The referral journey

Referrals at a glance


Once we receive your referral, we’ll contact your patient for their examination. If they have been referred for NHS treatment, we’ll determine their IOTN eligibility.


We’ll go through their options, whether that is NHS treatment, private or a combination of both. At this stage they will receive a comprehensive treatment plan. NHS patients may need to join a waiting list.


At the end of their treatment, we’ll let you know the outcome. Our specialists will take care of retention, so you can rest assured their new smile is in safe hands.

Your patient’s needs are paramount. Refer them to a team of orthodontic specialists you can trust. Portman Smile Clinic is built on experience and excellence.
