For Dentists

Why Refer Your Patient to Vermilion?

Vermilion offers multi-disciplinary care for the benefit of your patients. In many cases, your patient will require the input of two or three clinicians to ensure the best possible outcome.

We aim to cooperate with referring practitioners and build clinical partnerships. We welcome all dental colleagues to visit our clinic to meet with their patients and observe their implant surgery, as well as discuss cases on an ongoing basis, resulting in a truly collaborative and open approach.

Dentist CPD & Dental Implant Courses

We are delighted to be hosting an online programme of CPD courses throughout 2021. The programme will cover specialist areas in dentistry, including periodontics, endodontics, orthodontics and implants, as well as oral surgery and implant nursing courses.

As part of the programme, our own clinicians will be delivering material, as well as a series of guest speakers, who will be presenting on core CPD topics on their specialist areas.

Safeguarding Children with Dr Graeme Wright, Thursday 15th April

Lead consultant and honorary senior lecturer in paediatric dentistry at the Royal Hospital for Sick Children and Edinburgh Dental Institute, Dr Graeme Wright, will be hosting his session on current best practice in Children Safeguarding for the Dental Practitioner.

Dr Wright will cover the variety of cases that may present in the general dental practice, and that may raise child welfare concerns with regards to non-accidental injury and neglect. By attending, you will also learn more about the responsibilities of the dental team in recognising, responding and reporting concerns linked to non-accidental injury and neglect.
