Annex 2: A summary of key points of variation across the non-UK EEA member states


The following table summarises key points of variation across the non-UK EEA member states. The key below explains the colour coding behind the analysis.

It is clear that significant variations exist between non-UK EEA member states. The most obvious difference seems to focus on the use of the dental team, particularly the wider dental team. In certain countries, for example, in the Netherlands, the team approach is well developed with all dentists working with full-time chair-side nursing support and large numbers of dental therapists, hygienists and some clinical dental technicians. However, just across the border, in Belgium, few dentists work with chair-side assistants (dental nurses) and there are no dental hygienists or therapists or clinical dental technicians.

There are also wide variations between the systems for the provision of oral healthcare between countries and many practitioners from non-UK EEA member states will have relatively little or no experience of working within a publicly-funded health service. This is particularly evident in former Eastern Bloc countries, many of whom have, in the last 20 years, changed from a purely public dental service to a purely private system. More recently, these countries have ceased foundation training. In many EEA member states the concept of clinical governance is defined differently to that in the UK.
