"tooth removal"

About: Leicester Royal Infirmary

I atttended the maxillary facial theatre for the removal of an unerupted canine tooth. The theatre arrivals team were fantastic and even sat talking to me as i was the last patient to go to theatre. Upon arrival on the day ward after, i was sent home without written instruction for medication or aftercare. i was advised that i would receive a phone call to enquire how i was but this did not happen. Four months later my dentist has still not received any correspondence to indicate what they did even though he has requested this.
