Your patients journey
Six steps from referral to completion:
1. New patient consultations
We welcome your patient into a professional environment and listen with respect to his/her concerns. After careful consideration we respond by presenting all possible treatment options together with a written recommendation and estimate of the investment required. There is always time for questions and a period of reflection.
2. Pre-surgical planning
To achieve your patient's desired functional and aesthetic outcomes we place great emphasis on pre-surgical planning by utilising a range of imaging (CT), diagnostic previews, face bow registration and surgical guides.
All surgery is performed precisely and gently, minimising surgical trauma and improving postsurgical experience, guaranteeing a superb aesthetic outcome.
After surgery your patient is transferred to our recovery area and is supervised by one of our care nurses. Prior to discharge we ensure your patient has full instructions and a 24-hour point of contact for help and advice.
5. Reconstructive phase
Our pre-surgical planning and meticulous approach to surgery pays dividends, ensuring the finest aesthetic result. All functional requirements are attended to and every care is taken to ensure the patient's needs and wishes are met. The use of daylight photography and the patient's own 'pretooth loss' photographs allow effective and accurate communication with our technician.
Your patient's satisfaction is our prime concern. At the end of treatment we ensure that satisfaction has been achieved before offering final advice and returning the patient to your continuing care.

New Cone Beam CT Scanner
Belmore Dental Studio are delighted to inform you of a new service which we can offer to referring dentists. A recent installation of the Carestream Kodak 90003D cone beam CT scanner has added a whole new dimension to digital diagnostic dentistry. Traditional CT scanners have evolved for analysing large areas within the body and subsequently the radiographic dose is higher. The Carestream Kodak 90003D has been designed specifically for dentistry to focus on smaller areas. It is now much easier to justify taking these 3-dimensional images as they represent approximately 70% of the radiation dose as a standard OPG.
There are many applications for these 3-dimensional images such as planning for implants and minor oral surgery. The image resolution is also good enough to assess complex root canal systems before or after endodontic treatment. Another advantage of this product is that the software for viewing the images is distributed free of charge. You can therefore view and manipulate these images from your own practice. The focused Field Of View technology will allow for specific areas to be examined. A standard image will show 1/3 of an arch whilst three images are taken to show a full arch. The software will take these three images and stitch them together to show a full arch in 3 dimensions.
If you think this service would be an advantage to your own practice and would like to discuss this further then please give me a call. Alternatively if you would rather see the machine in action then we will happy to arrange this for you.
