"Toothache?? Sorted"

About: Newcastle Dental Hospital

I arrived early after a weekend of sheer pain.... I was called in 3rd.... Now before i start i shall say myself and dentists just meet on pain as i am petrified... The person was lovely... Asked the relevant questions and sent me off to xray... Back and they explained what they could do.... I opted for a removal of the tooth.... I was sent to another part of the building. The dentist i seen was so so nice and tried their hardest to put me at ease... And even went the extra mile to get me the gel to numb my mouth before the needle... The dentist told me at at any point i needed time out i was to raise my hand on which i did and the dentist and their supervisor stopped and explained everything to me and sorted out my breathing.... The dentist got the tooth out.... Explained aftercare.... And away i went... After 6 hours my pain is just a pain nothing severe but still a little blood... But i can assure you from my heart its nothing compared to the pain that tooth caused.

The dentist was brilliant even when i cried they got me tissues... I cant fault anything that was done today for me
