"Wisdom Teeth Extraction for my Autistic Daughter"

About: Milton Keynes Hospital

Anything else?

My Daughter came in the MK Treatment Centre as a Day Patient to have two large Wisdom Teeth removed. She is Autistic and when nervous refuses to do anything at all...She wont even leave the house unless I her carer am with her. I have to say that from the moment we got there the staff were very accomodating on the matter of me being with her, as at this stage with her nerves Mel even refused to talk.. All Staff from reception, DSU ward, doctor, aneathestist and theatre guys were all so accomodating and understanding of her needs (I must mention a theatre guy called who held her hand and chatted about animals - this won her over immediately) The whole staff were caring, attentive and so kind and made an "alien experience" so manageable for myself and my daughter...Big Thanks. Keep doing what your doing
