I know it’s a bit weird to review a dentist but, blimey: this one is amazing. It’s a private dentist but at NHS prices — mortifyingly, not having been to a dentist in three years, I can’t remember how much the damn things are in the first place. My housemate recommended it to me as she got her teeth whitened there(£200 take home) after her new patient exam and clean(£30) which all seemed pretty good value. I went along for the latter and was a bit resigned to yet another hideous dentist experience from hell, but far from it. The studio is very clean and relaxing(looks a bit spa-ish in fact, except filled with posters for good teeth) and Eva, my dentist is blonde, Swedish and knows exactly what she’s doing. My exam was very thorough and my clean and polish just showed what a cowboy my childhoos dentist was: I was always used to being poked by that horrible scalpel until I bled, but didn’t feel a thing beyond the usual crystals of paste flying around(=as always, that texture is just grim) I was patiently saving up to get my crowns replaced this summer at my old dentist(a squillion pounds, give or take) but am now definitely going to have them at the Dental Studio, £1000 for two porcelain ones. And who knows, I might get my teeth whitened too. God knows I’ve been grinning like a fool about finding a «keeper» dentist, I might as well make them look a bit nicer.
