Welcome to our referral resources page for referring dentists, where you will find all the information and help you need to make referring patients to us an easy and rewarding experience.
Our referral guarantee

Our referral guide explains everything a referral patient needs to know about being referred to Arnica for treatment.
Once we have booked a referral patient in for their first appointment we will send them a hard copy of the guide along with a covering letter confirming their appointment details. This will also be followed up by e-mail, with links to our online referral guide (see below)
Preparation for treatment with sedation – download PDFs
Our patient Referral Guide (above) has an important section on how to prepare for treatment with sedation.
To view this advice go to our Guide to Treatment with Sedation
You can also download our Guide to Intravenous Sedation
Our on-line patient referral forms
We will keep you supplied with our traditional printed referral forms. However, many of our referral dentists are now using our easy-to-use secure online referral form that allows you to upload attachments such as X-rays. The system will also e-mail you a copy of your referral submission for your records.
Dental implant restoration masterclasses
If you refer patients to us for dental implants we will show you how to do the restorations (fitting the prosthetic to the abutment and the abutment to the implant) yourself so that you retain fees associated with this part of the procedure.
The program comprises 4 modules or ‘masterclasses’ comprising:
Module 1 Treatment planning and restoring the single posterior dental implant
Module 2 Treatment planning and restoring the single anterior dental implant
Module 3 Treatment planning and restoring multiple dental implants in a partially edentulous arch
Module 4 Treatment planning and restoring dental implants in the edentulous mandible.
For more information about our restoration masterclasses please contact Charlotte Watts our practice manager.
