About You

At East Dulwich Dental Care, we value building trust, getting to know you, and providing exceptional care. Our consultations are relaxed, unhurried, and focused on meeting your needs.

Digital X-Rays

We utilize digital x-rays when necessary to obtain a comprehensive view of your teeth and bones, enabling us to gain a deeper understanding of your oral health. Our team will thoroughly analyze these x-rays and clearly communicate our findings, ensuring that you are fully informed about your dental condition. Your understanding and involvement in your oral care journey are important to us.

Digital Photography

We will take digital photos of your teeth and smile. Capturing these helps us in treatment planning and is an essential part of modern day dental records.

Examination of Teeth

A thorough assessment of the health, function and appearance of your teeth and any existing restorations

Gum Health

We will carry out an extensive gum assessment of the foundation of your teeth. We may recommend a treatment programme with one of our Hygiene Therapists after this who may also offer bespoke home care products.

Bite Records

We will record and review your bite; how your teeth meet and move across each other. We do this so that we identify the correct function of any restorative treatment we may plan together.

Jaw Joint

We assess your external jaw joints because the regular occurrence of headaches and migraines is often closely related to ‘bite’ issues such as teeth grinding during sleep.

Internal Soft Tissue

We assess the health of your tongue, cheeks and palate, and carry out a comprehensive Oral Cancer Screening at each consultation.

External Soft Tissue

We assess the glands and lymph nodes around your neck and lips, noting facial profile and any abnormalities.


We will discuss your existing diet and lifestyle, including factors such as smoking and alcohol consumption, which can affect the health of your teeth. We will also ask you about your general health and medication.
