"Quick and efficient dental service"

About: Blackpool PCT / Emergency dental service

(as the patient),

I am new to this area and have not as yet registered with a GP or a dentist. I unfortunately recently found myself in acute pain with toothache and was unsure who to contact. I found a number for the local Medical Centre (Whitegate Drive Medical Centre Blackpool_ and called.

My call was answered quickly and efficiently - and I was given an appointment within two hrs! On arrival, the dentists' assistant could not have been more helpful, polite or reassuring. I was quickly and almost painlessly treated by the dentist (which considering it entailed an extraction) is remarkable.

Both he and his assistant were very kind and attentive throughout. The next day I had further pain problems and had to return to the centre, I was treated by the same team who seemed (and thats all that matters! ) to remember my name. Again I was very quickly treated and am delighted to say I am almost pain free now.

I cannot praise the dentistry dept enough, I have a real phobia of dentists and the Team at Whitegate drive have renewed my confidence in attending a dentist. Thank you so much!
