Patient Referrals for ICE – School of Implant Dentistry
If you would like to register for an implant treatment at the ICE School of Implant Dentistry, you will need to be referred by your General Dental Practitioner.
Once you have been referred to ICE, you will have a free initial consultation with one of our Directors. Following this, you will start your treatment and the price will be subsidised on a training basis.
For further information on the implant treatment under the ICE School of Implant Dentistry, see our Patient Information Leaflet.
Please note that any cases that are not suitable for our students will be treated by the directors.

Patient Support & Treatment at ICE
Treatment plans involving dental implants are unique for each individual and the timing, cost, and delivery of care will be customised to suit.
From initial consultation, treatment planning, implant placement through to the restorative treatment stage and aftercare, we are here to support you every step of the way. A dedicated patient coordinator is on hand to answer any questions and will help with all aspects of treatment and discuss procedures in detail so our patients know exactly what to expect and what recovery may be like.
Following the completion of treatment, it is imperative to follow an improved hygiene regime at home to maintain good oral health and help the longevity of the implants. This includes regular dental maintenance appointments with a dentist and/or a hygienist every three to six months so the health of the soft tissue, bone levels and integrity of the implant can be reviewed.
