What I liked
Been there before and had good service..
What could be improved
Can't we go to the hospital without being referred?
I have a problem with my wisdom tooth, and unfortunately cannot get an appointment until 8th July with my own dentist. I have been to Birmingham Dental Hospital 3 years ago to have my other wisdom tooth extracted, so I decided to contact Birmingham Dental Hospital and ask if I could come in this Friday to be examined and hopefully have my wisdom tooth extracted.
The telephone receptionist said there is a waiting list for tooth extractions, and that I had to be referred by my own dentist. So now I am left with a bothersome wisdom tooth, and have to wait until 8th July so that my dentist can then refer me to Birmingham Dental Hospital ....
