for referring dentists

Why dentists refer to MWDS

Dentists, dental auxillaries, and other health care workers can refer patients to a dental specialist. Complex, difficult treatment, or more routine treatment for patients with high expectations will often be referred to a dental specialist. The role of dental specialists is not to act as a substitute for general dental care, but to work in unison with the general practitioner to achieve the very best outcomes for our patients.
