New Patient CONSULTATION
Regular six monthly oral examinations are fundamental to excellent dental health. Some low risk patients with no cavities should still be visiting their dentist at least once every 12 months. These check-ups should be complemented with optimal hygiene at home and with our hygienist in the practice.
At Coulsdon dental Clinic, our experienced dentist with advanced skills approaches each assessment to tailor to your individual needs. You can also choose from preferential times – early mornings, late evenings or weekends. That means no need to miss school or work!
Enjoy a comprehensive health check
During every dental check-up we carry out an 8-point oral health check. We look at the health and function of your teeth, gums and jaw to make sure your oral health is the best it can be.
Check for mouth cancer
All our dentists will check for mouth cancer. So if we notice anything unusual we can refer you to a specialist doctor for further tests and to confirm a diagnosis. As with many cancers, the earlier mouth cancer is identified the better your chances are of a full recovery.
Full inter oral exam
Often gum disease gives you no symptoms until it’s too late, and then your tooth has to be removed. So during your dental check-up, our dental clinicians screen your mouth for signs of gum disease, and give advice on how to address it.
Bespoke Treatment plan
Bespoke to you and based on your lifestyle, your dentist will provide you advice on diet and ways to keep your mouth, teeth and gums healthy.

Why choose a private check-up over an NHS check-up?
As per NHS contract, we are restricted to deliver a set number of treatments and see only a certain number of patients every year. So when we are unable to take anymore NHS patients, our private check-ups allows patients to be seen.
It also enables you to fit in your appointments around your lifestyle – meaning you never have to miss work or school. Are check-ups important?
Yes, we recommend 6 monthly check-ups with optimal oral hygiene at home.
Do new patients have to get full examinations?
In our experience, a full oral examination is important as it allows us to assess your dental health and screen for oral cancer. Without a check-up; we won’t be able to diagnose a treatment plan.
What will happen at my first visit?
You will be welcomed in to the practice by our helpful staff, followed by an introduction to your dentist. You will have dedicated time to raise any concerns about your oral health with the dentist. Upon a thorough check-up, your dentist will show you the digital images of your mouth on a big LCD screen and discuss a treatment plan, if there is a need for further treatment.
