Frequently Asked Questions

Your Questions Answered…

How do I refer?

You can either download a referral form, request a referral pack or refer online (members only). Alternatively, you can write to the relevant clinician.

Can I refer simply for an opinion?

Yes. Please state this at the time of referral.

Am I kept informed?

Yes. We try to give all relevant information about treatment and to involve the referring dentist in the planning stage if they wish. As different dentists like differing amounts of information, please do contact us if you require more or less information.

I am interested in learning more about the techniques. Can I attend whilst the patient is being treated?

Yes, we can usually organise this. We also run hands-on courses if you wish to learn more – Please contact us for more details.

Do you see the patient for continued review?

Sometimes this is indicated in perio cases. We like to see implants patients for a one off first year review. Otherwise, we do not see the patient unless they are having a problem when of course we are happy to see them without you having to re-refer.

Do I need to send in any radiographs with my referral?

If you have them, then yes you can send them with your referral and we will return them, but we may still take our own.
