Please complete and return your agreement along with copies of your relevant CPD certificates as soon as practical in addition to the referral form below for the patient.  

HOW TO REFER PATIENTS FOR SCANS IF YOU ARE NOT CERTIFIED TO REFER.
If you are waiting to attend a course or indeed don’t wish to become certified, our dentists are happy to refer your patients for scans on your behalf. In this instance, patients will be required to book an appointment with one of our dentists, at an additional cost of £47, in order to be assessed for scan suitability.
HOW TO REFER WHEN YOU ARE CERTIFIED
Following receipt of your service level agreement and certificate to demonstrate you are qualified to refer patients for scans we will be able to accept your referrals.

Your patient will be asked to pay for their scan at their appointment unless you instruct us otherwise.
