Quick tip
  • If your dentist gives you advice about daily dental care like teeth brushing techniques and how often you should floss, write it down. It takes time to build a new habit – some say 21 days or more. In the meantime, here’s a handy idea. Stick your note about your new dental care routine on your bathroom mirror as a daily reminder.


01. How much does a dental check-up cost?
The price of an exam and x-rays check-up is 1000. From time-to-time we have special pricing and offers too.
02. What if I need extra work done? Do you have flexible payment options?
If you need a filling or an important dental treatment your dentist will let you know. You can talk through the options together and get your dentist’s advice on the best treatment. We accept a wide range of payment methods that includes debit/credit card and online transfer.
03. Will it hurt?
Having an exam and x-rays dental check-up shouldn’t hurt at all. Occasionally, if one of the instruments touches a tender spot in your mouth, you could experience some minor discomfort. Most people won’t need an injection for a routine dental check-up.
04. I feel nervous about going to the dentist. What can I do?
Feeling nervous is okay. A lot of people feel that way about going to the dentist. But visiting the dentist doesn’t have to be stressful. With us, you can relax. We help put you at ease and give you all the information you need to ensure you know what’s going on with your oral health. When you book an appointment or visit, let us know how you’re feeling. We’ll do all we can to help you feel relaxed.
05. What are standard dental x-rays?
Our standard dental x-rays are known as bitewing x-rays. They get their name because of the wing shape of the plastic device you bite down on to keep the x-ray film in place. At an exam and x-rays check-up you’ll usually have one bitewing x-ray taken on each side of your mouth. These help dentists to see what’s happening with your molars, or large back teeth. They’re also useful for checking for decay that’s hiding between your molars. You can ask your dentist to take panoramic x-rays as well, if they’re available at your practice. These show a full view of your whole mouth on one single x-ray. Panoramic x-rays are useful for diagnosing invisible problems like impacted teeth, jaw bone abnormalities, benign cysts, tumours, infections, abscesses and fractures.
06. Why do I need a dental check-up each year?
If you only visit the dentist in an emergency or when you’re in pain, it can easily become something you try to avoid. But having a routine dental check-up means you’re less likely to need to see an emergency dentist. You’ll also probably spend less money at the dentist over time. That’s because regular preventative care helps to diagnose and treat potential dental problems early. It’s a vital part of staying on top of your oral and general health.
07. Why does it take longer the first time I see a new dentist?
Your first appointment may take a little longer. That’s because your oral health is our priority. And that means we need to make sure we have all the details we need when we meet you for the first time. When we have that information, and understand you and your concerns, we can successfully care for all your oral health needs.
08. If I need a filling will the dentist do it at the same time?
A second appointment is normally made for any fillings you might need. In some cases, if you only need a small filling and the dentist has time, it can be done in the same appointment.
09. What else do I need to do to look after my oral health?
Taking care of your oral health should be as important as anything else you do for your overall wellness and general health. We recommend daily healthy habits and regular visits to the dentist. For optimum oral health:
  • Practice good oral hygiene habits at home including brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing once a day
  • Book hygiene visits with an oral hygienist or oral health therapist twice each year
  • Book routine exam and x-rays visits with your dentist once each year
10. How often should I get an exam and x-rays check-up?
We recommend you book a routine check-up at least once a year as a part of your overall oral health care. It’s important to visit your dentist regularly even if you’re not in pain or you don’t have any specific concerns.
