DENTAL CLINICAL GUIDANCE: Drug Prescribing For Dentistry - Scottish Dental


This guidance is suitable for informing dental practitioners in the primary care sector, and applies to all patients, including adults, children and those with special needs, who would normally be treated in the primary care sector. 


The guidance does not include advice on prescribing for those in a secondary care environment or for practitioners with special expertise who may prescribe a wider range of drugs.


Drug regimens with dosages are included but the intention is for this guidance to be used in conjunction with the BNF and BNFC. 

Consult the most up-to-date volume of the BNF (www.bnf.org) before prescribing for adults and be aware that prescribing for some patient groups, including the elderly, patients who are immunocompromised or with hepatic or renal problems, patients who are pregnant and nursing mothers, might differ (see Section 1.1.4).


Consult the most up-to-date volume of the BNFC (www.bnf.org) before prescribing for children.
