Appointment Reminders & Recalls
At the end of your course of treatment, your dentist will discuss with you when you need to see the dentist again.
NHS dentists now follow guidelines issued by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) on how often patients need to see their dentist, according to their oral health needs.
It is no longer the norm for patients to have two NHS check-ups each year, if you do not need them. The Department of Health wishes NHS resources to be allocated to those who need it the most.
You can of course visit your dentist more often on a private basis if you would prefer to see your dentist more regularly regarding your oral health needs.
