"Wisdom tooth extraction with IV sedation"

About: Salisbury District Hospital

Anything else?

Gosh I was worried about this and cried twice before I had even seen the oral surgeon! For anyone reading this prior to having it done do not worry. I don't remember a thing about the extraction and everyone was so kind and reassuring.

Response from Salisbury District Hospital

Thank you for giving us this feedback. No-one likes the thought of having teeth removed, and this is one of the reasons that we established a service where we do this using sedation. Your comments have been shared with the staff who cared for you so that they know how much their kindness and reassurance is appreciated. We are really pleased that someone who was so anxious feels able to advise other people not to worry - this males your recommendation very valuable. We hope that all is well following your procedure, and thank you once again for your kind words.
