"I've been an orthognathic/orthodontic ..."

About: Chelsea & Westminster Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

I've been an orthognathic/orthodontic patient for years. The Orthodontist is amazing, professional and always makes my visit seem shorter (dentists!) Its clean, calm, and the orthodontist always takes time to explain what is being done and why.

What could be improved

They could have better nurses. There was a lovely one last year who used to hold my hand as I am terrified of dentists, so she understood. The new one I have can't understand why I get shaky.

Anything else?

I'm having surgery soon on my jaw, and if the wards are as good as the dental suites, then I'm gonna be happy!
