Providing evidence-based guidance and standards for the whole of the dental profession promotes high-quality practice and patient care.
We set the authoritative standards and guidance for general dental practice, inherited from FGDP. Digital copies are available below free of charge, together with the College’s own guidance, for the benefit of all dental professionals and their patients.
We are also producing a series of webinars about our guidance and standards publications, in partnership with ProDental CPD, which are free to view live for all members of the dental professions. Visit our events page to find out what’s coming soon.
The Antimicrobial Prescribing Self-Audit Tool, co-published with the British Dental Association and endorsed by Public Health England, helps dental prescribers to complete a clinical audit of their antimicrobial prescribing and management of dental infections, and to compare audited practice against the guidance.
Further resources are available in the Dental Antimicrobial Stewardship Toolkit, which was developed by the FGDP(UK), the British Dental Association and the Dental Sub-Group of Public Health England’s English surveillance programme for antimicrobial utilisation and resistance (ESPAUR).
Implications of COVID-19 for the safe management of general dental practice
Our COVID-19 guidance supports dental professionals to take a risk-based, evidence-based approach to providing safe general dental care, and looking after team wellbeing, in the current circumstances.
