Description In this study, 54 articles on oral and facial dog bites and illustrations of 3 patients are reviewed. Firstly, wounds in general are considered, secondly non-extrapolated, updated worldepidemiology (USA and Canada, India, Tanzania, Italy, United Kingdom, Colombia, Peru, Argentina, Australia, Switzerland, Austria and Spain) on rates of bite per population of dog attacks will be studied and then some specific types of wounds, in particular, dog bite injury to the mouth area, are considered. The third section deals specifically with face wounds. Fourthly, the medical treatment of dog bite wounds is described, including rabies and tetanus prevention and antibiotics, and surgical approaches: sutures, wound care and instrumental interventions in a dentistry or medical setting and complications with two examples: those treated in the hospital and in an outpatient setting, before and after. The anatomy, legislation, controversies and races of dogs are discussed. The ultimate aim is to determine when a patient with a special injury should be referred to hospital, according to the principle: primun non cedere. The aim of this article is help dentists and physicians to clarify this question, following the explanations provided in four tables and three pictures.
