About: Charles Clifford Dental Hospital

Anything else?

I was referred to Charles Clifford by NHS direct after suffering with chronic wisdom teeth pain. Unfortunately I couldn't be seen for three days (that's how their system works) because my swelling wasn't severe enough. I took the appointment though because everywhere else i tried in Sheffield wouldn't see me until July/August. I turned up and was seen on time (a first for me with dentists). I was introduced to a 4th year student who was very friendly and competent. I was sent for an x-ray and it turned out I need all my wisdom teeth out.....only one today though. I was sent upstairs where I met a 3rd year student who was going to pull the tooth. I was a little nervous about this and Im not too good with dentists anyway ( pulled one of my own to avoid going once, never again) but he put my mind at ease. My tooth was ratherlarge and required a change of pliers half way through but i didnt feel a single bit of pain. Very impressed with the 2 dentists and the nurses. in totali dont thihnk i was waiting more than 2 minutes.
