Our referral services include:

  • Oroscopic examinations with video and image recording
  • Oral and surgical dental extractions including minimally invasive techniques (MTE, MIR*, sectioning)
  • Occlusal restorations e.g. infundibular caries
  • Endodontic therapy of incisors, canines and cheek teeth
  • Periodontal disease treatments including widening and bridging of diastemata

Diagnostic Imaging

We can arrange any imaging modality for your cases. We have our own Siemens 16-Slice standing computed tomography (CT) system at our clinic near Wimborne in Dorset∗, plus CT is available at two of our regular clinics (Langford, Liphook). Cases requiring CT can be imaged and treated ‘same-day’ at our clinic, or at the above regional clinics.

Image reading service

Chris and Nicole offer a free informal head and dental image reading service. For regular referral practices, Chris will share a Dropbox folder with you which can be installed free on any number of computers and images (Dicom or jpeg) can simply be ‘dropped’ in there from any computer with internet connection (preferably the imaging computer). Referral reports can then also be placed directly in the folder, for viewing or integration with practice management software.

Feel free to contact Chris anytime for an informal opinion on a case or to discuss a referral appointment.
