"Maxillofacial care"

About: Royal Albert Edward Infirmary

I suffered from a 'hot tooth' that wouldn't go numb under my dentist for to the infection and was referred to the maxillofacial unit so I could be sedated. The pain I was going through was unbearable and was so grateful for this dept when I received my treatment. The staff was very professional and reassuring as I was very nervous before my treatment. A special thanks to three members of staff and the team. Thanks for everything you all did xx Mrs V Shuttleworth X
