Routine dental health reviews
Our focus at Newcastle Dental Practice is on preventative dental care, designed to help you avoid dental problems so you can achieve and maintain a healthy mouth. We provide routine and specialist dental care to patients across Hanley, Tunstall, Newcastle-under-Lyme and Stoke-on-Trent and further. Regular dental health reviews are recommended in order to spot concerns early, before they progress into more complex problems.
Routine dental health reviews are usually conducted every 6 or 12 months, depending on your requirement. Your dentist will recommend an appropriate recall frequency as required to maintain your personal oral health.
During each routine dental health assessment we’ll review:
- Signs of tartar build up and decay
- Identify any chips and cracks
- Health of gums
- Condition and functionality of any existing restorations such as fillings, crowns, bridges or dentures
- Jaw alignment and clicking
- Signs of stress and teeth grinding
- Oral cancer screening
We also recommended regular visits to our hygiene team for a thorough clean of your teeth and gums, stain removal, and oral health advise in order to support a comprehensive home care regime.

Signed up as my current Dentist has shut down and I got an appointment that was convienient for me. I am quiet nervous when it comes to Dentist but i was treated brilliantly. Dr Alka Nathwani was very friendly and professional and talked me through everything that was going on which made it alot easier. Great place, Friendly staff, Good price. I would recommend.
Wouldn't go anywhere else. Alka and her team are so accommodating and friendly.

Everyone from the receptionists to the dental staff are all very friendly and professional.
I am terrified of the dentist and suffer with anxiety as it is, my whole body was shaking the entire car journey, but once I was there the woman were so friendly and completely calmed me down (They are like a big family and they are all happy and upbeat), they spoke to me throughout the procedure so I knew what to expect, and I'm honestly looking forward to my next appointment !!! These guys are experts.

I am in my sixties and have been a client for about two and a half years. I have always been apprehensive of dentists due to childhood painful experiences. I had also always been aware of my bad breath which knocked my confidence every day. I could never understand it as I cleaned and flossed my teeth regularly and rigorously. I thought the reason behind my bad breath was due to me having 'rotten' tonsils as a result of many throat infections and tonsillitis bouts as a child. I even paid, some years ago, to see a consultant gastroenterologist at the nuffield hospital for help and advice. I even considered, (stupidly - I know), drinking diluted bleach to clean the back of my throat so I could speak to people with confidence without holding my hand over my mouth or chewing gum all the time. I visited Newcastle Dentist following an advert I heard on the local radio. My bottom teeth were crooked and my top could have been straighter. Thank goodness I did!! I saw Dr Alka Nathwani. She ex-rayed all around my mouth. She said that the reason for my bad breath was the fact that I had crooked wisdom teeth which needed to come out immediately. She said that no amount of brushing would have been able to remove all the built up tartar which had accumulated around those wisdom teeth throughout the years. She emailed the hospital, there and then, whilst I was with her to ask for me to be referred as a national health patient. The removal of the wisdom teeth needed general anaesthetic. Within 3 months my teeth were out. My bad breath was gone forever! With regard to my crooked teeth - she arranged for me to wear Invisalign braces, which I paid for over an interest free period. I am nearing the end of this procedure and my teeth look amazing. I have received personal observation from Dr Alka at every appointment during this time. I visit the hygienist (Jenna) every six months. Before, at my previous dentist, a check up and clean would take about 5 minutes. Now my check up and clean takes up to 45 minutes. I leave the chair feeling refreshed and valued. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Dr Alka from the bottom of my heart and also her staff - from the helpful, pleasant and professional receptionists, through to all the dental nurses. Throughout our life we all take our professionals for granted because we either pay for their service directly (private medicine) or indirectly (our national health service) but when we receive good service which in my opinion, in this case, has surpassed all expectations I would personally like to thank Dr Alka Nathwani for changing my life for ever.
Had two implants by Kris exellent professional service, could not be more happier. And thank you Alka for your smile and frendliness.Yvonne
Absolutely SUPERB service!! Couldn’t recommend highly enough. Couldn’t have been more helpful- has completely eased my nerves on going to the dentist. Alka and her colleagues were fantastic.

Great dentist, very friendly. I was very nervous and hadn't been to a dentist for years, I needed 2 x route canal work and they made it as comfortable as possible and had a lot of patients with me. They also split the cost over 12 months. Thanks again :-)
I want to say a huge thank you to Dr. Elizabeth, she is a great doctor and a very professional. She has magical hands. Sincerely, Russian Max
They are incredible. Truly. They could not be more kind and efficient. I could not recommend more highly.
Absolutely amazing!! I truly hate the dentist and always fear going, if you are looking for a dentist to make you feel as comfortable as possible this is defo the one. Extremely friendly staff who are willing to invest their time by explaining in detail how to get the best from your teeth without lecturing you, they also explain what they are going to do. I had to have a filling and didn’t feel any pain at all, the aftercare is amazing and they will help anyone in any situation. Very very highly recommended.
EXCELLENT! got me in within a couple of days, fast service. god rid of the problem within seconds.
I joined this practice a few months ago. They are very professional and caring. Their expertise extends to enhanced specialist skills which are very impressive and as I was very much in need of a course of treatment I have experienced treatment from Drs Alka, Emily and Vish - all excellent and highly recommended. Thank-you.
Excellent treatment from Dentist Dr. Emily and Nurse Sophie Ellis-Beeston. Lovely atmosphere (do you call it bedside manner at a Dentist?) Definitely the most painless Dentist I have ever visited and I could not recommend them more.
I don't have words enough to describe my experience here,everything was to superlative starting with lovely nurses from reception,a very warm wellcome,very helpful,pleasant presences,I had a tooth extraction and Dr Teddy,was amazing,I didnt feel any pain,everything was going in a high standard of professionalism,congratulations to all team a well done to everyone!!!I definitely come back with a good confidence!
Absolutely fantastic dental practice. Highly recommended. I moved here a few months ago. Dr Alka and her staff are brilliant.
After years of hiding my smile and being ashamed of the state of my teeth, caused by a bad accident in a swimming pool at 9 years old and a life long MAJOR fear of dentists and lack of sleep for even a check up, these guys have totally transformed me. I can smile openly now and have not had a single worry of going to the dentist despite all of the work they have done over the last 3 months, safe to say they have cured my fear and i would, and have already recommended them to several people. I cannot rate you all highly enough. Thank you to every single one of you at the practice for literally changing my life!!
Just had a scale snd polish carried out by Jenna and Molly. It was so lovely to get treatment from people who seemed to take pride in their work and genuinely care about the patient. Thank you
Friendly, helpful staff and outstanding service throughout. I'm very glad I chose this practice upon moving to the area and will continue to use them in the time I live here. Would highly recommend.
