I think i might now go private - what are your views?

I went to the friggin dentist yesterday for my 6 mth check-up and ended up paying 42.40 :eek: Could'nt believe wat I was hearing.

Apart from literally a 30 second check round my mouth and the quickest scale and polish ever, he had to rebuild a small part on the side of a back tooth which had broken off (whilst eating a crunch-corner yoghurt would you believe :haha: )
I was only in the chair bl**dy 5 minutes. It was a late afternoon appointment, he just wanted me in and out as quick as poss.

Aparrantly there is now a new pricing system for NHS dentistry
15.50 for a check-up - that's bad enough, then it jumps to
42.40 for general work such as fillings etc
God knows wat you'd pay for major work - its frightening

At those prices I can't see it being much cheaper than going private and im sure you'd receive better service

What dya think?? Who goes private?

I go private but only because I couldn't get in on the National Health Service, but the waiting room is very plush (should think so the money they're charging) :angel:
