Refer Your Patient
At Blackhills Clinic our registered specialists take referrals for all aspects of adult dentistry (except Orthodontics). We try to contact your patient within 24 hours of receipt of your referral. If this is not addressed to a specific clinician, we will decide which of our specialists or combination of specialists would be best suited for your patient. A combination of clinicians help to ensure a truly integrated treatment plan and avoids unnecessary additional appointments.
Dentists can now register to use the online referral system. This facilitates quicker data entry and saves time. REGISTER NOW.
Please note – if you are referring a patient for just a “treatment plan” or “comment”, we have to be aware of the medico-legal implications of not having detailed knowledge of the competence and skills of each individual referrer. Therefore, it will not be possible to provide a prescriptive treatment plan and the onus of responsibility for carrying out any advised treatment falls to the referrer.
When to refer
We would recommend that you refer your patient to us as soon as you feel it might be appropriate. Where possible, we would like to see the patient before any teeth are removed.
How to refer
Blackhills Clinic accepts referrals in different formats, but the easiest would be to simply complete the online referral form below, attaching any relevant radiographs, images or charts.
