    It is beholden to the general dental practitioner to refer patients for whom (s)he feels that treatment could be carried out to a higher standard, or more efficiently and effectively, by another dentist. In addition, patients are entitled to a referral for a second opinion at any time. This paper discusses the responsibilities of the referring dentist and those of the dentist to whom the patient has been referred. CLINICAL RELEVANCE: The experience of clinicians varies, so referral to another dentist may be appropriate if the patient's dental practitioner considers that treatment might be more effectively carried out by another dentist.
