Dental Treatment Prescriptions

Getting medicines for your dental condition

Your dentist is the right person to recommend and prescribe medicines for your dental condition.  Please do not ask your GP to prescribe medicines that are best accessed via your dentist.

If you are receiving dental treatment as an NHS patient:

  • Prescription medicines that you need can usually be prescribed on an NHS prescription by your dentist
  • Your dentist can advise you of any non-prescription medicines that you need, and direct you to places you can buy them over the counter e.g. a pharmacy

 

If you are getting dental treatment as a private patient:

Prescription medicines that you need can usually be prescribed on a private prescription by your dentist

  • Your dentist can advise you of non-prescription medicines that you need, and direct you to places you can buy them over the counter e.g. a pharmacy
  • Medicines recommended as part of dental treatment as a private patient cannot be prescribed on an NHS prescription by either your dentist or your GP
