"Excellent care received"

About: Leeds Dental Hospital

I attended via A&E with a dental abscess that was rapidly spreading, I have a phobia of dentists and was extremely fearful when told I could not be put to sleep. The dentist I saw was fantastic, put me at ease, kept talking me through what they were doing. I had to have an extraction, it was done in 2-3 minutes and I left wondering why I was so afraid. Fantastic staff and bedside manner. If only this dentist worked from a practice.

Response from Leeds Teaching Hospitals

Dear Anonymous,

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 hope that this has now helped in some way to reduce your fear of dentists.

I have passed your post onto the business manager so that he can pass your kind words onto his staff so that they too can know of the great work that they are doing.

With kind regards


Senior Nurse
