I think you'll find they're not a lot cheaper 'darn sarf'.

Jennyta said...

Probably not, Krip, but I resent the lack of NHS dentists around here.

Michelle said...

Samr price here too Jenny, and $1,300Au for a crown :(

Jennyta said...

Here we now have th situation is some areas where even children can't find an NHS dentist and there is a generation growing up with rotting teeth - exacerbated of course by all the sweets, fizzy drinks etc that they consume.

thats horrendous

That's over twice what I pay my non NHS dentist for the same thing.

You're lucky, my dentist wants £200 for two small fillings and polish!!!

Jennyta said...

Pft, you ain't kidding!
Flighty and Star, it adds insult to injury that prices should vary so much. Is it all down to what the dentist feels he can get away with for the area he's in, I wonder?

bugger me! thats extortionate (or however it spelt) ! ! ! !

I would rather have rotting teeth than pay that... although being 15, and having nhs dental care, all my treatment is free :)
