Referring your first patient to Devonshire House for a CBCT Scan
In accordance with guidance issued by the European Commission, we have adopted the latest best practice which requires dentists who refer patients for CBCT scanning to have a service level agreement in place with their chosen CBCT scanning referral centre.
Devonshire House Service Level Agreement
The service level agreement for our CBCT scanning service ensures compliance with best practice guidance. This necessary agreement will allow you to refer your patients for CBCT scans with appropriate justification. This simply requires you and your colleagues at your practice to:
confirm that you refer in accordance with published guidance criteria
confirm that you have fulfilled the standard education requirements in the use of ionising radiation and radiation protection and
provide certification to show that you have undertaken additional training for CBCT Referrers
Please complete and return your agreement along with copies of your relevant CPD certificates as soon as practicable so that you can start to refer patients for scans. Please also complete and return a patient CBCT referral form outlining all of your requirements
How to become a certified CBCT scan referrer or reporter
If you would like to refer your patients for scans and are not yet certified, or if you woud like to learn how to report on scans, we are offering two evening lectures to help you meet the requirements of the best practice guidance:
Following attendance at one of our CBCT scan referrers lectures, or a similar lecture elsewhere, and submission of your service level agreement and certificates we will be able to accept your referrals.
Please outline all of your requirements and sign and return the form by email to our Dental Radiographer, Natasha Yeungscans@dh-dental.co.uk
Please note that incomplete forms may cause a delay in providing an appointment for your patient and that a dentist's signature authorising the request is required.
Your patient will be asked to pay for their scan at their appointment unless you instruct us otherwise.

The password protected images and viewing software will be sent to you using MailBigFile.com. A separate email containing the password will be sent to you from Natasha Yeung together with instructions on how to download and view the images.
