“Everyone delivering and supporting oral healthcare has a role to play”
Teams delivering oral healthcare are reminded that they can identify service improvements, working together to help keep antimicrobials working by audit of prescribing practices. The wider oral health community should consider its impact too, by ensuring access to the right oral healthcare at the right time and in the right place.
Dental teams are invited to use the following resources to ensure that antimicrobials are being used only when strictly necessary and appropriate. The Dental Antimicrobial Stewardship Toolkit provides a range of guidance, training, audit and patient-facing resources which will be useful for all members of the team, including but not limited to prescribers.
