Nice finds Natalie
Yes, I’m not sure exactly what happened with the dental hygienist - all I know is that she doesn’t work there anymore and the practise manager told us that she had misdiagnosed people and there were communication problems! I think they are suggesting that she was misdiagnosing because she didn’t understand English very well…I’m not totally sure! I don’t know if they meant she was misdiagnosing for profit. It was a very sombre conversation and I was a bit drowsy! I was then told that I would be seeing the head honcho today for another initial assessment (obviously as the first assessment had been done by the hygienist that no longer worked there). Mr DP then asked if head honcho could be my dentist (instead of the newly recruited dentist I was supposed to have) as we had heard so many good things about him and everyone said he was lovely. The practice manager said that he doesn’t really take on new NHS patients (as I guess he does mostly private work) but she would arrange it so he could be my dentist. I was so pleased but now I’m wondering if he thinks I demanded it or something because of the palava. I didn’t even really know there was a problem until they told me I wasn’t having the treatment yesterday. Maybe he doesn’t like filling in all the paperwork for NHS patients! Either way he didn’t make me feel very welcome!
