After years of traveling about the country with work and not being able to make and keep appointments easily I got dumped from my dentists list about 5 years ago.
I got back on with the new changes last year, but find my dentists attitude and care has changed radically. He used to seem um-hurried and had time to talk procedures through, now he just wants to get me in and out asap.
When I've asked about the more expensive treatments, he says there isn't anything in this years budget to do it, but can do it privately.
I've had a couple of crowns done last year, but at my accountants dentist in Poland, at a fraction of the UK price.
So no, it's not improving at all. Roll on the Hungarian 'Tinker Dentists' that are coming over... two fillings and mend the pots with the left over amalgam!
