  • NHS Choices 4 out of 5

    "I've had lots of issues with this dentist, from the beginning. I always wanted to see the same dentist and so many staff changes and the failure of reception staff to try to ensure the continuity meant this was difficult. Then had a dentist there tell me I needed some work done, which I really didn't believe and a second opinion confirmed I was right...no need for dental work! I have finally got a dentist there who I am happy with, they are supportive, make you feel confident and has worked out the issue, but having been in again, I got faced by rude reception staff and who could not even smile and obviously resent me wanting to see the dentist again. Whilst there, somebody put the phone down on her (obviously thinking the same), and the comment of, its another monday, was made. Really, if they can't work out that people will be rude to them, if they pull a face at you..."
