Checkups at Elwood Dental Group

Although you should always see your dentist if you experience dental pain or bleeding gums, you should also maintain regular checkups. We at Elwood Dental Group recommend having a checkup and professional clean every 6 months.

As you've probably heard before 'Prevention is the best cure!'

When having regular visits like this, it allows us to identify problems before they become established and help fix them before they become expensive problems.

Our Prevention Philosophy


We do a wide range of preventative dentistry, as we believe this is the most honest form of treatment and results in the best outcomes for you.  Head over to our Preventative Services Page which has more information about our preventative services.

We may be able to do some dental sealants to coat the top of the back teeth and protect them from decay.  Or we may be able to help with identifying some habits that you can take action on to protect your teeth for the long term.

What To Expect


Dental check-ups have come a long way since the olden days of dentistry. We aim to get a purely diagnostic insight into your oral health and let you know of any problems that may be starting and how we can manage them.

We can use clinically diagnostic radiology to assess the condition of your teeth on a comprehensive level, and may be able to spot something you may have missed when you've looked wide mouth at your mirror!

We make you comfortable with our friendly staff and relaxed environment and we're here to help you.


So head over to our Contact page and make a booking! We'll love to see you.
