The outputs of the Designed to Smile programme are described in annual monitoring reports provided to the Welsh Government.
The Welsh Government has commissioned a series of evaluation projects, conducted by Cardiff University:
Well conducted dental epidemiology surveys are a key way to assess the oral health of children, and to help to evaluate the impact of Designed to Smile.
The surveys are carried out by appropriately trained and calibrated Community Dental Services clinicians, supported by dental nurses.
Childhood oral health in Wales is also monitored through the annual reporting of paediatric dental general anaesthetic operations.
