How often should I visit the dentist for a check-up?

Prevention is always better than cure so at CDC Dental in Sydney CBD, we recommend visiting the dentist for a checkup and clean every six months. This allows us to catch anything that might be a concern early which means we can intervene and generally this saves you on costlier treatment down the track.
