Reasons to refer
Fundamental to a successful practice is the relationship between patient and dentist. The Birmingham Periodontal and Implant Centre can help you the dentist maintain this relationship with your patient by offering you our expertise in specific areas. The specialists at the practice have many years of treating complex cases and have gained substantial knowledge and expertise in the fields of:
Fixed & Removable Prosthodontics
Computer Guided Dental Implant Surgery
The highly qualified specialists as well as the support staff are dedicated in providing the very best are in comfortable and modern surroundings using the latest technologies. We can therefore offer your patients the latest developments as a referral practice dedicated to excellence in these fields.
When we receive your referral request, whether by post, fax or e-mail, your patient will be contacted to make an appointment. The initial consultation will take 45-60 minutes and will consist of medical and social background information, a full periodontal examination using an electronic Florida Probe and radiographs to assess the extent of the patient’s problem. All the options and choices open to the patient will be discussed in detail with patient. If it is a particularly complex case a further visit may be necessary as well taking study models or even a CT scan at the practice.
A full report, periodontal chart and x-rays will be sent to you, the referring dentist, and the patient will have a written estimate of the fees involved.
When the patient is ready to proceed with treatment we will make all the necessary appointments and will send you regular reports on the progress of your patient.
During treatment at the Birmingham Periodontal and Implant Centre, the patient is always reminded of the necessity of continuing to visit you, their general dental practitioner, for regular examinations and treatment.
