Frequently Asked Questions

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-up allows all 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.

In our experience, full oral examination is important as it allows us to assess your dental health and screen for oral cancer. Look at it this way, without a check-up; we won’t be able to diagnose the treatment plan.

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 Throrugh 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.

The dentist will take digital x-rays with your permission to check in between the teeth for any hidden decay. (S)he may also take a few photographs of your teeth with a camera. Your Check-Up includes 2 Digital X-Rays. You will then be asked to look at the screen in front of you and will be talked through your x-rays and photographs.

You may be asked some questions and be asked for your opinion. This is the opportunity for your dentist to give you a thorough breakdown of what is going on in your mouth.

We pride ourselves on ethical and transparent pricing, that’s why we carry a Best Available Price for all our treatments. With this plan you pay for the treatment when you have it without any tie-ins or monthly payment plans.

Essentials Treatment will cost you £35 and are fixed irrespective of which dentist you see.
