"Some People Enjoy Pomposity"
About: Newcastle Dental Hospital Newcastle Dental Hospital Newcastle Upon Tyne NE2 4AZ
I attended the Emergency facility having been in excruciating, blinding pain, for a few days. My dentist gave me a letter of introduction. I arrived there just before 9am - despite my best efforts to arrive at 0830am, I live 25 miles away and needed to marshall three children into the vehicle as well. Everyone at the Dental Hospital was the consummate professional I'd expect: Except one "clinician" who seemed to feel that they were channelling the role of James Robertson Justice in the "Doctor" films. Everybody had to refer to them for their opinion and approval, which, they were only too aware of. That would've been fine but, they felt the need to approach me to chew me out about attending the Emergency Dental Pain Clinic whilst I was in acute Emergency Dental Pain, with a letter from my dentist. Confused? So was I. Yet, some people take advantage of others while they're laid low with illness and I believe this to be the case. Otherwise, to reiterate; everyone else was brilliant. Low waiting times. Thorough, if primitive, diagnostics. Sympathetic staff. Certainly, if you're in a lot of pain, go there.
