Abstract:  The author, a dentist affiliated with The Royal Dental College, University of Aarbus, Aarbus, Denmark, describes the dental compounding environment in Denmark. There the 215 pharmacies in that country decided to centralize the production of compounds to two pharmacies, from which other pharmacists can order a specific compound and pass it on an individual dentist. This measure was adopted because of reasons of cost effectiveness. The author provides a listing of example Danish dental compounds and nine formulations (three solutions for desensitizing dentine [teeth sensitive to cold or sweet], four remedies for treating dental pulp and root canals and two topical anesthetics and disinfectants for the oral mucosa).
