    "I have been a patient for many many years at this practice. I attended for my 6 monthly check up to be told by the receptionist you have to pay for your treatment before you go in to see the dentist now!! I was flabbergasted! Is this normal dentistry practice nowadays? Or just My Dentist's practice? I have worked in the NHS for almost 30 years and fear for what the future holds. Very disillusioned and disappointed patient. I did not book my next follow up as would previously have done."
