New ‘Drug Prescribing for Dentistry’ website 

27 January, 2023 / infocus

The Scottish Dental Clinical Effectiveness Programme (SDCEP) has launched a new Drug Prescribing for Dentistry mobile-enabled website (

The new website should now be used instead of the Dental Prescribing app.

The Dental Prescribing smartphone app was introduced in 2012 as a handy way of accessing information within the SDCEP Drug Prescribing for Dentistry guidance.

With developments in technology and a significant evolution in the ways that users access digital information, the app has now reached the end of its useful life. 

Therefore, the Dental Prescribing app has been withdrawn and replaced with a mobile-enabled website, developed with NHS Education for Scotland Technology Service.   

The new website provides the same content as the app with similar functionality and has the advantage that it can be viewed on any mobile device or desktop computer. Being a website, accessing content requires an internet connection.  

All Dental Prescribing app users should now use the new Drug Prescribing for Dentistry website. The app is no longer supported or updated and should be deleted from all devices. 

The SDCEP website provides further information.
