Ds (5) needs one, possibly two teeth extracted under GA. The dentist has said that on the NHS the referral will take 4/5 months (😱). Does anyone have a rough idea of the cost involved in going private for this?
@opalescent many years working within Paediatric Dental Service & have never come across a Private GA paediatric extraction service. In the UK, this is done either at 1) Dental Hospitals, 2) via the Community Dental Service @ Local District General Hospitals or 3) within the Specialist Children’s Hospitals like Alder Hey /GOSH. Re inhalation Sedation with Local Anaesthesia, most experienced child dental Sedationists would advise you that 5years are generally pre-cooperative for successful treatment this way.
Where do you live? If you are anywhere near Twicjemham in Surrey, there is a private children's dental practice called Toothbeary that might be able to help. Haven't got personal experience but I remember someone else with a young child using them
Thank you gobbelino, that's really helpful. I do have a local spires, but have actually been referred towards a clinic called Kensington Court in Newport. Do you happen to know anything about this place?
