"Told what was good and what was bad after a good check up"
4.5 50Reviewed 30 Jul 2015 Verified user. Review confirmed by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Root Canals,Fillings
My wife failed to get treatment from NHS dentist when needed to refill temporary root canal filling which fell out.
Decided to go private to get the required treatment, as told by NHS dentist's receptionist to purchase a temporary filing kit and do it herself.

Was given a good checkup and told what was good and what was not about her teeth. The root canal tooth was refilled, but, was told that the tooth was cracked, and would not be able to be saved.

Job Title:

Dental Surgeon. BDS. GDC registration number: 58992.
