NHS DENTIST

I went with tooth ache the said there was nothing wrong was found with my teeth. Then they said big holes had been found and need a extraction. In their wisdom they put a temp filling in which went rotten and infected. The way they extracted the tooth caused more pain than the actual extraction ie trapping my lips with the tools. sticking the needle into my wisdom teeth not to mention slipping with the drill and hitting my other teeth with it. Oh and she slipped with scrapper and cut my lip and above. I am suffering with burning mouth syndrome cause of the work done and I will not go back there. I am also looking to take legal action against the dental practice. I wouldn't even rate them as 1

    Thanks for Putting Me Out of My Misery

       

    Today, I needed an emergency appointment after a weekend of raging toothache and no sleep. My usual dentist wasn't working today but Hana very kindly fitted me in instead, checked me over, did an x-ray, discovered an abscess and explained future treatment possibilities while treating the very painful condition with antibiotics. I could not fault the practice for their kind, helpful approach in what, to me, was a dental emergency...........thanks so much! I can function again!!

    Praise Where It Is Due

       

    I was surprised to read the poor reviews of April Lodge but everyone has different experiences of services, Recently, I shattered a crown which had been in place for over 30 years, situated at the front of my mouth, so a pretty unsightly problem.

    I popped in, was given an emergency appointment within 15 minutes, and my crown was prepped the same day. The temporary crown was a great fit and didn't look too bad (I've had some grim ones in the past) and yesterday, the real thing was fitted and looks/feels great.

    I have always found the surgery to be friendly and welcoming and the treatment to be good, so personally, I would recommend them. It is hard finding NHS dentists so it is good to have a dental practice handily based in Stratton which is still taking on NHS patients. On the basis of my recent experience, I'm very happy with April Lodge's Maria who did an excellent job on my tooth. As the crown cost me £204, I was encouraged to pay in two instalments, which made a lot of sense. Had I gone private, the cost for a porcelain crown bonded to precious metal would have varied between £278 and £378, plus any extras for x-rays, emergency appointments (around £21), etc. I also receive text reminders of appointments, which is really useful.

    Good

       

    I couldn't dis-agree more! I ring up for an emergency appointment and get one same day and they got me out of pain for me to come back for further treatment! The nurses are very helpful and polite to me and always has been, that goes for most of the staff actually.

    Steamhammer, its the same wherever you go with the NHS, dentists, doctors, there is always a certain amount of time to wait.

    Better of going to the vets

       

    Extremely poor treatment and even worse attitude, hard to believe the dentists are actually qualified.

    Terrible

       

    Feel the same as the above. Can never get through on the phone for an appointment, on the phone all morning then the message changes to closed for today and it's only lunchtime.
    The reception staff are rude and unhelpful, I'm made to feel like I'm in the way not a customer!
    Had heard a practice in Holsworthy is taking on new NHS patients.

    very poor treatment

       

    couldnt agree more steamhammer.
    you phone up for an emergency appointment and they will see you the same day BUT all they do is look at it and get you to make another appointment in a few weeks time. not much good if you are in agony.
    only problem is we are probably stuck with them as no other dentists anywhere near us are taking on nhs patients.
