Massive skill points to Church Lane Dentists.

My dentists (Hillcrest) have struck me off their patient list after they cancelled my last appointment as they were closed due to covid.

I had a filling fall out during covid, but no pain which was good cos you couldn't see a dentist.

Roll on nearly 2 years & it starts to hurt. Really hurt. So bad on Friday that I couldn't even move to take my shoes off after work.

Visit to church lane dentist at 1pm Friday, booked in as an emergency private patient at 4pm, check up, xrays & extraction done by 4.20pm.

Yes, it cost £140.00, which is quite a bit to me at the moment, but it was worth every penny, but I'm painless still 4 days on. Absolutely brilliant dentist, kind, friendly & excellent at his job...

I think if more people knew how inexpensive private dentist treatment is, they would look for it more.
Twenty years ago, I needed dental work which according to Mrs Suleman of that particular dentist would cost £1,320.

I declined.

I also found an NHS dentist (very rare at the time) who did the same work for a total of £380.

Private dentistry is NOT cheap.

As I said, £140.00 is a lot to me at the moment, but for the excellent service I recieved after finding it impossible to find an NHS dentist & even being told by the emergency dental clinic that I would have to wait a week for just an appointment ateither of their emergency clinics in either Cannock or Lichfield when I was in extreme pain, it was worth every penny.

I did t say it was cheap, I said it was inexpensive - I was expecting the quote/bill to be nearer £500 for any treatment.

Yep, you did what was right for you.

I found Mrs Suleman to be focused on money. My niece worked there for a while and she said the same to me. Mrs Suleman couldn’t understand why I didn’t go ahead with the treatment at the time. It was more than my entire monthly wage - that’s why!

I remember reading an article, in the 90s, about a substance that could replace sugar, giving all its taste and structure properties, but without being metabolised in the same manner - like being sugar when it was eaten, but not being sugar during digestion, in effect.

This, of course would have great potential benefits.

They did list a few negative aspects, cost, the risk of inadvertent interchangeability, etc.

One of the side effects was delicately termed "faecal urgency".

A few years ago, one of the girls I worked with used to go to Weight Watchers, or Fat Club as it was more popularly known. One evening, they had an offer on the sugar free sweets. She bought 20 packets. Thought she could scoff as many as she wanted, because they were sugar free.
She was on the toilet more than she was off!! Didn't lose an ounce of weight. And wasn't aware of the effect till she came to work and was told of it.

I can vouch that diabetic medication can also have the same 'desperate for a shit' tendencies...

Yes, I found Ms Suleman to be a great dentist, until she went private, & I had to switch to a new NHS dentist.

My very first job was as a dental nurse, the dentist I worked for did both NHS & private.....he made up his charges for private dentistry according to the maximum he thought they could pay. He also offered hypnosis instead of drugs as a anaesthetic.

A good 10 years after I left I was contacted by the police as he had been charged with 'intefering' with patients while they were hypnotised.
