Endodontic referrals

Dr Jeremy Thompson

BDS (London), PG Dip (endodontics) GDC Number 68494

Endodontics is a complex and demanding field. It makes sense to refer the more challenging cases to a practitioner with the knowledge, skills and equipment that are so often needed to complete treatment successfully.

Jeremy Thompson gained his Postgraduate Certificate in endodontics in 2011 and his Postgraduate Diploma in 2016, both from the University of Chester. Jeremy is a member of the British Endodontic Society and has 20+ years of general practice experience.

Jeremy uses a state of the art Carl Zeiss operating microscope to aid in treating endodontic cases.

He welcomes referrals for endodontics such as those cases that fall into categories 2 and 3 of the AAE guidelines. Visit www.aae.org/guidelines and click on ‘Case Difficulty Assessment Form’ for an overview.

While Jeremy is not on the specialist list, he hopes to provide a more convenient, local service for the benefit of patients and referring practitioners alike, rather than needing to refer e.g. to Manchester based specialists. In the event of his feeling a particular case is beyond his skills, he’ll suggest alternative treatment or specialist referral if the referrer so wishes and will liaise with the referring practitioner fully. We have the capability of capturing images directly from the microscope which we can send by email to further aid co-diagnosis and communication.

Completed cases will be sent back to the referring practitioner for permanent restorations to be placed unless otherwise arranged but will always be returned with an intact coronal seal in place.

At Antley Villa in Accrington, Lancashire, we endeavour to see emergencies as soon as we possibly can – if not the same day, within 24 hours.
