  • I was in the unfortunate position to need a dentist last year. After a few recommendations I opted to visit the surgery which is located  along the street at the mini roundabout beside the post office, where the Bar Camber and the Central off licence is on each corner. It is situated a short walk along that street on the left. I was seen by a lady dentist after a short wait. I found the surgery to be spotlessy clean and the staff very helpful. I was given an examination,an xray and some treatment for 20 euros which I thought was very reasonable. Hopefully I will never need to use the dentist again but if I did  I would not hesitate to use this surgery.

  • Yes Definately use Gunner Dressler, he and his partner have been very good, ive not heard any complaints about them, and they are reasonably priced as well compared to some of their counterparts !

    Go down the side street at Bar Camber next door to shoe shop. they are open from 09:00 to 13:00 then 16:00 to 19:00 Monday to Friday.

    Ciao for now.

  • A dentist which has not been mentioned here is mine!!!  I ended up with a problem about 3ish years ago and basically most of my teeth were broken and a bridge of 4 teeth finally gave up the ghost and I had finally reached the point of no return!!!  I was recommended to the Dental Surgery in Playa San Juan which is situated in te Santa Marta complex so you go along the coast road at San Juan and look for Su Casa or Chrissies bar and it is in that complex. Their telephone number if 922 866464.  I have undergone more than two years of treatment obviously at an expense because of the work required and have beautiful permanent bridges which replace the rotten teeth I had.  It took so long because of my infirmity of being unable to sit in the chair for more than an hour at a time.  I cannot praise them enough for their work whhich I suppose is more orthandontics but they are wiz at all their work and I don't think that their charges are out of the way.  They are French based and part of a group of dentists.  A friend of mine is currently having extensive treatment with them and can't like me speak more highly of them!  I can't speak about the others because I hav'nt experienced them.  Its another option!

  • My GP in England has just told me that any one who leaves England and stays away from the country for 5 years lose their rights to free National Health Care. Never heard this before and don't know if it's true. Could be something to do with unpaid NI stamps.

  • Well as my dentist is no longer doing NHS treatment it wouldn't matter if that was true but I don't think it can be.  What I do know for fact is that foreign nationals admitted to the UK for a limited time can't have have recourse to publc funds qnd that treatment under the NHS isn't classsed as "public funds".   

    Back to my question though - has anyone any information about dentist prices and another question - how booked up does the dentist get?
