Referral Guide

Patients will require an initial assessment prior to any treatment to determine their suitability for treatment under IV sedation.
Please could the referring dentist provide a comprehensive treatment plan. This should include;
  • Preferred materials for any restorations to be completed.
  • Surfaces of the teeth to be restored.
  • An indication of any discussions regarding post operative risks or complications.
Please attach relevant radiographs and/or photographs.

Post-Operative Care

As colleagues will be aware, post-operative complications can occur, particularly with restorative treatment under IV sedation as patient cooperation can be more challenging.
Detailed information would be given to all patients;
  • Following treatment the patient will be discharged back to the referring dentist.
  • We would ask for cooperation from referring colleagues to manage routine post-operative issues such as minor occlusal adjustments, smoothing of fillings, or immediate post-operative symptoms.
  • A detailed discussion regarding risks would be undertaken at the assessment appointment. The option to alter the treatment plan to remove, rather than restore, teeth with questionable prognosis would be offered.
  • Should restorative treatment fail, patients will also be made aware at the assessment appointment, that further treatment would incur further fees, particularly if additional sedation sessions are required.
