I have broken a front tooth, it is hanging out of the gum, I am in pain. I cannot get into my registered dentist until Friday (although they will ring me as soon as they get a cancellation). I contacted the Emergency Dental Service in Shrewsbury who said they will get me out of pain, unfortunately I mentioned that I was registered with a dentist and they told me they cannot help at all.
Surely as an emergency dental service they should be able to treat emergencies - what if I lived in Scotland and was visiting Shrewsbury.
