We are proud to have 2 Specialist Endondontists working here at Edinburgh Dental Specialists, both of whom also hold hospital consultancy positions. As you would expect we have invested in the latest technology and dental microscopy in order for your patients to benefit from more predictable results that this affords.
As with all the specialists, Dr. Tait and Dr. Philpott aim to be approachable and establish a working relationship with referring practitioners for the benefit of their patients. If you wish to discuss a case prior to referring then please do call or e-mail Dr. Tait or Dr. Philpott at the practice. Similarly, once referred, if Dr. Tait or Dr. Philpott are unclear about the treatment being requested or feel other options are available they will contact you as soon as is practical.
The referral process
After receiving your referral we will send your patient a consultation appointment and include useful information describing endodontic treatment for their perusal. Following the consultation, for which as a courtesy to you for your referral, there is no charge, Dr. Tait or Dr. Philpott will agree the treatment plan and costs with the patient and a subsequent treatment appointment will be offered.
Where ever possible please send any relevant radiographs with your referral letter. These will be returned to you on completion of the patient's treatment.
On completion of treatment, the patient will be referred back to your care for the completion of any restorative work that may be required. A full report, along with supporting treatment radiographs, will be sent to you.
