During a dental examination, we will assess your oral health, advise you on the care and treatment you require, in addition to checking for cancer.


You can expect a dentist to do several things during your dental examination appointment:


  • Examine the health of your teeth and gums
  • If necessary, an X-ray of your teeth (please note this will incur an additional charge)
  • Treat any minor problems
  • The dental exam includes evaluating your risk of developing other dental problems and checking your face, neck and mouth for abnormalities.

For more complex issues that require more time, you may be booked for a follow-up, or referred to another specialist.
