"Wisdom tooth removal"

About: Newcastle Dental Hospital

I cannot comment on any service received yet but I can comment on to the waiting list times. My Dentist referred me the Dental Hospital on 20th June 2016, I received a letter dated 15th July saying I had been added to the waiting list and I would received a appointment date shortly. After 7 weeks I called, not easy as they do not include the direct number on the letter only the main switchboard. I was informed that I joined the waiting list 1st July and my current appointment/consultation will be in October, since July I have re-visited my dentist, my gums are now enflamed causing discomfort and prescribed antibiotics in addition to the pain. I truly cannot accept such length waiting times.
