If you are a dentist or other dental professional we welcome your referrals. Combined cases which need orthodontics as well as restorative, implant or periodontal input are also welcome. Either send us a letter with their details or fill in the Online Referral Form. If you would like to discuss a specific case or would like a practice visit, please don't hesitate to contact us. We also have A5 referral pads for your convenience, if you would like one (or more!) please let us know.
Dental EducationMegan Hatfield has given talks or lectures to study groups, conference and student days, most recently a clinical tip on lingual orthodontics to European specialists and a lecture of orthodontic assessment to young dentists. If you'd like a speaker for your study group or meeting on an orthodontic topic please get in touch. This could be a lunch and learn for team members, current orthodontic topics to update dentists, or clinical topics for specialists. She is happy to suggest suitable topics or adapt to requirements if possible.
