JA: Have you had any past treatments or tests related to the filling? If so, what were the results?
Customer: Hello, I have lost a big fiiling from the right side
JA: Got it. Can you see or feel anything else in your mouth that is causing concern?
Customer: It has been a problem as the tooth is a shell and the last filling was just a quick fix by my dentist in Keighley. It is rough and a bit jaghed and a tongue target. I would prefer to have it yanked out rather than mess about with a big crown I'm 77 and still have several teeth:)
JA: Thank you so much for your time. Finally, is there anything else in your medical history you think the Dentist should know?
Customer: I have had regular visits sinc 1965 in Australia and from 1969 - 1994 in the good old USA and after that in Keighley

  3. Go to the NHS website and you can contact a dentist from there

My dentist told me to call 111

I was disappointed as I thought I would be speaking to someone who would do the dental work for me but this wasn't the case. He told me how I could find a practising dentist during these trying times so all in all I paid £39 and didn't move forward as expected. You really ought to be clearer what one can expect from these phone calls as it didn't expedite my situation.
