Why Are You Referring Me to Another Dentist?
Usually I refer a dental patient to another more specialized dentist when I feel that their special expertise might offer either a better experience or a higher likiehood of success than if I performed their procedure. As a general dentist I am somewhat of a "Jack of all Trades" and although I am quite competent at performing most dental procedures, there are procedures that I am not comfortable doing. Some examples of these would be : Extraction of impacted wisdom teeth, Most biopsy procedures, Full thickness flap periodontal procedures, and placement of dental implants.
