Well it might not be for the faint hearted but it will still get your gnashers sorted free and it will help train students for future folk who can afford to pay.
Other places than Newcastle provide this service so just try googling your area to see.

He's probably been put on one those compulsary back to work training schemes X)
trainee hairdresser is still OK. dentist?? don't think I dare even try!
One of my ex wives (?!?) used to work at the Newcastle Dental Hospital and she would always give glowing praise as to the level of expertise the trainees showed. Bear in mind, they aren't trying to fix your teeth in a five or ten or fifteen minute window before the next appointment, they are working as carefully as they can to fix your teeth in the best way possible - giving a level of attention that surpasses what they'll be able to give once they're fully trained and working in practice.

Nicely put. Its always good to hear a personal review to put potential patients at ease.
Ps I hope you have recovered from your financial extraction post seperation.

She ran off with one of the trainee dentists - but I'm not bitter - after all, she taught me the importance of regular brushing and flossing. As you can see from my avatar, I've got a fine set.

No, there are others. I think Liverpool University Dental Hospital and Barts and The London Academic Dental Clinic and Peninsula Dental School in Exeter and here medhealth.leeds.ac.uk/inf…ent . Different levels of treatment available at each location and the list is not complete I'm sure (if anyone knows of other locations/links please feel free to add to the list).
Glasgow has a dental hospital but I don't know if they do free treatment - I was referred there as a young 'un by the NHS to get braces fitted
None near me unfortunately.

OP, just so you know, "ECT" stands for Electroconvulsive Therapy. If you meant 'etc', remember it by saying ETCetera.
sometimes newly qualified doctors and dentists are the best because they are still motivated and enthusiastic.
I had some excellent dental work done by a newly qualified dentist from Leeds, to the point where when I moved away and had a new dentist, the new one commented on how good the work on my teeth had been.

Sometimes dental schools/universities are the only places to get treatment when i had a very nasty infection and suffered for weeks as no dentist could or would treat it i ended up going to the dental school in Whitechapel and they did a very good job sorting my mouth out. When i went you had to be up at the crack of a sparrows fart to be first in queue to get treatment as they'd only see a handful of walk-in's everyday
This is madness , a trainee dentist ! . Most people are scared of the experienced ones

I had to scare away 3 Eunuchs from harassing the dentist last time I had treatment, really leaves you calm.

No. This is a sensible option for someone who is at a loss or has no money. All work is caried out under strict supervision by proffessionals. Plus any volunteers are providing essential skills training to soon to be qualified dentists.
poor students, these will be the same one that will do their best to scrounge the system eventually. This profession should be controlled by the law, we are talking about health here and not a way to make easy money out of people pain and hardly earned money and if they do not like they can go to work like everyone else does.

I think you need to book yourself onto a beauticians course.....some of the stuff those girls do to each other is an eye opener.
I need a dentist and I do not need an eye opener but obviously I need to look at something pleasant while I am there and not at an old fat nurse sometime without teeth. You see, it is been happening very often recently
Does anyone know if something similar is available in Manchester/Salford?

This is the best I could find. It's not trainees by the looks of things but worth a call cmft.nhs.uk/den…nic
Newcastle Dental Hospital is great. was there a few months back when my tooth broke

Not sure about other places but with Newcastle they only have a set number of places each day so you have to get there before opening if you want to be seen.
BEWARE - they try to angle you towards "root canal treatment" - for the training of the dentists. They can save the tooth easier but don't. And the root canal treatment was every bit as bad as torture. 4 visits for between 1 and 2 hours a time and it didn't work. I had to get the tooth out anyways due to the incompetent doing the root canal. It happened to me. TWICE. (Second time I just told them to take the damn thing out) Just go to a decent dentist or tell them from the off you are NOT going to do "root canal" - AT ALL./ EVER

I didn't realise they still offered this service. When I was a child I remember people could just walk in off the street, sit in a queue and get an appointment.
There's a dental school associated with Portsmouth University.
Neighbour visited Liverpool dental school and had free titanium implants that would have cost a fortune had he visited a qualified dentist. The students are supervised and seem to do an excellent job.
The people saying that they had dental implants for free are lucky cos do some research and most will only do root canal, crowns and metal fillings. All which you can get for free
(if claiming benefits) at most local dentists.

With a trainee hairdresser,if it goes wong,you can always have a no.1 buzzcut.
But if a dentist pulls your teeth out,can they just stick it back on.:|

​exactly. I'm sure there is a certain degree of standard before they allow the trainee to treat a real patient. however, I'm just dreaded with the risk of getting the bad/wrong treatment. getting my tooth fixed is not something that I enjoy to repeat.
I really wouldn't use a student dentist. Most of them don't even want to do the job, get pushed into it by parents or schools they went to.

Kinda applies to full qualified ones, though hopefully the non-starters are sifted out by the time they qualify.

Totally agree. Trainees spend a lot of time and give a lot of attention to detail and they are heavily supervised. I have not yet tried dental trainees but always have hair and beauty treatments at a training college because I get a much better treatment/cut/service than in a salon.
