How can I afford to see a dentist?!
Hello everyone, I need to have some dental work done, but it is not urgent. I understand that some dental practices accept NHS patients. I guess these are the only places that I should consider? Regarding the practices that accept NHS patients, I understand that some have a new patient waiting list for you to join and wait. (Others seem to say sorry, no, but we don't even have one of those, please try elsewhere instead.)
Is it the case that I must find a practice that accepts NHS patients, and that also allows you to be placed on their new patient waiting list, and just simply wait until you can be seen? I guess the waiting time might be years?
Other than that, I can't see how I can see anyone, without paying very high private practice fees?
I am currently on ESA (Support, contrib), and PIP, and I have a total savings worth under the £6K threshold.
Thanks a lot for any comments or advice!
