I had no idea the situation in the UK is THAT bad. X_X I thought they have similar structure in that trade as germany or france. Why did the dentists leave? o_OOni wrote:And Smithy, remember, I don't live in the enlightened Greater EU, I live in that backwater called the UK...where thousands of dentists have left the trade, the ones that are left have mostly gone private, and in some cases, it's cheaper for people in this country to book flights to Europe for 2 weeks holiday and have full courses of treatments done there at the same time, than have an english dentist have his money grabbing way with his prey....I mean customers....and if I'd have gone to hospital, that since it was a non-emergency I'd probably have to wait anywhere up to 12 hours before anybody would see me.
Dentists can be veeery expensive here too, but at least you never have to wait to get treatment.
