and explain how exactly i can get cheap and/or free treatment.
because, i am severely confused.
i have a job though anyway!
I'm sure if you've lived here long enough you're entitled to use the NHS.
i'm just trying to figure out how to not pay a massive dental bill. and whether i can get it on the NHS...
and you're registered then I think you should have got help.
However I have this worrying feeling that dentistry isn't covered in the same way as other NHS services, maybe because a lot of the required work can be easily avoided for any person with a reasonable income.
but, the required treatment will cost me half a months wage...
which is why i'm like, can't i get some kind of help somehow?
animals altogether. NHS dentists are nearly always booked up until the year 3789
I think you're going to have to pay.
they are both teaching hospitals. your consultations will be efficient and your treatment better because you get the triplr safety net of student dentist, supervisors and field specialists all under one session. Mayor treatment is free but you still pay £22 for an examination each time but is the best way to go.
However, your existing dentist may not refer you as they want to line their own pockets.
As of recently I have become an expert on all things dental.
just register with your local GP.
shut up you. :)
Good luck finding an NHS dentist- they've cut subsidies to them, so there are hardly any around.
I got an appointment within 10 minutes of Googling, and treatment 24 hours later.
there are 3 different levels of charge depending on the treatment. But yeah, if it's not, well, yer a bit fucked. Soz.
although I think you can get it cheaper on the NHS.
should cost 189 quid max. If this is half a month's wage, where do you work?
I would question the motives of the dentist. Is he trying to con you out of stuff?
assuming dentists are men. TUH
dental treatment = FREE
is that how you do it?
