Whilst on the forum 'Scottish Politics' thread a while ago, I answered Fangs question... 'Guess what I am doing the day'. My reply,... Was it 80% of nhs pay for 20% dental activity in Scotland? The answer came back 'average of 80%'.
Now I can understand the amount of time to prepare a dental surgery between patients, but IMO some dentists are ignoring the plight of dental laboratories, as if the laboratories can wait indefinitely, receiving a small amount of work (perhaps a denture repair once a week), whilst they each as dental technicians (dental care professionals)( so described as members of the dental team) have to pay their individual ARF to the GDC due in August. And with the very expensive equipment needed by a dental laboratory to provide a full service to dentists (nhs and 'private') many laboratory owners (who don't get paid direct for nhs appliances) must surely have large loans to service. IMO dentists might help by taking impressions for dentures and crowns, so to help keep laboratories running.
As advertising slogans go.... when they are gone, they are gone!
Sorry to shatter your illusions old boy but I don't possess a pair of sandals! As for socks I have to wear heavy ones inside my safety boots during the day and, for that reason, tend to do without them when I can.I guess you go to the beach wearing strap across leather sandals with your socks still on! Fish and chips in your hand munching as you walk.
At the seaside I would definitely munch fish and chips as I walked along the promenade so you're right. Do you munch fish and chips or are they bad for your teeth?
