Do I need a referral for treatment?
To ensure the best possible care, we recommend that you consult with your general dentist before pursuing specialist care from an Oral Surgeon. In this case, your dentist will send a referral form to our office with the necessary background details for your treatment such as your history and recent x-rays (saving you both time and money).
Should this not be available, individual patients can indeed seek out Dr. Wallace’s services without a referral from their General Dentist. Rest assured, a thorough medical background will be taken regardless of whether you are a referral or not.
