"treatment at Maxillofacial clinic"

About: Leicester Royal Infirmary

Anything else?

Had an original consultation on 2 July 2013. Appointment half hour later but had been advised that there had been a medical emergency and that there would be a delay. Offered an appointment for extraction for two days later, but, due to a family commitment had to turn down. Finally went 4 September for a tooth extraction. Only had to wait ten minutes. The room was unlike a dentist surgery. No sign of instruments etc., they were all 'hidden' away under a covering behind the examination chair.The dentist was extremely informative, and allayed my fears (does anyone like going to the dentists!). Throughout the proceedure both the dentist and the nurse re-assured me, and asked me if I was alright. After the extraction, I sat for a few minutes to 'recover' and was given all the instructions for post care. I can only thank the dentist and the nurse for their kindness and consideration. I hope this comment can be passed on.
