Decided that it was finally time to get the deed over and done with and visit the dentist. While I had time off and all.
After a long and confusing (Brighton road splits its numbering in two - so you get two loads of the same number) walk down Brighton road Andy and myself eventually found the place.
GBP76 later and I had a checkup, clean and 4 X-Rays. Quite spiffy how it's all done digitally now.
I need to have a filling done and require surgery to remove one of my wisdom teeth that are stuck under the gum.
So I am now on the NHS waiting list for that. Should have it done in 6 to 9 months!
