As the title suggests are dentist's taking liberties...
Used same same dentist for about 10 years . I genuinely look after myself. Including Teeth,

Check up today.. £22.50
Live with that..then would I like my teeth whitening. My teeth are whiter than episode of friends with Ross..
I declined the offer £299
I have 1 filling 1 crown..

Dentist enquires would I like my crown replacing ? I asked why.
Dentist said I have good teeth spoilt by my crown..,
(bottom rear).. so unless you want me to shout. Totally invisible..
Price for implant £1,900. I cheekily replied for a set.. Nooò
Per tooth..
Not only was I misinformed, but the dentist contradicted herself on two occasions, I opted for scale & polish £49.00

Rant over

My dentist is always 20mins late even if your the first of the day

Sounds like your dentist is in need of a few quid, probaly trying to get his mortgage for his mansion paid off this year and get a few family holidays to the Caribbean paid for, heh heh.

If you check the NHS charges scale, a scale and polish is included withing the £22.60 band one work. The dentists are ripping people off because they never do the scale and polish these days.

The hygienist did the after work
Scale, pressure washed underneath of my gums. And a decent polish, I never questioned the bill. I dare not ask for a breakdown of the bill...as my next visit i can here my dentist asking
(is it safe)

Thank god I've an NHS dentist. Crown was around £120. Checkup is only £6.60.

She still manages to drive a new Mercedes 4x4 every 12 months.
