Liked: The only thing i have been impressed with is that i have been given emergency appointments the same day
Improved: Whenever i have been in the past it has been a different dentist each time, none of them speak very good and clear english, nothing has been explained to me clearly enough for me to understand, the dentists have made me feel stupid for going like i'm wasting their time when in fact i'm paying for my appointment i should be treated with respect
AnythingElse: In the past i have complained of toothache in a particular tooth, and told there was absolutely nothing wrong with it, and given antibiotics, nothing improved and i moved away from Melton and saw a different Nhs dentist who told me that the tooth had started to rot and needed the rotting bit taken away and filled in asap, i have since moved back to Melton and seen another dentist back at Adp, complaining of ache in the whole area which the same tooth is in, this dentist refused to look at any other part of my mouth other than the one tooth, but told me in the x-ray they could see a lesion in another tooth next to it which they then said they would not look at any further because that was not where i told them the sensitivity was and told me the sensitive tooth looked fine. i also asked if this dentist would remove some glue that was on the back of my top teeth that was hanging on by my denture and needed filing away, they wouldn't look at it and told me its an orthodontist job when all that needed doing was the glue filing off. there was also another time a couple of years ago i had a bridge put in which fell out every time around a week later when it was put in, this went on for about a month and a half while they tried different glues, none of these worked and i had a denture made, my denture fell out and it broke a while after, (the fact the denture fell out was my fault but i should have been given efficient treatment to have it replaced) i had to have a mould taken for a new one to be made, which took them 3 attempts to get right in which time i had to go 4 weeks with a missing front tooth, i wanted to make a written complaint about this and the staff there would not let me or give me any information as to who i could contact. i have not had any good experiences with this dentist but i am forced to go as it is the only Nhs dental surgery in Melton Mowbray.
