Comprehensive Examinations

A sit down meeting to explore your desires and needs followed by a detailed fifteen-point risk assessment based examination.

Is this the right treatment for you?

Dental Health Check,  personalised to your needs.

A comprehensive consultation with sufficient time to ask questions. Tailored to your needs, we can forecast issues that may need to be addressed in the future and  guide you  on how long we can continue to monitor before we should ideally intervene. This will potentially minimise your need for extensive dentalcare in the future.

Good to know

By the end of this appointment, you will have sufficient information to decide what should be monitored and what needs attention sooner, based on your risk profile.

The procedure
  • A comfortable appointment for you to ask questions and discuss your desires and needs in a plush sitting room.
  • An in depth clinical examination using high magnification to see minute detail together with the latest technology to show you what we see.
  • If simple requirements, we will discuss possible options with a potential plan.
  • If a longer plan we would invite you for a complementary discussion appointment so that you can ask further questions to help you reach a decision.
  • If complex issues we may suggest further investigations.
  • We will discuss all the options available including monitoring. Our experience in the latest dental techniques means you benefit from more bespoke solutions which will help your dentition function for longer.
  • Once you are clear what you want to do, we devise an itemised treatment plan which lets you decide how you want to budget. For larger treatment plans we write a report so that you are confident that everything has been considered.
  • Budgeting options are explored.
  • Treatment appointments are organised at the pace and length that you feel comfortable.

What our clients say

Rouein Madadi

As Tina Turner would say 'simply the best, better than all the rest'. An amazing team, so proffesional, so friendly. I wouldn't go anywhere else, when you've got the best, you don't change it.

Tom M

Integrated Dental Care is an excellent dental practice which looks after patients with outstanding care and dentistry of exceptional quality. It deserves the highest recommendation. All members of the team contribute to make the experience welcoming, friendly and extremely professional.

I’ve been seeing Dr Allan Matthews since he joined the practice. Allan clearly cares deeply about providing the very best dental treatment for you personally. He takes time to discuss your dental health in detail and find out what dental difficulties you have. He then puts great effort into considering how best to treat problems using tremendous skill and knowledge of dental techniques at the forefront of the profession. Allan explains treatment fully before beginning surgery which puts you at ease and instils confidence in knowing you are in excellent hands. I have also been impressed that he follows up on the telephone to check how you are doing after treatment, if he feels it’s necessary. This is tremendous service and a level of care which goes above and beyond what would normally be expected. On top of all this is the fact that the atmosphere in Allan’s surgery couldn’t be friendlier or more relaxed. You are always warmly welcomed.

In essence Neeraj and Allan are exceptional dentists backed by a wonderful team. I really can’t recommend this practice enough.

While I’m here I must also make special mention of Lucy in reception. Lucy is unfailingly helpful, courteous, friendly and kind both on the telephone and in the practice itself.

Alison Couser

What a lovely dental practice! The hygienist was very gentle and did a great job and the dentist gave good advice and tips. There is a relaxing atmosphere and all the staff are friendly. I would definitely recommend

Viv Walkey

The practice came highly recommended and has never failed to provide an excellent service. From the welcoming reception through a comfortable waiting room to a range of professional dental care where the highest standards are maintained. Each step of the treatment is explained thoroughly resulting in positive conclusions.

Susan Batty

I and my family have been going to Integrated Dentalcare in Edinburgh for about 17 years. Over that time we as a family have always received top class dental service. When we have had emergencies like when my son fell and damaged his front teeth they dealt with him immediately or needing to re-aline my children's teeth, again the service and treatment we received was excellent. I cannot recommend them too highly. Everyone at the practice from the dentists to the dental nurses and reception staff are always professional and good at what they do but are always very pleasant and helpful. They care about looking after your teeth and have offered good advice over the years which is why we have continued going to them for as long as we have.

Patricia Currie

After a few bad experiences with other dentists in Edinburgh, over 10 years ago I was recommended Integrated Dentalcare for the exceptional quality of the services they provide. Since then, they have been my trusted dental carers. Extremely happy with them!


My last dentist traumatised me so I was super apprehensive about going to any dentist. These guys exceeded my expectations. I have been treated with value and respect and am an active participant in my treatment plans and care. cannot recommend enough - the care is exceptional!

Nicola Goodall

I've had some bad experiences in the past when visiting previous dentists, so I've not always been that keen on getting regular checkups let alone actually having any work done on my teeth. Neeraj and his team do an incredible job of making sure everything is painless and I can't recommend them enough.

