Dentist Treatment

The Practice does not provide treatment or medication for dentist related problems. GP’s are not covered to provide such care and this is outside the level of competency. Please do not call our team requesting treatment or medication relating to issues that are best treated by a dentist.

Antiplatelet drugs and Dental Treatment

Most patients who are taking antiplatelet DOAC/ NOAC drugs do not need to consult a GP but the dentist needs to follow standard management practices.

DOAC/NOAC are drugs like:

  • Edoxaban
  • Apixaban
  • Dabigatran
  • Rivvaroxaban
  • Etexilate

A GP or consultation specialist may need to be consulted if the patient is taking multiple antiplatelet medication or an injectable medication.
