We often get asked a lot of questions when it comes to what we do, how we operate and more, so we wanted to create this short article with answers to some of our most common questions.
What is RW Perio?
RW Perio is a specialist periodontal clinic founded by Dr Reena Wadia. We provide specialist treatment for periodontitis, gum recession and crown lengthening.
How can you refer?
The easiest way to refer is via the website. Just need to go here.
The process is fast, simple and effective. You can also email us on [email protected] or call 020 7112 9036.
What is the average waiting time for appointments?
This can vary, but it’s usually two weeks. However, if your patient does require an urgent appointment, we can aim to make special provision.
How will you keep me updated?
We work around you. Usually for most referrers, this is via email however we can work how you prefer. We’ll keep you up to date at every point – when we receive the referral, when the patient books in and all the clinical stages thereafter.
How long do patients usually remain with you?
Once a treatment is complete, depending on the situation, we usually keep them on here for a year for maintenance. But after that, we’ll discharge them back to your care for long term maintenance, or if you prefer, we can also look after them here.
What should my patient expect during the First appointment?
The first appointment is the specialist consultation and usually takes up to 60 minutes and we discuss the patient’s main concerns. We complete a detailed assessment, take radiographs, and then also go through the proposed treatment plan. Appointments are booked in on the day and the patient will receive a clinical report by the end of the day.
Can I attend with my patient?
Yes, you can attend with your patient. Just let us know and we can make special provision.
Will Dr. Reena see my patients personally?
Yes, Dr. Reena will be involved throughout the treatment plan and her team work directly under her specialist prescription. Our team of specialists and hygienists all work together to provide the best care for your patient.
Do you offer finance plans?
Yes, subject to approval from our third-party finance provider we offer finance plans to all patients and payments can be split over 3, 6 or 10 months. The finance plan is interest-free. To give you an example for a severe generalised periodontitis case, you’re looking at around £200 a month, over 10 months.
