups was calculated on a national and regional basis. There was marked regional variation in the distribution of orthodontic manpower. It was found that the total orthodontic treatment rate correlated with the distributions of specialist practitioners and general dental practitioners, but not with that of the salaried services. The manpower distribution of specialist practitioners and Community Orthodontists was also related. These results are discussed in terms of the effect of manpower distribution upon demand for treatment and the amount of treatment provided by the orthodontic services.
