Keeping your smile healthy with dental check-ups

Did you know that visiting the dentist just once a year can reduce the risk of tooth decay by 60%? Regular dental check-ups are crucial for maintaining good oral health and preventing potential dental problems from becoming more serious, which is why we offer dental check-ups at all our practices nationwide.

What is a dental check-up?

A dental check-up, also known as a dental exam, is a routine appointment where a dentist assesses the health of your teeth, gums, and mouth. This includes examining your teeth for signs of decay, evaluating the health of your gums, and discussing your overall oral health and habits.

What happens during a check-up?

During a private dental check-up, your dentist will:


Examine your teeth, gums, and mouth to check for any problems or signs of decay


Ask about your general health and any dental concerns or issues you may have had since your last visit


Provide advice on your diet, smoking and alcohol habits, and teeth-cleaning techniques


Schedule your next check-up appointment, if necessary

Routine check-ups FAQs

How often should I have a check-up?

Your dentist will recommend a schedule for your next check-up based on the results of your current appointment. This can range anywhere from three months to two years, or up to one year if you are under the age of 18.

What if I have concerns in between check-ups?

If you experience any dental problems or concerns in between check-ups, it's important to contact your mydentist practice and schedule an appointment. If you have a dental emergency outside of normal working hours, contact your practice for instructions on how to access emergency dental care.

Do you offer NHS dental checkups?

We are currently prioritising private dental patients, however, we might be able to offer NHS treatment under certain circumstances, including to those under 18. You should speak to your local practice to learn more.
