Services we offer to our referring practices:

Complete case referral . Implant placement and rest

Once we have received your patient's details they are contacted to arrange a consultation appointment. During their first visit we examine them thoroughly and discuss their hopes and expectations of what can be achieved with implant dentistry. Photographs and study models and any necessary radiographs are taken at the practice, CT scans are arranged at this visit. A report is then sent to the patient and the referring practitioner.
The patient is seen for the implant placement and the following week for a review. The implant is left to integrate for a period before the restoration phase. Any other dental work is referred back to their referring dentist who can then also take over the monitoring of the implant and its maintenance.
Practitioners are welcome to accompany their patients for the consultation or treatment stages.

Implant placement only
Once practitioners are familiar with the implant process they may wish to restore the implants themselves .
The consultation and surgical stage is then done at
