:In 1998, research on 'What the general public wants from the general dental service' was carried out by the Centre for Dental Services Studies (CDSS) at the University of York and was commissioned by the British Dental Association (BDA). The research culminated in the report: 'User Priorities for General Dental Services'. This article outlines the main message from the research and contains the researcher's personal observations.
