How to make a referral:

It is important to include the following information. This helps us to assess the appointment needs of the patient and ensures a smooth communication between referrer and the Peppermint Team. Information required includes:

  • Patient Name, Address and D.OB
  • Patient Contact Details including phone & email
  • Medical History including BMI and relevant social history
  • Procedure Required
  • Intravenous / Inhalational Sedation
  • Radiographs
  • Your Name and Practice Address
  • Your Contact Details including email 
  • It’s simple to refer, just download our referral form using the link below. Regrettably, we cannot accept verbal or faxed referrals without support of a written referral.
     
 

Panoral Referrals:

If you have a patient who requires a panoral radiograph, this also can be referred by downloading our OPG referral form using the link below. Once the referral has been received, a member of our team will contact your patient to arrange a mutually convenient appointment. They will be asked to complete a medical history upon arrival and the entire visit should take no longer than 10 minutes. The panoral can be sent instantly via email, or we are happy to provide on a disc or printed version if preferred.
