As a vital part of patient management, general dental practitioners are expected to recognise the extent of their patient’s treatment needs and when referrals are necessary.

Clear and effective communication between all parties is essential in the referral process. This one-day multidisciplinary lecture will discuss important points the clinician needs to bear in mind when considering a referral to a specialist practitioner and clarify the various elements and responsibilities needed to provide the referred patient with the required level of professional care.

In those cases warranting it, timely and appropriate referral is of great importance in a dentist’s duty of care to their patient. Failure to inform a patient of the need for consultation and/or referral could expose the dentist to medicolegal complications.
