Why don’t dentists give guarantees with their work? Recently I had my check up and was told I needed 3 fillings. Fair enough. And they even gave me an estimate for the work (NHS) of £32. When the work was finished I was told the bill was £66. Why the discrepancy? Because I was told the lovely Pedro actually did 6 fillings. “No he didn’t. I was there and there were only 3 fillings.” But it would seem that on some teeth there was more than one wee filling (back and front) so it was charged extra. Hmm.
Then a week later one of them fell out. Back to dentist yesterday and he said he’d fix it and had found another. Estimate for £25. So why am I having to pay for a filling that wasn’t put in well enough? Is a week acceptable for the life of a filling?
Of course, the lovely Pedro is so delicious I don’t imagine many will complain.
