"First Class Emergency Dental Care"

I was staying in Camelford for Christmas and was dismayed when a large part of a molar broke off during breakfast muesli! I imagined the horrors of not being able to fully indulge in the Christmas excesses of food! I rang a random dentist in Bodmin who gave me an emergency number which I duly rang. I was impressed by the efficiency of being provided an appointment at 10:45 on same day at the dental clinic in Launceston hospital. I was advised to attend 10 minutes early to attend to oater work and was promptly seen by the dental nurse who provided paperwork and quickly showed me thought to a meticulously clean and modern clinic. The dentist looked at all my teeth and although I had had a recent check up with my own dentist recently was able to provide some advise that I shall act upon. He also talked me through some options for me regarding treatment for my tooth. They then attended expertly to my malfunctioning molar and were able not only to save the offending tooth but save the day and the holiday now no turkey shall escape the grind of my new reinforced turkey trasher! I was very impressed with the efficiency and professionalism of all aspects of the service. I cannot recommend these professionals highly enough and wish that this service could be replicated through out the country.
