I visited my NHS dentist because I had had several weeks of a painfully sensitive tooth. He could not see any visible problem and said I should use sensitive toothpaste, but come back if it didn’t improve. Despite some improvement, it got worse again and I made another appointment 8 weeks later where he removed the existing filling and discovered it was pretty bad underneath and needed root canal treatment. This was charged as a separate treatment from when I first visited with the painful tooth. So I have paid £19.70 for the initial visit and then £53.90 for the treatment. Surely as it is the same tooth that was misdiagnosed initially, the first £19.70 should have been deducted from the Band 2 treatment total?
