32Whites dental health assessment


Current recommendations suggest that adults and children should visit their dentist every six months for dental health assessments, cleaning and oral hygiene maintenance

Regular dental examinations are important as they allow us to monitor the health of the mouth and help to keep it free from tooth decay and gum disease. This can mean fewer fillings, less likelihood of toothache, more attractive teeth and a greater chance of keeping your own teeth for life.

As part of your dental examination, Drs John and Peter Mantel and Dr Shweta Pokar perform a comprehensive assessment of each patients dental health.
