Dental Check-ups

Good oral hygiene is a precursor for a healthy smile, and that's why our dental check-up is not just a quick look over - it involves an essential 13 point dental health check.

We are now accepting new private patients to join our surgery for routine dental check-ups as well as emergency appointments.

With 50 years of experience behind us, we can offer you a range of general dental treatments like dental check-ups, hygienist services and white fillings. We are now accepting new patients on a private basis and offer bespoke dental membership plans.

For your convenience, we offer appointments on Saturdays, late evenings and lunchtimes as well as family appointments.

All appointments are on a first-come, first serve basis.

How frequently should I have a routine dental check-up?


A routine dental examination is generally between 3 and 12 months, and our recommendations will be based on guidelines issued by an independent body NICE (National Institute for Clinical Excellence). Your dietary habits and how you look after your gums and teeth at home are a decisive factor in the frequency of dental check-ups.




I don't have any pain, so why do I need a routine dental check-up?


That’s great news that you don’t have any pain, however, unlike toothache or sensitivity, gum disease often doesn’t cause pain or discomfort, but if gum disease is left untreated at the first stage of gingivitis, it can develop into periodontitis, which is much more severe and can lead to tooth loss. Did you know that toothache develops over a long time sometimes months? Once a cavity is formed it slowly deteriorates to the stage where it results in severe pain leading to either tooth loss or more expensive and extensive treatment such as Root Canal Treatment (RCT) and large fillings. Neglecting dental check-ups usually leads to pain and more difficult treatments in the future, so it’s best to deal with problems beforehand, or, if possible, prevent them entirely.
