"Free dental treatment"

About: Berkshire East PCT

(as the patient),

I get free dental treatment with my tax credits, but I feel that if you go to a NHS dentist in Bracknell with your tax credit card, you get third class treatment.

I went to one surgery a couple of months ago with a tooth ache, but they said there was nothing wrong with my teeth. In my opinion this was because they learnt I was not paying.

I then went to a private surgery, but takes on non fee paying people, and I need a wisdom tooth out, a couple of fillings and root canal treatment.

This surgery is happy to treat me, and I am being sent to hospital for the wisdom tooth.

Based on my experience, I can't help but feel that you pay your taxes to pay for the NHS and when you are down they kick you in the teeth.
