Dismissive, uncommunicative and judgemental

June 22, 2023
I was a patient at The Seaford Dental Practice for eleven years but never happy with the dentists attitude and often felt that he rushed the work that he did as I was on Universal Credit since leaving teaching. He never seemed to explain anything or relate to me as a human being. I felt that he was dismissive. He had to pull a tooth on one occasion, which he had worked on because it was infected underneath. On the plus side, I was pleased that he cleaned my front teeth even though he did not seem to properly look at them teeth on a routine check up. About a year ago I tried again and again to book an appointment but he refused. I persisted and wrote him a letter asking why? He then gave me an appointment without any explanation for the battle that I had been through with the receptionist. I think that I had accidentally missed an appointment but had not received the usual call the day before to remind me. This was my fault on that occasion though. More recently I have received an unsigned letter from him stating that he has randomly dropped 30% of his patients "following a review of our NHS capacity", of which I am one. I think it's unlikely that I'll find another NHS dentist, given the financial crisis in the NHS. Given my experience with this dentist I would not want to reregister, even privately.

Honest and efficient

In the last few months I had two major problems. I contacted the surgery one morning with a broken tooth and it was filled in the afternoon. Later I noticed something alarming and was asked to go straight down so that he could have a look between seeing patients with appointments. It turned out that it was nothing serious and my mind was quickly set to rest.
They have always been efficient and competent, but he is a man of few words. They tell it like it is so that I know exactly where I am.
