We accept referrals for complex restorative and prosthodontics cases, implants and smile design/makeovers. We also have an in-house specialist endodontist with whom we can work with on cases should this be required and with your approval.
We will always keep the referring dentist fully informed along the patient's journey from start to finish, allowing them to be involved in the patients care for a truly shared care interdisciplinary experience, always acting in the best interests of the patient.
Referring dentists are welcome to visit the practice and be a part of the patient's treatment at any stage should they wish.
Once we have completed the patient's treatment on the scope of our referral, we will discharge the patient back to your ongoing care.
We have a passion for education and technology to enhance our patient's experience and improve the outcome of their treatment, from ongoing high-level quality education to intraoral digital scanners.
We believe in a clear pricing structure for patients with no hidden fees or surprises. We also offer a range of payment options including interest-free finance to help spread the cost.
