This guidance aims to facilitate drug prescribing within primary care dental practice by bringing together advice on dental prescribing from the BNF and BNFC and presenting it in a readily accessible, problem-orientated style. The information on drug prescribing contained in this guidance is based on BNF 701 and BNFC 2015-16, whose advice is constructed from the clinical literature and reflects, as far as possible, an evaluation of the evidence from diverse sources. The drugs recommended in this guidance were identified by the Guidance Development Group as most relevant to primary care dental practice.
