A great example of a Smile Check'

I’ve been an advocate of ‘smile checks’ for many years, to be used IN ADDITION to the medical history questionnaire, as a separate document, introduced at a separate time in the patient journey and, finally, to be used with all recalls, no matter what the age or appearance.
This is a lovely example of the genre, used by Steve Maskill and the team at Oakley Dental in North Manchester.
