"I loved the fact that everyone ..."

About: Leeds Dental Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

I loved the fact that everyone treated you with respect, and also were very helpful, both with informing you of what treatment they were going to do, and, more importantly, regarding pain.

I had 2 teeth reomved on my visit, and had an abcess under one of them. This was incredibly painful, but they made sure that I felt no pain, just a slight discomfort.

Now, for those of you who have had abcess's before, you will know how painful they are, and the relief afterwords was beyond words.

What could be improved

Parking is the main thing to improve, if it is possible.

The reception was a lengthy wait, but then again, they did make it clear it was a turn up and wait appointment, so I cannot argue with that. The receptionist was a friendly gent too, which makes the world of difference.

Anything else?

I would highly recommend visiting the Dental Hospital, especially, if like me, you have no dentist.

Yes, you are there for a while, but the treatment you get is second to none, and I have nothing but praise for the students and their tutors who assisted me on my visit.
