    Default Free Dental Treatment

    Hi

    I recently found out that I can get free dental treatment although I work full time!

    Its at a univerity practice and its 4th year students performing the procedures under supervision of a qualified dentist.

    I have an appointment booked and have been assured that there will be no fee for anywork carried out.

    I hope that it doesnt hurt too much though!

    Still beats going on a waiting list for months on end and paying ridiculously high bills!

    Anybody else tried this?

    Nat

    I will let you know how it goes, I know the university has an excellent reputation for dentistry and i'm sure they use all of the latest technology.

    My old dentist was very old fashioned like something form the 1950's, so I'm sure this will be a much better ( and less painfull) experience!

    You will get excellent treatment with modern equipment; the only drawback is the time for each clinical procedure as it must be examined and cleared at each stage by the supervising qualified clinician.

    Free dental check up is a nice way to make people aware about the importance of dental health and oral care.

    The quality of the treatment is dependant on the hands that hold them and not the equipment itself.

    If they did not tell you, you should have just paid the NHS charge and complained.

    Word of warning, I went to Leeds Stduent dental Practice and whilst I can't fault the treatment I was given (just a check up, I didn't need any work), the place itself was horrible. An open plan dentists practice with open plan office style dividers in between the chairs, and lots of student smilling around waiting for someone who needs treatment!

    And after seeing the amount that dentistry students drink on a night out I wouldn't want any of them anywhere near me with a drill!!!

    I too had alot of work that needed doing after been involved in a car accident, from extractions to a small plate been fitted, aswell as other work, ie root canels and 4 gold teeth. i looked at all methods in relation to this and the costs involved, i went to my local dentist hospital and although there accessed my needs, there would only do work that there deemed that was required, like one of the posts reads, there wasn't any private rooms, so any1 walking past could see any work been carried out, the place was horrid, and after spending nearly 6 hrs going from one little hole to another, for x rays etc. I thankfully opted not to have any treatment at the hospital.
    I contacted my dentist, and although i have paid him near to 4,000 thousand pounds, in the past 2 years, myself would say the price paid WAS worth every penny. Its just a shame that the work doesnt come under a long warranty, as i had to have alittle work re-done which cost me twice. With all the work complete now, and i'm able to eat to better degree, money well spent. ( alot of the work had to be done private, with some under the nhs chargement ) as some didnt come under the nhs.
    If you are getting any work done, always get a plan drawn up with the dentist and know the price from the start b4 any work is carried out, all work will be under the same price band, which come in 3 bands. top band been 298 which includes filling root canels etc etc

    Jokerdiso, just gone through paper work ,the price of fillings depend on which filling you have,
    Amalgam filling starts at 16.00
    Composite filling starts at 11,72
    Glass Ionomer filling starts at 10.55

    The price will depend on which Molar it is, for size etc and which tyoe of filling used.

    you never said if you had root canel fillings or normal, so the price is variable. But i would ask your dentist as to how there priced the work carried out. Ask for a breakdown of charges. before deciding any action if any.
