Just had to have a temp filling because one of my teeth decided to do an impression of the walls of Jericho. Dentist great, took only a couple of mins but overheard a conversation while waiting between the receptionist and a client needing a filling. Turns out the dentists can't do NHS fillings until Nov 1st but can do private ones now and they tag on an extra amount for the PPE.
