AnythingElse: Having had an abscess and having received a course of antibiotics when the infection flared up again I was able to get an emergency appointment the same day and receive treatment to take away the immediate pain. Today I have had my root canal treatment completed and as a patient who gets really stressed about dental treatment was absolutely delighted with the treatment and care I received from the dentist and their staff. All my questions were answered clearly before we started which gave me great reassurance.As the treatment (11/4 hrs ) progressed the dentist in a very calm, simple and clear way explained what they were doing and what I might feel at each stage of the root canal work and that i might feel some mild discomfort for up to a couple of days later. Seven hours later the anaesthetic has worn off and there is no discomfort at all. We joined this practice after being with our last dentist for over twenty years and I cannot commend highly enough the professionalism of all the staff from the receptionists, to the dental hygienists and nurses to the dentist, and would not hesitate to recommend this practice, particularly if like me you have a rather embarrassing fear of the prospect of visiting a dentist as you approach your mid fifties!!
