Recent updates from SDCEP

The Scottish Dental Clinical Effectiveness Programme (SDCEP) have recently provided some review and document updates. These updates are not updates to guidance, but instead are identifying and appraising the current evidence base in order to inform policy and clinical guidance in all regions of the UK.

  • SDCEP Rapid Review of Aerosol Generating Procedures in Dentistry – This document, which when initially published was significant in determining post-AGP fallow periods across the UK, has been updated. However, currently, the conclusions of the rapid review remain unchanged
  • Ventilation Information for Dentistry – This document aims to provide a summary of information on ventilation to mitigate the risk of COVID-19 transmission, with a focus on advice and information that has relevance for dental facilities. It has been compiled from several key publicly available documents developed by other organisations and expert groups.
