Re: Dental insuranceI have dental insurance, I had no choice when my dentist ceased to take NHS patients anymore following the introduction of the 'new contracts' by Tony Blair in 2006 .
Re: Dental insurancePrivate dental treatment is the way to go. Make sure your torturer is list on the General Dental Council website: http://olr.gdc-uk.org/SearchRegister and if you have particular problems get a Restorative Specialist to sort you out......worth every penny, particularly suing a dentist for incompetence!
Re: Dental insuranceI can't speak for the UK, but in the US .... my advice for anyone choosing dental ins. is to pay for the better ins. that allows you to choose any dentist. It is best to choose dentists that OWN their own office. Stay away from corporate dentists that are simply employees with no vested interest in the practice.
