"Removal of tooth"

About: Guy's Hospital / Dental medicine specialities

(as the patient),

Went to the hospital recently because I had a broken tooth. The work was done by students who didn't even appear to know how to put the cotton roll properly in place. There was no supervisor, it took them two hours to take out tooth. Now that they have taken it out the two teeth on each side of that tooth are moving and painful, I hope they haven't damaged them. I will wait for a few more days, if they are still moving, I will make a formal complaint.

Any one reading this and have an appointment at guys hospital please avoid it and get the treatment through a specialist. the treatment these students are providing is the equivalent you treat yourself.
