    They need to change their website then.

    There does seem to be have been blatant profiteering going on in dentistry for a long time.

    Have you tried the one on Friars Road, can't remember what they're called though.

    It's the one I linked to which doesn't do NHS anymore apparently.

    It does do NHS but they're not taking new NHS at the moment. I'll call them again today and ask them about their webpage and report back.

    I've finally managed to get treated by an NHS dentist but because it's been so long I had to have 4 extractions and more to come and I now need dentures.

    I registered with the Dental Surgery on Friar's Terrace and they were really good particularly with me having a morbid fear of dentists.

    They're still taking new NHS patients if anyone needs to register.

    My Dad had to find a new dentist as he'd been struck off the list and they were the only ones who'd take him.

    That's good to know, (the dentist, not extractions) I had a humongous filling fall out last April, its not causing any pain but I think I may be on borrowed time & my usual dentist (Hillcrest) seems to have changed hands.

    If you're registered with one dentist, and haven't been for a while, can you change to another?

    I think to you can as the choice of dentist is yours.

    Also they're quick enough to drop NHS patients if you don't go for a while (without even telling me in my case) so it should be reciprocal.

    So far two friends have asked if the dentist could do implants instead of dentures but I said I didn't think they'd do it on the NHS and in any case I'd look a bit silly with a pair of boobs hanging out of my mouth :)
