We have made things easier for you with our new referral form. You now have three options to complete the referral form:
- You can complete your referral form and upload your X-ray files online and send it straight to us.
- You can also have the option to simply complete the form and print.
- Or if you prefer just print, complete and post it to us.
If an X-ray is available for you to send across it means that we can often make a decision on a treatment plan and see the patient directly for treatment. Otherwise a Consultation appointment can be scheduled. If you have a digital system you can send the x-ray across by email, as a jpeg preferably. If you send films we will always take great care to return them to you.
We are fortunate enough to have a Digital X-ray system, which means that your patient will have the opportunity to view their X-rays on the screen while discussing possible treatment options.
3D Imaging (CBCT)
The introduction of the new Morita Cone Beam facility in the practice means that in some cases that present with particular diagnostic difficulty, a three dimensional scan can be taken. If you refer your patient solely for a CBCT scan, please make it clear on the attached referral form the purpose and clinical indication for the particular exposure.
We are pleased to accept IFR funded patients for root canal treatment. Please speak to your dentist for more information concerning your entitlement for the NHS funding, please download the Policy and Procedures here.
