    I find myself in need of a NHS Dentist, I am registered with Hillcrest, but have never been overly happy with the service I've received.....does anyone know if ...

    1) There are any other NHS Dentists in/around Stafford

    2) Any that are taking on new NHS patients, that have to pay for their treatment. (Some only take on people who are in receipt if benefits - not me :( )

    Thank you.....

    I have used the dentist on Eastgate Street for a few years now and have found them to be very good.

    As for Suleman at Church Lane. She once recommended that I needed work doing which would cost £1500. I got a second opinion and ended up needing less work done which cost less than a third she had quoted.

    Only been with them for a year or so but would agree with the above.

    I've ended up making an appointment at the. Stafford Dental Centre on Eastgate Street (thanks @bigbluewolf @Withnail & @Wormella for the recommendation), they were a lot more helpful, friendly & didn't mind me asking tons of questions - where as The Goodwin & Simpson place seemed quite put out that I had things to ask before making an appointment.

    My appointment is for next week, hope the dentist is as nice as the reception staff!

    Oasis on Wolverhampton Road take NHS patients and they've generally been okay.

    Unbelievable - Stafford Dental Centre today (the day before my much needed appointment) sent me a text saying they are cancelling my appointment, phoned them up to see what's going on & its because they're too busy after Easter!

    DISGUSTING!

    Dentist decided to extend his holiday I expect. This has happened before here which is why I took my teeth elsewhere.
