Dentist Referrals

Occasionally, a situation arises where the dental care needs of our patient exceed the scope of our practice. Just as not all doctors can effectively treat all health conditions, not all general dentists can provide the specialized care needed for certain advanced or even cosmetic dental conditions and situations. When this occurs, dental referrals provide an opportunity for us to entrust the care of our patients to another dental practitioner who does have the tools, equipment, and specialized training to effectively treat the problems our patient is experiencing.

Patients may have some concerns over dental referrals, so it’s important for Dental Smiles of NC to explain why the referral is necessary and that our patients are seeing specializations within the field of dentistry, including:

  • Endodontists
  • Prosthodontists
  • Oral Surgeons
  • Orthodontists
  • Pediatric Dentists
  • Periodontists


To be included in our referral list, kindly send an email to along with the insurances you accept. This will facilitate effective communication with your practice and enable us to find a suitable specialist that meets our practice needs.
