Subject:        Death of patients having GA for dental treatment




I wish to be provided the following information:

  • Number of deaths per year since 2000 (including the full year 2000) under GA for dental procedures, either under the care of the Public Dental Service (PDS) or Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (OMFS)
  • The age of the patients that died.




Our current reporting system only contains admissions from 2011 onwards and in that time we have had no deaths that have occurred under GA for dental procedures.
