"Excellent dental treatment"

About: NHS Lothian

(as the patient),

I was recently treated for a dental abscess which was very painful. I received an immediate appointment and 2 subsequent appointments as a follow up, to drain the infection and for root canal treatment.

The whole process for treatment was well explained and I was given information regarding possible complications and the course of action to be followed should this occur.

The consultations were all very patient centred and the cost considering this took 3 visits was very reasonable at around £35.

The pain disappeared shortly after my first visit and I have had no complications.
