Emergency Patients

For guidance on advising and treating emergency patients refer to the Scottish Dental Clinical Effectiveness Programme (SDCEP) guidance Emergency Dental Care [1].

For private patients, put together a practice policy on dealing with emergencies and communicate this to all staff. Consider using the SDCEP guidance above, adapting any parts that are not relevant to private patients.
