From time to time patients will present to us, most usually with either dental pain of dental related infection. The General Medical Council (GMC) and British Medical Association (BMA) guidance is very clear, as follows;
“GPs should not attempt to manage a condition requiring dental skills unless they have the appropriate training and expertise. Both the civil courts and the GMC require doctors to have appropriate skills for any treatment they offer.” It goes on to advise that the treatment of dental problems is not the responsibility of GPs and that the patient should be advised to contact local urgent or emergency dental services, or in severe circumstances the nearest accident and emergency department.
