Working alongside you, strengthening your relationship with your patient
We accept referrals for the diagnosis and treatment of many dental problems. We aim to work closely with our referring dentists, providing the patient with the required service in a professional and timely manner. We provide reports of consultations and follow-up reviews to keep the referring dentist up to date with their patient’s progress. In the course of managing a referred patient, we may identify items of treatment that fall under the remit of their general dentist, which we will identify in reports.
Patients are actively encouraged to maintain their oral health to the highest possible standards and this reinforces their relationship with their general dentist. We ask that the referring dentist continues to provide all the patient’s general dental treatments, even concurrently with our own work.
Where the patient’s treatment needs are complex we work hand in hand with our referring dentists so that they carry out the elements of their patient’s treatment which they are comfortable with, allowing us to focus on the elements which demand specialist attention.
