sounds about right
my mum went to the dentist for ulcers, they did X-ray's and said you need teeth removing, she said I've never had any problems and said no thanks
I did however take her to another clinic, they did the checks and nothing was wrong with her teeth oO

I've had similar issues .
OK i've got more fillings than Mr Kiplings but i didn't expect to get charged for a new tarmac driveway and roof repairs that i never asked for.

Ah yes.......that explains it. And a UKIP-voting Brexit supporter. Sad, isn't it that there isn't some kind of intelligence test to be passed before people are given the vote?
I had a tailor-made Mouth-Guard made for my teeth last week, they make a mould from your mouth then a week later they give you the mouth-guard; i was told by the Receptionist its absolutely free for everyone regardless of anything, as are loads of other dentist services.



Still cheap compared to private Dentistry, My dentist went Private a few years ago and gave the patients an ultimatum, pay privately or find another dentist. Built their practice up using the NHS and then turned their backs on it . Virtually impossible to find an NHS dentist in my area that will take new patients thou, so forced to pay privately at the moment. Treatment and service no better than the NHS thou,

This is what's worrying me that I'm being told I need more work done than needed so they can make easy money.

And yet the dentist I go to is full to the brim with folk who cannot speak a word of English and do not have to pay for their treatment.
No doubt folk like you whine about not enough funding for the NHS.

£50 for that service, NHS registered. Advice is the only thing they give out free, after you have made an appointment, registered and paid up of course.

Uncanny resemblance.
Same with my dentist, keeps pointing out stuff that might need doing, in the hope I might say yes and pay more than necessary. Any dentists on this forum care to comment?

How did you manage to get a mouth guard for free?
yeah i want to know how you managed that (without signing the form saying your not working, and claiming certain benefits). My son paid £50 for a mouth guard last week (for boxing)!
I thought mouth guards for boxing were bought from sports direct.

I personally think it sad that someone thinks a political preference is down to intelligence, for some Brexit would be better, likewise voting for UKIP, there will be winners and losers regardless of what happens I very much doubt there's many altruistic voters left in the country.
Some dentists push for an unnecessary crown so they can make loads of money. I had this experience, he wanted the money for the crown upfront when I needed root canal first and stick the crown straight on. I went to another dentist, had root canal waited to see if it was sucessful before considering a crown. She did it three times but explained it was bad so might not be sucessful and if it didn't work I'd need it removed and if it did a rubber dam inserted and a filling was all that would be needed. Either way it would only cost £51.30 as it is the same course of treatment and in the same band

If you're Chinese?
yeah you can get the mouth guards from sports direct- ones that you soak in hot water that are suppose to mould to you teeth/gums they are absolute rubbish for a tenner. So son went to dentist got it professionally moulded, and its brilliant- but cost £50, so very interested to know how op got for free!

​well if you go for a treatment/checkup, everything work done in the same band is included in one payment for 2 months, and the are obliged to do all the necessary treatment in one course (payment),
