"Front tooth replacement - Restorative dept"

About: Leeds Dental Hospital

I had an abscess behind one of my front teeth (previous crown) and therefore needed this eradicating and crown replacing. I was originally told that I may loose my front tooth to a denture (temporary or permanent), which was not what I wanted, and really worried me! The dentist I was assigned to was truly fantastic - from week one, to my very final (I hope!) appointment last week. Whilst I have had to go back and forth to Leeds for a number of months now to solve the problem the service remained superb. It was not only clean, friendly and efficient: but my dentist in the restorative department was wonderful. Highly skilled, caring, thoughtful, dedicated and professional. The dentist deserves individual praise. There are many 'student' doctors and nurses, all supported and directed by great consultants and technicians - all who did a fantastic job, and whilst many are learning "on the job" all were dedicated to supporting their patients and listening to their needs. A huge thank you! I would recommend the Leeds Dental Hospital without hesitation.

Response from Leeds Teaching Hospitals

Dear Rebecca H,

Thank you for taking the time to write to us, it is wonderful to read that you had such a positive experience whilst in our care.

I have passed your comments onto the Leeds Dental Hospital and have asked that they share them with all of their staff members so that they can too be aware of the wonderful work that they are doing.

With kind regards

Rosie Horsman
