"massive toothache"

About: University Of Bristol Dental Hospital

I arrived with a warning from friends all they will recommend is extraction. After a pleasant diagnosis and x ray... They did just that even after consulting a supervisor.... The 2 girls were pleasant and obviously still in training... (Which made me nervous of any recommendation)... I declined the extraction and found a dentist at end of day who was shocked of their diagnosis... I must stress the student dentists were pleasant and friendly... But if you want to keep teeth then avoid a visit.
