Been to dentist who wants £1400 for root canal treatment - apparently it has to be private as isn't covered on nhs.
Is this really the case...must be able to get this on nhs?

Absolute nonsense. I got the same story from Albion Street dentist (who do a deal with their mate in North St). I was with Dr Royce for 30 years.
Went to the dentist above Monsoon got it done for £39 plus price of a new crown (about £200 I think it was).

yeah this was albion street. That's outrageous then as not given an nhs option at all.

North Street are an absolute con. Overcharge and tell us that stuff cant be done on NHS- turns out anything can be done. Failed to notice bad decay.
Appaling having been a patient for over 20 years. now feel as an nhs patient they dont care and will charge what they want. NHS has standard prices.
Does anyone know a decent dentist???

Are they registering NHS patients, does anyone know? The practice on School Hill make you wait three months if you're a new NHS patient, which feels slightly like a ploy to persuade you to go private because they certainly have appointments (I asked).

The high street dentists do have a waiting list because they are so busy,
This is not surprising as they are so good and very honest.
I see mr kell on the nhs but think the other dentists see most nhs patients
What I like is if I have a problem they always do their best to see you.
A really friendly place .
Worth the wait of you cannot go private.
