Referral Service

Why do we need a referral practice?

Most of us see a dentist regularly and that dentist provides for our routine dental care. At BPDS we provide regular care for patients on the NHS and Privately. This is appropriate for the needs of most of us – most of the time.

However as “General Dental Practitioners (GDP)” – as the name implies – we are trained generally to cover a vast range of dental procedures. We are not working as specialists in a field. The same as a car garage may specialise in a particular manufacturer – at BPDS we have dentists who have undertaken further training in a specialised field to develop their skills.

Where treatments are simple – it may be that for the dentally aware patient treatment with a specialist would produce more desirable results.

Where treatments become complex then they may fall outside the skill set of a GDP and they may need to refer for some or all of the treatment that is needed.

At BPDS we have the ability to refer within the practice when it is most appropriate so that the treatment can be provided by the dentist with the most appropriate skills to give the best results.

We also accept referrals from local dentists for the provision of specific treatments or complex courses of treatment.

“Invisalign – Light. Crooked front teeth that had started to become more noticeable. This, in turn, started to affect my confidence.

The experience at Beaufort Park was excellent throughout. The staff, from the initial consultation, were friendly and professional. The welcoming reception staff through to the excellent dentist (Russell Gidney) have made this an (almost!) pleasurable experience!

I feel so much more confident and happy to smile again in public.

“I hated my smile in photos, I looked as though I only had about 4 teeth! 🙁

Treatments have all been explained, the team have been great & I have started to notice my teeth changing & looking good – despite not even being half way through my treatment (Invisalign Aligner 11/23). I am so happy with the progress.

Thank you! 🙂

Super, I would recommend to anyone considering treatment.

“After years of being unhappy with my crooked teeth and avoiding photographers if at all possible.

I decided to seek corrective treatment at the grand old age of 55 in order to be able to smile at my daughters up coming wedding. After a chat with the Beaufort Dental practice I decided on a course of CFast treatment. In a few short months I was thrilled with the result. Straight teeth which were so much easier to care for and which looked 100 per cent more attractive

The cost was manageable too and I paid at intervals during the treatment. I wish I’d done it years ago.


“I did not like my teeth so didn’t smile.

Invisalign – absolutely brilliant! Very professional team, extremely happy with the results!”

“Even though my oral hygiene has always been excellent I have for many years hated my teeth which were discoloured + the crowns rather mismatched.

Dr Russell Gidney was the first dentist I had confidence in to correct my problems. He showed great empathy, kindness + professional skill. He made me feel completely at ease.

His dental nurses + admin staff are all lovely. The outcome is better than I expected, I now have a lovely smile!”

Pamela C

“I recently had cosmetic work on my teeth carried out by Russell at the surgery. he explained everything in detail and I am overjoyed with the results. The difference it has made is amazing and I thoroughly recommend them. The staff are very helpful too!”
