What I liked
Nothing apart from helpfull reception staff.
What could be improved
To do what dentist should do (if they do so-I can't comment on that as never received any treatment). Few months ago I attended private dental surgery, but because I have liver dissese, I've been referred to dental hospital. I've been waiting over two months, then received a letter stating I have appointment with one of the consultants.
I attended hospital consultant looked at the state of my teeth and said there is lots of work to be done and not many clinics would deal with this.
1st of all I attended private clinic and been referred to dental hospital where I believe you should treat any patient whatever state his teeth are.
In case I attend another doctor in hospital and I am very ill- will doctor tell me- Sorry you are too ill can't do anything?!
2nd consultant told me that she/he will speak to one of his/her colleagues (I believe dentist as well), and only thing I can do I will be notified by post within possibly another two months maybe later,etc (depending how busy he will be), that he/she will see me and on top of that said- (Maybe he/she will be able to do something, when i asked what if not? consultant replied- then will think something else).
So that means if I have my teeth at bad stage only I can do is buy a drill and start drilling them myself or start pulling them out?
I am completely unsatisfied and dissapointed and would like to hear some reply or some explanation regarding this case.
And who I should contact regarding that case?
