Good afternoon, I am Dr Ruff, thank you for contacting us today

I am sorry to hear this. Unfortunately they can do this if you haven't attended annually.

Most NHS dentists are not currently taking on any new patients because of the demand. An option is therefore a private dentist.

Alternatively, there is a NHS number you can call to get support with this. I will find it for you.

My daughter is in work at the moment, but she has been told she needs a root canal because her filling had been leaking, it’s the front top tooth.
