  1. I just want to know why we have to pay so much for a routine check up.Last month my dentist charged me £30 to be seen and the he opened my mouth and i told him that i was having a little pain he checked and said to me i would have to have two fillings which would be about £450 but could be more.Anyway on that day he didn’t even give me a polish,i wasn’t even in the seat for no longer than ten seconds and i was charged £30 for that.I want to know why we pay national insurence and then can’t get the treatment and we still have to pay for poor service its really bad.I can’t afford to pay for a £500 filling its ridiculouse.Why is it that the alternative is to go to the hospital dentist emergency where they are students and waiting to be seen up and till four ,five hours but the problem with that is u have to back and forth for assesments,especialy when appointments are maybe two a week at certain time and to top it all off this mercury is no good?All im saying is every month i pay national insurence and i think that should be apart of my dentist check and costs because i really upset out here,why is our country worst for dentist.
