Dr. Longbottom is committed to using implant systems of the highest quality and that are scientifically proven over time. There are many new untested implant systems on the market. Dr. Longbottom regularly runs continuing education for dental professionals. If you are a beginner or experienced with implant dentistry, expand your knowledge by attending one of Dr. Longbottom’s courses. Dr. Longbottom is a registered provider with the NZDA for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points.
Dental Implants are now a proven and established method of restoring missing teeth. They should always be considered a possible treatment option for the edentulous patient. For the fully edentulous they are the only alternative to full dentures.
As consumers become increasingly aware of implant treatment it is likely that you will receive an increasing number of enquiries from your own patients. If you require detailed information about implant procedures or have a specific clinical problem or patient referral please contact me or download our referral for treatment form.
Referring a patient is easy. You can make contact with the practice by letter, telephone, fax or e-mail.
Following your referral we will arrange an appointment at a convenient time to suit your patient. Should you wish to speak to Dr. Longbottom before referring a patient or to discuss any aspects of implant care please do not hesitate to phone. If you have any current radiographs of your patient, especially an OPT, please provide them before the initial consultation with your patient.
Following the initial consultation you will receive a consultation report and a further one when treatment planning is complete.
