New SDCEP Dental Companion app launchedAugust 13, 2019
The Scottish Dental Clinical Effectiveness Programme (SDCEP) has launched its second app, the SDCEP Dental Companion.
This app joins the popular SDCEP Dental Prescribing app as a handy way of accessing SDCEP’s evidence-based dental clinical guidance on your mobile device to support improvements in patient care. For convenience, the Dental Companion is also provided as a website for access from any computer.
The Dental Companion presents four diverse guidance ‘toolkits’ based on the following SDCEP publications:
- Prevention and Treatment of Periodontal Diseases in Primary Care
- Management of Dental Patients Taking Anticoagulants or Antiplatelet Drugs
- Oral Health Management of Patients at Risk of Medication-related Osteonecrosis of the Jaw
- Prevention and Management of Dental Caries in Children
Each toolkit includes the key recommendations from the full published guidance, with supporting tools such as flowcharts and links to patient information.
The app is available to download free on Google Play or the App Store.
