The SDCEP Dental Companion app has been replaced by a new mobile-enabled Dental Companion website (URL: This website should be used instead of the Dental Companion app, which will no longer be supported or updated and should be deleted from all devices. You can create an icon button on your mobile device home screen to provide quick access to the new website.


The Dental Companion was launched in 2019, providing easy access to SDCEP guidance via a mobile app or web-based resource for desktop computers. The Dental Companion presents four ‘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

We have now withdrawn the Dental Companion app and access to the content is provided via an upgraded, mobile-enabled version of the Dental Companion website, developed with NES Digital. This single resource delivers the same content as the Dental Companion app and previous Dental Companion website, with similar functionality and provides better user experience across devices. Being a website, accessing content requires an internet connection.

All Dental Companion app users should now use the Dental Companion website. The Dental Companion app is no longer supported or updated and should be deleted from all devices.
