Hi there

Can someone recommend good private dental in SE postcode that offers maternity exception for wisdom tooth extraction. I understand that only Nhs provides this but Due to covid there is lot of waiting. I have been waiting for a slot for past few months

I didn't think any private dentists allowed you to use maternity exception, mine definitely doesn't

It only covers the NHS I m afraid.

Sorry OP - The exemption only covers NHS care. Private is exactly that, and you will need to pay to get the extraction.

NHS only - most are doing triage over the phone and f2f appointments/treatments for emergencies only.
I had to have a tooth out 2 weeks ago and they fit me in the same day.
