How often should I visit the dentist?

We recommend visiting the dentist every 6 months to ensure any issues with your oral health can be addressed quickly. If problems are left untreated, you may find that you have a toothache or other issues that will not go away without help from a dentist.

If it has been a long time since you last visited the dentist, don’t be nervous. We offer a calm and welcoming environment, free from judgement. So you can focus on getting your oral health back on track. And if you’re in pain, don’t delay treatment. Dental pain will not go away on its own, so it’s always best to visit the dentist for a checkup.
