After 6 weeks worrying, too frightened to even go for a check up I went to the dentist today. I made a complete fool of myself, crying my eyes out in the chair, thats how frightened I am, but this lovely man not only inspected the tooth I wanted looking at, he gave the rest a quick check and gave me a painless injection and treated the tooth I wanted filling. When he'd done that and gained my confidence, he gave me a full check helped by his lovely assistant, explained what else he could do to help a 73 year old lady and I happilly made a further appointment. He comes with my full reccomendation and I doubt anyone could be as scared as I am. Give him a try
I hope he gave you a painless injection when you got the bill !!
He charged me 50 euros to re-fix a crown, took him all of 5 minutes !
I have now got false teeth as I was so frighten of the dentist, I had them taken out at Torrevieja Hospital
if that's what it costs that's what it costs. You're paying for the expertise that these people have studied for for years You could have rung round for a quote. I'm just saying as a terrified coward he did the job and I'm not too frightened to go back.
I am afraid Paul has out priced himself, there is now a brand new dentist in the village with up to date modern equipment who is as good if not better than Paul and at a much better price.
Dave, I know I keep going on about Stockport, but how much would it cost to get your crown re-stuck there? Me thinks a tad more than €50, think yourself lucky
my partner paid 200 euros for 2 fillings last week,very expensive,will try the spanish dentist the next time.
think myself lucky ? What I don't get about dentist's is, if they did the job right in the first place, I wouldn't have to keep paying to have the job put right ! I was a joiner, and if I say, hung a door for you and sometime later the door was sticking (doors do swell and contract with heat and cold) I would come back and fix it for you FREE, not these jokers, ....no wonder they wear a mask !!
Dave, never argue with a dentist, especially when he's got pliers in your mouth. My UK NHS Dentist decided to go private and wanted £10 per month, just to be on his books.
I bet that left you feeling down in the mouth..............see what I did there ?............i'm here all week....arf arf.
I once restuck a crown in myself with superglue..... trust me, its better to get a professional to do it... Having said that, I think there is more skill in hanging a door, than drilling a hole in something and applying filler.
Correct marko, hanging a door is quite a skilled job. I wish all those years ago, I could have charged 10 Euros a minute, like dentists do.
Assuming we all have a dentist that we trust how about a simple rating test....?
