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.

Topics covered include diagnosing and treating periodontal disease, practical skills in oral surgery and more.

Composite Masterclass with Dr Jason Smithson, Friday 26th August 2022

As dentists wade through the backlog of caries post-Covid, essential restorative skills are being put to the test. Many younger colleagues may feel deskilled after two years of not cutting teeth. And many dentists are now charging ten times more for a filling as the exodus from NHS to private gathers pace.

Are your skills up to date? Are you fully aware of the advances in composite restorations and bonded dentistry in recent years? Would you benefit from taking a day out and listen to an internationally renowned guru? Press the reset button on your technique?

Vermilion – The Smile Experts has arranged to bring Dr Jason Smithson to Edinburgh on Friday 26 August for a full day Masterclass covering Direct Composite and Indirect Ceramic restorations. Six hours of free verifiable CPD exclusively for our referring colleagues: a token of our thanks for all the cases that you refer to the team at Vermilion.
