Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi, Has the surgery been finished on the bottom jaw?
I would suggest you to speak to the dentist, not just the receptionist, You can do this at any time this is your right, and to find out why things have not gone to plan.
he speaks through his receptionist so I will have to be pushy#
The dentist can then explain to you in full why things have not gone to plan. It may be very costly to change dentists at this time as you have already signed a contract for the first lot of treatment. Yes demand that you have an appointment with the dentist, a receptionist is not medically qualified to be able to assist you.
I would also recommend as you are in the UK, you speak to your GP also, and ask for a referral to the Maxofacial unit at the local hospital.
They would be able to assist you and it would be care under the NHS which may avoid large sums of fees. This may also be the best way to get a 2nd opinion by a consultant surgeon.
that's a good idea
No problems, if you continue to get problems with your Dentist you can complain to the local community health council in your area. If you could leave a positive rate below that would be great.
You can also return to ask any questions at any time.
