"Tooth extraction"

About: Royal Preston Hospital

Anything else?

I was so pleased today at the ease of extracting a troublesome tooth today. My dentist had struggled to remove it and it had snapped at the gumline. I'm not a nervous patient, but that experience made me rather anxious The team at Oral Surgery could not have been nicer and put me at ease throughout. The tooth only took a few minutes to extract and the aftercare was brilliant. I even went in earlier than my appointment time! Just one small suggestion however...Could they have music in the rooms they use as it would make nervous patients a lot more at ease I am sure! Many thanks to all concerned!
