half a scale and polish
I rang the clinic this morning and left a message. I received a call back from the clinic after lunch. I asked if there was a hygienist, as I would like my teeth cleaned and how much this would cost. The woman on the phone said it would be 50 euro, so I asked if they would have an appointment for today. This was agreed for 5pm.
The procedure began and after the dentist cleaned and polished my bottom teeth I was told I would have to come back to have the top ones cleaned at a later date. I was shocked but agreed to this. I was charged 50 euros and requested a receipt, still in shock at this stage. I left the surgery and sat in my car for a moment to compose myself as I was feeling angry and upset at having paid 50 euro for half of my teeth to be cleaned. I thought maybe the next appointment would be free so I went back inside to confirm this with the dentist.
But no this was not the case, I was told that I would have to pay another 50 euro for the top teeth to be cleaned at a later date. I was disgusted and explained that this was not what was agreed on the phone earlier that day. I also explained that in the past with other dentists I had had my full set of teeth cleaned for the agreed price of 50 euros.
I am also a medical card patient and the dentist knew this as she gave me a free check up and took my medical card details. I cannot afford to pay 50 euro to have half my teeth cleaned and now I will have to go and pay another 50 euro to have the job finished.
I am livid and would under no circumstances recommend this dentist to anyone.
