Simon Pegg

I don't like going to the dentist, but I have to go.  In May I was told I needed to have a filling replaced, and now it's at the point where the old filling is practically non-existent and i keep having to poke bits of food out of it.

I went to a private dentist until about 18months ago.  I would waste £50 for a 10 minute checkup from a dentist who looked like Simon Pegg he would always insist I visited the hygienist too for an extra £30, and she spent 20minutes delivering oral torture - poking and prodding my teeth and gums with every sharp implement she could find in her toolbox.  She always asked me How often do you floss? and every time I replied never.  I thought, what's the fucking point, if I'm paying you to do it for me.

It was Simon Pegg who did the filling that needs replacing.  He must have only done it 2 years ago, and it cost me nearly £100.

I go to an NHS dentist now, I don't see why I should be paying £50 per checkup for something I really dislike, I'm much happier paying the NHS rate of £16.

The downside is that I've tried getting an appoinment for my filling, but can't get one until October 2010 - that's 2 months away!


  1. I had the best dental experience ever. Dr.Behrooz "The Best dentist in Richmond Hill" immediately realized that I have dental anxiety, using calming techniques combined with his witty humour, I didn’t even realized when I got freezing. He is extremely knowledgeable providing top notch work. Couple of my teeth had deep cavities with very high possibility of needing root canal. There were done so well that not only my sensitivity was gone but I didn’t even need to go back for adjustment which was the the case with me going to other dental offices. I definitely go back and recommend him.
