My NHS Dentist does an annual check-up that lasts 10 to 20 seconds , yes seconds ,which costs £16.50 then insists that I have a session with their " Dental Hygienist" every 6 months ( at a cost of c£27 per 15 minute session )to remove plaque from my teeth.( TOTAL COST £70pa )
My previous NHS Dentist used to give my teeth a quick plaque removal treatment as part of his more thorough 5 minute check-up.
My wife's dentist currently removes any traces of plaque from her teeth as part of her annual check-up.( ie TOTAL COST £16.50 pa )
Is anybody else concerned about this or is it just me ?
