We have over 100 referring dentists and have been serving dental practices around Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire.
We have built up good relationships with our referring dentists and also offer advice to them on request.
Please see some of our referring dentist testimonials below.
I have been using UK Dental Specialists for specialist referrals for about 5 years and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for specialist care in any field of dentistry.
The referral process is very simple as you just need to either complete a secure online form from the website or download an pdf form. Once you have referred the patient you will receive a confirmation by email that the referral has gone through and later a confirmation email that the patient has booked an appointment at the practice.
After the treatment is completed you will receive a letter which clearly states everything about the treatment provided and follow up care needed.
The reception staff are very friendly, professional and helpful.
I’ve mainly referred for Endodontic treatment to Claudio Peru and his team and have never been let down by the service and quality of the Endodontic treatment provided with no negative feedback from any of my referral patients.
I would highly recommend this practice if you wish to get top quality specialist treatment.

I work in a local practice to UKDS and for this I feel extremely lucky. I feel more relaxed seeing patients as I know if there is any situation I feel is outside of my comfort zone, be it diagnosis or treatment my patients will be seen quickly and looked after well. I had a patient who had fallen and several of her teeth had moved and required specialist input on the same day, they managed to accommodate to see her on the same day even though they had a full list and there was no obligation to do so. They have also given me the opportunity to shadow one of their specialist dentist. If I want a second opinion I am able to directly message the specialist and they are quick to reply. I feel that we work as a team with the focus around best care for the patients. Patient are seen usually within a week or two of referral and they all speak highly of their experience at the practice.
I have always been very confident and comfortable to refer to UKDS knowing that I am doing what is best for my patient in the best possible way. The completed treatment reports are detailed, comprehensive and sent promptly after treatment.
Occasionally, I have been faced with a patient in excruciating pain who required urgent treatment on the day. The team at UKDS have been most accommodating and have gone out of their way to treat patients – lunch time, after hours. I am most thankful for this.
Dentistry is a stressful and hard profession and when you have a reliable, caring team of specialists to rely on, it makes it more manageable. The service has been invaluable and I highly recommend this practice. All the staff are extremely kind and friendly and my patients have commented on this on numerous occasions.
Dr Peru and his team have provided dentists with regular news updates, lectures and learning opportunities. This has been most informative and enjoyable and I have not experienced this with other referral centres.
This practice differs from other practices as ALL aspects of the treatment, staff, efficiency, reliability, modern/upmarket environment can be rated as outstanding. UKDS team were the most proactive leaders during the initial phase of the COVID pandemic and lockdown. They researched, guided and advised the dental profession on how to open their doors again, in order to welcome patients back into not only UKDS practice, but also into our clinics.
Thank you to the UKDS Specialists and team for an outstanding service.

Patients are always contacted promptly after referring, often within an hour or so. As referrers, we are kept up to date with what treatment our patients are having with discharge letters being sent. If the clinicians at UKDS feel an alteration to the original treatment plan is required they will contact us to check if we are happy for them to go ahead with this or whether we would prefer to do the treatment ourself.
UKDS sets itself apart with its speed of service, both when we contact them with queries and also them arranging appointments for patients. When I have had patients in pain who I have found difficulties in diagnosing, they have seen the patient the same day to help despite having a packed diary themselves. Their communication is great and I always feel I know what is happening with the patients I refer. Phones are answered promptly with no frustrating waits to get through.
Patients consistently report their satisfaction to us with the service and treatment they received at UKDS.
I would definitely recommend UKDS and, in fact, when I recently had trouble with my own tooth I contacted the practice who were only too happy to help.
It is a pleasure to have UKDS in our local area and re-assuring to know they are there to help in the cases beyond general practice or even to lean on for advice. ‘’
I would be happy to do a video testimonial.
