Unlike primary medical care, primary dental care services are used by patients on a regular, prevention-orientated basis. This provides the primary dental healthcare team with unique opportunities to intervene, particularly as asking patients about their levels of alcohol consumption is a routine component of medical history taking. Effective treatment options include motivational advice, information leaflets and, when necessary, referral to specialist mental health professionals in consultation with the patient's medical practitioner.
