I am pleased to offer a clinic dedicated to providing high quality implant dentistry using up to date techniques in comfortable, contemporary surroundings. My sole aim is to provide the highest possible standard of care and service for patients using evidence-based procedures that offer predictable and reliable results. I look forward to meeting you.

An initial consultation will be arranged with your patient to discuss treatment options. They will be fully informed of the procedure and will receive a written treatment plan outlining costs and the number of proposed appointments, thereby providing gaining their informed consent.

On completion of their implant treatment, your patient will be returned to you either fully restored or for a definitive restoration and on-going general dental care – according to your referral instructions. Patients and referring dentists will be able to contact me or the Practice Manager should any queries arise before, during or after the implant treatment is undertaken. Your patient will only be offered treatment for which they have been specifically referred.

ALL TREATMENTS ARE CARRIED OUT USING A WIDE RANGE OF UP-TO-DATE TECHNIQUES AND EQUIPMENT

The specific services to you and your patients include:

  • Surgical placement of single or multiple implants
  • Prosthetic restoration of implants with implant supported crowns, bridges, dentures, or overdentures
  • Socket preservation technique Guided bone regeneration
  • Case assessments and treatment planning of complex cases Assistance in treatment planning and implant restoration for referrers.

The Service we are offering to referring dentists and patients:

  • Patients will have a full consultation including clinical and radiographic examination based on the nature of the referral.
  • Patients will be fully consented for any treatment proposed and subsequently undertaken.
  • Patients will receive a written treatment plan outlining costs and the number of proposed appointments.
  • Patients will receive a high standard of care and treatment using modern equipment and materials.
  • Patients can contact us before, during or after their implant treatment, should any queries arise. Likewise referring dentists can contact us regarding their patients’ progress.
  • Referring dentists will be kept informed of their patients’ progress.
  • A discharge letter and a copy of the final radiograph, if appropriate, will be sent to the referring dentist upon completion of each of their patient’s implant treatment. The patient will also receive a copy of this.
  • No other treatment other than that for which the patient has been referred will be undertaken.

Dental Implants and patient suitability.

Most adults will be suitable for dental implants. However, it is important that the patient’s bone tissue has fully developed, so I would not normally use implants on people below 18 years ofage. For implants to work effectively, adult patients should be in general good health with healthy gums. Patients with gum disease, who are heavy smokers (and unwilling to stop) and patients with medical conditions such as uncontrolled diabetes that affect healing capacity may not be suitable for implants.

I am very happy to see patients for an initial consultation and every patient will receive an individualised treatment plan. Should your patient not be suitable for implants, they will be returned to your care with options for a suitable alternative.
