My local garage charges about £45 per hour (main dealer is just above sky level) for labour, and these days that is good value.

But my NHS dentist charges £1,128 an hour!

OK, so the NHS has a scale of charges with three ranges depending on how much treatment you need.

All I needed is a check up and because my teeth are 100% healthy it only takes a minute or less to check and give the all clear. So for my £18.80 on the minimum scale of charges I get one minute or less, i.e. £1,128 an hour.

The lesson is neglect your teeth to get your moneys' worth. Or by costing in the pain factor look after your teeth and pay up.

I prefer the latter. Good teeth come in handy when you can't find your wire stripper.

PS: I'd rather find another kind of stripper.

And that, my son, is why dentists have new cars and holidays and all the other stuff we would like!

I get a check up, de-scaling, polish and x-ray every other visit for £15 on National Health. 20 mins set aside for each appointment so £45 per hour. You're being ripped off!

Personally I avoid dentists, they are all forgein, expensive ect ect, so when my front crown was broken I got the best quote I could £400.
Saved up the money, flew to Slovakia, saw a dentist, got a new front tooth, drunk lots of beer, saw some interesting sights.
Filled my rucksack with tobacco and flew home. 11 years later its still there!
my only disclaimer is that I speak serbo croat so could navigate my way through the system and did not embark on health tourism.

Just bears in tetri planina and the river through kosica, nothing special, unless you want to see my crown.
