Our Dental Health Examinations are very comprehensive and, at each appointment, we assess all areas of your teeth and gums as well as looking at your overall health. The structure of our Dental Health Examinations to assess 17 key areas follows:
Important areas we discuss at each appointment
How healthy you feel your teeth and gums are
If you have any dental problems to report
The impact of diet on your dental health
The impact of your lifestyle on your dental health
A progress check from your previous appointments
How satisfied you are with the appearance of your teeth and gums
If you have any medical issues which may affect your dental health or treatment
Vital checks we carry out at each appointment
Health and strength of your teeth
Health and stability of previous dental restorations
Health of the lining of your mouth (visual oral cancer check)
Health of your gums
Presence of damaging plaque
Health of your jaw
Health of your glands
Comfort and accuracy of your bite
Less often, we perform two important checks using x-rays, looking at:
The health of areas inside, under and between your teeth
Changes in bone quality
Was an amazing experience since the first appointment where I had my dental plan put in place. Was super understanding with my situation and what work I wanted to have done. All the staff I had met during my 3 appointments were very nice and provided a great service overall.

Great practice and would highly recommend!! I had been going to another dentist for a while but didn’t seem to explain anything or help me with options.
Decided to come to Eccleshill Dental. Was amazed. I had a 40 min examination and then went through all my issues. They broke it down to things that I ‘needed’ to do and then discussed things that might ...

My 1st visit at this very swish practise. All the staff were friendly and welcoming. Clare(dentist) was lovely, calming and made me feel comfortable. I can’t say anything negative and would highly recommend.

Today I went to my dentist for a filling and saw Imaan the female dentist for the 2nd time.. I just wanted to say how absolutely lovey and really calm she made me feel. She listened to what I had to say and helped me with the issues I raised a credit to the surgery thank you 🙂

I would like say a massive thank you to Karan at Eccleshill Dental for giving me the confidence to smile again.
The dental work I had done was not a straight forward procedure. My teeth needed bleaching and then a new front crown needed to be made to match their new colour.
After the course of Enlighten treatment my teeth were temporarily left patchy in ...

How often do I need to have a dental health check up?
Typically, we recommend you visit us for a dental check up every six months. However, we may suggest you book your next appointment at a longer or shorter interval, depending on your specific dental needs.
What happens if you find any issues during my examination appointment?
If we identify any problems or areas of concern during your examination, we will tell you straight away and form a bespoke treatment plan to resolve these before they become more serious. This is the main benefit of a regular dental check up, as we are able to diagnose and treat any issues quickly and effectively, before they become more costly and time consuming in the future.
How long will my dental health examination take?
Your dental health examination will usually take around 20 minutes, although it will be longer if it is your first appointment with us as this is more detailed to allow us to get to know you and your dental health.
Can I bring my young children with me?
Yes! We believe it is so important to familiarise young children with visiting the dentist and the practice surroundings from a young age, to help avoid any nerves or worries later. You can bring your children along to your appointment from the time their first teeth appear, as we can check everything is developing well.
Do I need to clean my teeth before my appointment?
Yes, please try to brush and floss before your appointment, as this will help us initially assess your teeth and gums more clearly, and makes it easier to see potential problems quicker.
