NHS at its best

Yesterday I was fortunate enough to be one of early patients at this new Dental Hospital it only having opened to patients this week.

I was given good instructions about access, and parked off site nearby. The electronic check in facility worked well, and acknowledged I had registered. After a short wait of 15 minutes I was interviewed by an assessor for my condition. I was examined, and taken to the imaging department for X ray photographs. Another visit to the assessor confirmed that my condition would necessitate surgery, but that as it was a straight forward case, the surgery could be performed if I cared to wait.

An hour later, the procedure was performed with great care, and I was asked throughout whether I was happy to proceed at each stage.. Post surgery information was given verbally and in writing to take home.

In all the treatment, of assessment,imaging and surgery had take about three hours, which I consider is first class. The staff were all very caring and kind, whilst being efficient at their tasks.

Thank you BDH I cannot give you less than full marks!

I was completely delighted with every aspect of my visit.

The new building and facilities are a credit to all involved but my main praise goes to the staff. I was very impressed with the respect charm and reassuring competence throughout. There was no pain or even discomfort from my gum surgery at any stage even after the anaesthetic wore off. Not least, I was called at the appointment time with no waiting. Many thanks.

Fantastic Treatment!!!

After an horrendous visit to my local dental practice the dentist attempted to take my back tooth out, an hour or so later said I can't carry on you will have to be referred to Birmingham Dental Hospital!, well you can imagine my horror the thought of it petrified me.
I had worked myself up for nothing,everyone at the hospital from admin staff to dentists were fab! I had a straight forward extraction with no problems whatsoever, the dentist and dental nurse were so caring and kind they explained everything to me from start to finish, I would definitely recommend.

Terrible service

Had appointment booked via nhs 111 for 9 30 am now bear in mind they open at 9 am, I waited for an hour 15 mins before I asked why the wait and was informed by reception that nhs can't book appointments. A complete joke

I am sorry you had a disappointing experience during your visit to the Birmingham Dental Hospital.

Patients who require urgent dental care and who are unable to book an appointment with a high street dentist (General Dental Practitioner) are welcome to phone NHS 111 to book an appointment at Birmingham Dental Hospital.

Unfortunately it sounds like you may have arrived at the hospital with an appointment, and did not register with the reception staff but took a seat to wait to be called. When you spoke to a member of staff after waiting 15 minutes you were advised that the hospital does not book patients for this service (which is correct, appointments are booked by NHS 111); however it is not clear whether you missed the appointment as made through 111 or whether there was a further break down in communication and you were not seen at all.

If you were not seen, and still require an appointment please phone NHS 111 again to book another appointment, and when you arrive at the hospital please speak to a receptionist on the ground floor.

To help us understand how this happened to you, and to avoid it happening to others, I would be grateful if you would give me a call on 0121 466 7128 or email alison.last@bhamcommunity.nhs.uk

I look forward to hearing from you

Kind regards

Amazing service

I've been to Birmingham Dental Hospital after having a really painful decay tooth wich was infected, the nerve was exposed. I waited 2 days and finally went to see a private emergency dentist, they basically told me that I needed to pay £800 for extraction and other stuff doing. They made me feel really guilty about the all experience.

I thought about it for ages, should I give a chance to NHS? Should I pay £800 and struggle with money for months? I called this private dentist and he said he could not see me until 3 weeks, perfect when you're in pain...... At this point, I simply gave up and went to Birmingham Dental Hospital.
I cannot express my gratitude enough, the place is really really clean, new and modern. The staff was really caring and gentle. I suffer from dental phonia and nearly cried twice and they made me feel so comfortable. I had my extraction done, I didn't really hurt to be honest. It was a really good experience.
