    "I broke the filling in one of my teeth a week ago. I rang at 8am and as I was in pain I was seen that day. A temporary filing was put in the tooth. Sadly, the pain got worse after a few days, so I was able to be seen again and given antibiotics Again, these didn't help, and the pain was so intense i rang again at 8am. I got another appointment for that same day where I was seen and was given a root canal procedure. I just want to thank the Receptionists for listening to my problem, and for fitting me in especially this last time as I was in so much pain. In my experience if you have an emergency and ring at 8am you can get an appointment the same day. Thank you I am now pain free"
