Dental Assessments

dental assessments



At Platt & Common Dental Practice we offer a full range of NHS and private treatment options, including free NHS treatment for certain categories of patients. Reception can help you if you are unsure if you are able to receive free NHS treatment or not.

What to expect


Your first appointment will be for an initial examination, which will check:


  • The current health of your teeth
  • The current health of your gums a soft tissue check (including an oral cancer check)
  • Recording of your level of oral hygiene
  • Recording of your level of decay and risk of future decay
  • We will also listen to any problems or concerns you may have regarding your teeth or gums.


We deliberately avoid carrying out any treatment at this appointment as this allows us to spend the time assessing your oral health and addressing any concerns you may have.
