Can you not get an emergency appointment at your local hospital?

Er no its not, you only get it if your illness or injury is caused by your time in Service....otherwise NHS as above.

I can't believe the amount of TA punters I've met with a smile like a vandalised graveyard, the gopping mouthed civvy horrors. With the amount of bleating you cnuts do about dental treatment, you might think a few of you would invest in a toothbrush. Or should you be able to claim on JPA for that too?

Even if you did get free dental, most of you would still cut about with a front set that could scoff a sandwich through a tennis racket.

Or you could burn a bit of hazel wood and waft the smoke over your head, about as affective.

Ok, oil of clove may have an affect on early toothache (if it is still at reversible pulpitis stage, i.e. s just sensitive to hot and cold, not pressure or throbbing) but once at the irreversible stage (spontaneous pain, throbbing, pain spread to gum) then it will do nothing.

Whisky, all it does it act as pain killer and there's no point swilling it round mouth, that does nothing. Better off taking neurofen and paracetamol leapfrogging if pain severe.

But basically see a dentist. Even if it means paying. If on a low income then get an HC1, fill it out and you may get all or some of costs reinbursed.

I tried that a couple of years ago - Saturday afternoon, abcess under one of my back teeth and no reply from my own dentist. In fcuking agony, phoned the local hospital to be told by some snotty female that as I had a dentist of my own I was not eligible to use the emergency dentist service which was reserved for those without. In other words, junkies, other assorted dole monkeys, Latvian doormen, Portugese fruit-pickers and Romanian beggars could access the service but I, who have paid income tax and National Insurance for 31 years, get fcuk all.

Or probably if you'd phoned your dentist they'd have a message saying who to call out of hours.

Your own dentist is responsible for out of hours care for you, they get paid to. And if those folk you mentioned have a dentist then they too would have to go see their own dentist, and many of them do. I do Out of Hours dentistry for a Health Board which is hospital based and the registered patients we see are those with whom we have a local agreement, ie their own dentist is on the rota, so they don't have to be on call just for their own patients every weekend.
I can assure you the out of hours is mainly used by those without their own dentists not the pickings of those the Daily Wail love to blame.
Different set ups in different parts of the country.
And as for paying income tax and NI, what the feck has that got to do with anything? You pay for dentistry in the UK whether NHS or private.

You have obviously never visited the reception of an ATR Dental Centre and seen the state of recruits' teeth! The only differences between the regular army and the TA, is that the regular soldier has a company clerk to book his appointment and a CSM to make sure he gets there!

Don't forget 5 Stone in weight, pasty skin and a beret that looks like a neglected set of bagpipes.
