Check-up Appointments

Dental check-ups are necessary as soon as a person’s teeth start erupting in their mouth.






Regular dental examinations are a must for preventative dental care. Even with good oral hygiene you can still develop dental problems which you may not be able to see yourself. Regular 6-month checkups will mean any problems will be caught early by one of our experienced dentists.
