Endodontic Referrals in Richmond


We accept referrals for specialist root canal treatment.

Root Canal Referrals


As a specialist endodontist, Dr Orsteen understands that it requires a great deal of trust for clinicians to refer their patients to him. With his wealth of experience, and working with the latest technology and materials, he strives to build effective and mutually beneficial relationships with all clinicians who refer to him, and to care for their patients in the best way possible.

Endodontics can be a complex and demanding procedure and this is the reason why many general dentists choose to refer cases to Dr Orsteen. His practice is limited to endodontic treatment only, so dentists can rest assured that their patients will be returned to their care following treatment.

The referral process


Referred patients will only be accepted for the specific treatment requested by the referring dentist. After an initial consultation, options and choices available to the patient will be discussed in detail and Dr Orsteen will spend as much time as necessary to enable patients to make an informed decision about the appropriate treatment for their needs.

A fully personalised treatment plan and estimate of the fees involved will be given to the patient. No treatment will be carried out until this has taken place.

Once Dr Orsteen has completed the treatment for which the patient has been referred, they are returned to the referring dentist who will complete any ongoing treatment. A full written report will be sent to the referring dentist.

When making the referral, it is appreciated that as much as possible information about the case is passed on to Dr Orsteen. This can save the patient time and money.
