Research projects

  • Information requirements of the Community Dental Service (Sept 1998), my involvement here culminated in my being a Welsh Assembly representative at Department of Health meetings related to this issue.
  • CDS/GDS Update Report, (Aug 2001) – this evaluation report resulted in additional funding being awarded to the initiative at the time, a precursor to PDS in Wales.

Fissure Sealant Programme Evaluation Reports, (Apr 2004, ongoing).  These reports prompted considerable debate on the effectiveness of the programme, especially in relation to its delivery. Consequently, those implementing the programme have revisited their methods to try to improve effectiveness and efficiency.
