If you value your teeth you won't ask for a NHS or Cheap Dentist. They're nearly all in my experience disillusioned, bored and uncaring. But that's just my experience not having the money to pay for Private Dental Care. I did go to a Private Practitioner once and his slogan was 'Where Here To Make You Smile' he didn't. And it cost me an arm and a leg too. Anyone know of a NHS/Cheap Surgeon?

I have found the Albion Street Dental Practice to be pretty good. As far as I know they take NHS patients

Don't go near Albion St, I had a terrible experience with them. They recommended 1500++ of work - I thne paid for a private consulation elsewhere in Lewes as a second opinion and got it done for 200. Staff and dentists always changing there. Avoid.

The one at the bottom of School Hill is great. I've been a patient there for over 8 years and they have always been excellent.

I can thoroughly recommend Lewes Dental clinic above Monsoon. My daughter had an accident a couple of weeks ago at school and broke her tooth off at the bone. The dentists saw us immediately without an appointment and got it sorted. Normally my daughter won't even walk in the door of a dentists let alone have treatment, but they put her at such ease she has no problem.

Lewes Dental Clinic at the bottom of School Hill I found to be lacking of 'Interpersonal communication skills'.
Is it right that you are no longer are able to swill your mouth out between drilling?
There isn't even any facility to swill your mouth in the dental room!
The woman told me, if I wanted to 'Swill my mouth out' then I would have to use their sink in the bathroom off of the waiting room??
Is that standard practice?
Is that what Health & Safety have done for the British Dental Industry?

Did you make a complaint then ROM ? my family use school hill too and never had any problems.

Belladonna, No I didn't make a complaint and it was 3 years ago.
I just 'stupidly?' took it as the dentist at her word, that it was probably down to new Health & Safety rules.
I didn't like them there.
The receptionist was helpful & kind, but not in the 'Mouth Wash' point.
I don't know what the other Dentist's practicing there were like because I didn't see them. But the Dentist & her assistant I did see weren't helpful.
The assistant technician looked like she was about to cry all the time and was mute stood in the corner of the room for most of the time. The Dentist was no better herself, she was very officious & curt. Its no wonder I didn't go back.
I've yet to find a reasonable Lewes Dentist that can show some empathy.

I think the practise of 'swilling your mouth out' died out years ago. I haven't had to do it for years, the dental nurse uses a vacuum and water hose. Try using their postal service next time !!
