Information for Dentists
N.B. If you are a patient please note the images below are for dentists and you may find them unpleasant.
We provide a simple, friendly support service to our referring professional colleagues and their patients. Our state-of-the-art clinic has dedicated departments for Periodontics, Prosthodontics, Oral Surgery / Implantology and Dento-Maxillofacial Radiology.
Our aim is to provide the very best in multidisciplinary treatment using evidence-based protocols for the benefit of patients and to take full advantage of working with other specialists in a dedicated unit. We are here to support you and your patients, not only for treatment but also for opinions and assistance with treatment planning.
When patients are referred for implant treatment, unless a particular specialist is requested we will triage the referrals and arrange for the initial consultation to be with the appropriate specialist. Ongoing provision of each phase of treatment would then proceed on a multidisciplinary basis.
If the referring practitioner will be providing the restorative part of implant therapy, the patient will be returned to the care of the referring practitioner after successful implant integration.
Advanced treatment procedures require good collaboration with the referring practitioner, thorough assessment and treatment planning, careful management of patient expectations and precise execution of the treatment procedures.
At Perlan Specialist Centre we take the time to understand the patient’s needs and expectations and explain on models and with the help of images, the possibilities of therapy. Patients often present to us with failed or failing dentitions and we appreciate and empathise with the concerns that people have regarding advanced treatment.
Such advanced therapy is best carried out in defined treatment phases which require a systematic approach to treatment planning. At the initial consultation we assess the extent and severity of the problem. We will take into account the patient’s expectations and wishes and patients will receive written information regarding the nature, cost, and timescale of treatment, together with the alternative options open to them.
We do not provide “routine” basic dental care. All patients will be returned to the care of the referring dentist upon completion of treatment.
Ongoing Supportive Care
Complex restorative and implant cases are generally reviewed on an annual basis.
For periodontal cases, depending on the severity of the disease and the patients risk assessment, we will offer Supportive Periodontal Therapy at Perlan Specialist Dental Centre. However, we would like to encourage a "shared care" approach whereby the maintenance treatment is carried out in conjunction with the referring General Dental Practitioner and Dental Hygienist respectively.
