Referrals for dental sedation

As Cheltenham’s Dental Sedation Centre we are the region’s leading dental sedation practice. We are qualified, experienced and equipped to administer intravenous and inhalation sedation essential to treating nervous, anxious and dental-phobic patients who would otherwise not receive the treatment they need.

Since 2001, we have been offering a comprehensive range of dental treatment under sedation – from routine restorative treatment to more complex treatments such as extractions, root canal therapy, crowns, veneers and dental implants.

Benefits to your practice of referring patients to Arnica Dental Care

1. Attract more patients
By supplementing the treatment you offer with our referral treatments you will be able to offer existing and prospective patients a more comprehensive service to rival competitor practices.

2. Complete treatment plans faster
Once we have received your referral form we will contact your patient immediately to book them in for an initial referral examination at a time to suit them. We will then complete treatment as soon as possible, returning the patient to your ongoing care faster than most hospitals and many other referral services.

3. Free up your time to focus on what you do best
Treating patients who are either highly anxious/phobic or require complex surgical procedures can be challenging, time consuming and in many cases not cost effective if you’re not doing it every day like us. Using our referral service will free up your time to concentrate on the treatments you do best, helping you to use your time most effectively and therefore become more profitable.

4. Increase your associate revenue
If you are a frequent referral dentist, we’ll discuss the opportunity of us teaching you how to complete the implant restorations (designing and fitting the implant crown) so that your practice retains this proportion of the dental implant revenue.
