Guidance for external referral
Depending on the referral reason, please advise your patients on our price-lists and the procedure:
If referring for a one-off treatment and the patient will be returning to your care to complete the rest of their treatment plan:
£50 for a short assessment with a Paediatric Dentist to confirm the treatment plan. Any treatment provided will be charged separately.
If referring for a course of treatment and the patient will stay with us to complete their treatment plan:
£160 (up to age 5), or £190 (age 5 and over) to carry out a full oral health assessment with a Paediatric Dentist, who will provide a full treatment plan and an estimate of costs.
Please note that a Paediatric Dentist assessment is a legal requirement and can not be omitted.
If referring for complex surgical treatment provided by a consultant, IV sedation, or treatment under General Anaesthesia, please update your patient with the following information:
£300 for initial assessment and treatment planning with a Paediatric Consultant, during which the type of treatment and sedation will be discussed.
Please note that inhalation sedation, IV sedation, or treatment under General Anaesthesia requires two stage consent to be done on different days. No treatment can be carried out under sedation on the first visit, except in justified emergencies.
We would appreciate it if you attach any x-rays or relevant pictures when filling in the referral form.
For any other information please feel free to contact our dedicated treatment coordinator Dorina Vulpe on 020 7078 0822 or by email email@example.com.

General dental practitioner:
As a referring clinician, my little patient with autism had a facial swelling due to an infected tooth. We were all distressed in trying to manage the escalating situation. I made a referral to Happy Kids Dental. Their team were incredible! They supported the family through the whole process, saw them very quickly, he had his treatment without being traumatised or distressed, and continues to be a happy little guy. I highly recommend Happy Kids Dental as I am confident my young patients will be well looked after, and nurtured. Dorina particularly smoothed out the entire process for referring dentists and families alike (Leigh-Ann Elias, General Dental Practitioner GDP)
