The Greater Manchester Restorative MCN has released new guidance on the referral of patient’s requiring restorative care. The guidance can be found here as well as in the Training Guides and Videos section of the site.
Restorative Dentistry Referral Guidelines
The role of the Restorative Dentistry service is to provide a diagnostic and treatment planning service to referring practitioners. We are not able to provide primary care treatment; a small number of cases are accepted for undergraduate training but otherwise treatment not requiring specialist care is returned to the referring practitioner for completion. Note that the lack of ability to pay for treatment is not an indication for a referral and all patients with active primary disease will be returned to the referring practitioner for remedial treatment
