take x rays of your teeth if indicated

tell you how to keep your mouth, teeth and gums healthy
If you need treatment, your dentist will:-
Explain your options, detailing nhs treatments and alternative options if feasible
Give you a treatment plan, detailing what treatment is needed and an estimate of the costs.