Munir Caine

I had a really positive experience here.The staff are very friendly and I deeply trust the expertise of the dentist who was gentle and kept me well informed throughout the whole consultation. This will be our new family dental practice.

Lena Johnson

Professional, caring team who provide high quality work. Always made to feel welcome when I visit. Been a patient now for over 10 years & consistently recieved great service.

Hamish Dobbie

Having suffered a bad experience with a local dentist in my early 20’s  I have always looked for a quality dental service and modern techniques/practices. I googled laser dentistry and found there was a state of the art practice in Edinburgh, intergrated dental care. Although some 170 miles from home and very nervous, I decided to travel for an initial consultation. I can honestly say following my visit, I was highly impressed with the service provided. Dr Puri and his team were fantastic. From the one to one chat with Dr Puri, where you are spoken to like a human and not just a number. All concerns are taken seriously, things explained and you are put at ease. There is no pressure. The friendly manner of the receptionist and the dental nurses were second to none.

If any one has a dental phobia, I would highly recommend Dr Puri and his team. My confidence in a dentist has returned. Thank you :)

Donald Stephenson

Integrated Dentalcare is an amazing dentist. A pleasure to do business with AND they really care about customer satisfaction. Working with Neeraj was a pleasure. Honest, caring and authentic. I would highly recommend them to anyone wishing to enhance their dental services. I wish they were located nearer to me. Integrated Dentalcare will be my first choice. The best emergency dentist Edinburgh has to offer.

Claudine Waskowycz

Excellent, friendly service by professional staff! I have been coming here for years and had several works carried out without any problems whatsoever. Always a superb job, and I would highly recommend them.

After our discussions what if I want a second opinion?

We want to ensure that you are comfortable with our advice. For large treatments or if there is any doubt, we would encourage you to seek a further opinion. This may be someone you choose or we can recommend.

plus sign open for more
My dentist has recommended a course of treatment. Can I come for a second opinion?

We often have clients who just want a second opinion. We are very happy to validate a treatment plan or perhaps suggest some out of the box solutions. Please remember that your visit is confidential so we do not report back to your dentist unless you ask us to.

plus sign open for more
I have my own dentist can I still come?

We have many clients who visit for certain aspects of dentistry. They may then choose to either stay with the practice or return to their dentist for regular care. This is very acceptable.

I don’t live in Edinburgh can I still join your practice?

Patients choose to visit us from all over the UK. The train station links close to the practice make this very convenient.

Do I have an option to spread the cost of the recall examinations?

We have a fantastic no commitment maintenance plan which allows you to spread the fees for the regular health check and hygienist treatments over one year.

I am nervous and haven’t been to the dentist in ages, what if I don’t want an examination?

We see many clients who are anxious about dental care. We will work with you to ensure that we only go as far as you are comfortable. If you want to build on the experience over a few appointments, we can do that.

What if I don’t remember everything we discussed during my visit?

Please feel free to bring someone with you to take notes. Otherwise we are always happy to clarify anything that doesn’t make sense.

What further investigations may be offered to me to help me achieve a better understanding of what is happening in my mouth?

For more complex issues we may suggest further options such as stone models of your teeth to look at your bite; a digital T-scan to look at how your jaw behaves during movement; a 3D scan to look at your jaws or full mouth photographs to show other issues which may not be obvious.

Can I get a copy of my x-rays?

We believe in complete transparency. We can send you your x-rays by email at no extra cost.

Are x-rays included in the initial consultation fee?

No this is an extra service as not only do we take the x-rays we also create written reports for each x-ray. The fee would be discussed with you prior to taking x-rays.

I had recent x-rays taken by my dentist, can I use these for my consultation?

This is best practice as this eliminates any unnecessary x-rays as well as reduces any additional x-rays.

What if I don't want x-rays because of radiation?

We use phosphor plate x-ray technology. One digital x-ray generates radiation equivalent to eating two bananas. Very safe!

plus sign open for more
Do I have to come every 6 months for a dental health check?

Your examination interval is based on your risk profile. If you find that after a few years that you are managing well and receive low scores from the hygienist then this is an option open to you.

plus sign open for more
What’s the difference between the comprehensive dental health check and a regular health check?

The comprehensive health check is usually for the first meeting or for people we may not have seen for some time. Regular health checks are used to build a “picture” of your dental health over a few years.

How will I benefit from having a dental health check at Integrated Dentalcare?

Our experience in diagnosis, using high magnification to see minute detail together with the latest technology to show you what we see, will help you make better decisions about your dental care.
