"The young dentists do not give ..."

About: University Of Bristol Dental Hospital

(as the patient),

What could be improved

The young dentists do not give enough advice about after-care (the leaflet was insufficient) and on 2nd visit there was no facility for "rinse and spit". No painkillers were mentioned or prescribed. I was told to swallow the foul tasting liquid that was used to clean the wounds - it still smells on my breath. I am off work for a week, which I didn't expect.

Anything else?

The appointment letter from the hospital ( which I had had to ring up about) didn't give any indication of length of time needed for recovery
