How the referral process works
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 as this can save the patient time and money.
