Anyone see today's headline? "NOW WE'VE GOT DENTISTS IN TENTS"
Dentists from Hungary are to begin touring the country setting up surgeries in inflatable tents.
They will be offering their services at a third of the cost of treatment available to patients
I thought his would be good news
To heap added ridicule on the failing National Health Service, the tents will be equipped with state-of-the-art X-ray equipment not available in this country
I had my teeth X-rayed with the NHS
and of course private dentists are going to have better facilities - that's why they're private. And how can you complain about the NHS with its free service not having state-of-the-art X-ray equipment?
In a move that will severely embarrass the Government, the Hungarian travelling circus will offer an initial consultation and information on the cost of treatment in eastern Europe.
The what??? Is that because it's Hungarian?
Patients will be able to choose from a range of procedures including implants, dentures, crowns, bridges, veneers, fillings and tooth whitening.
Yeah, most dentists do, lol
Matthew Elliott, of the TaxPayers’ Alliance, said: “It says a lot about the state of British dentistry that Hungarians are coming to the UK to provide a better and cheaper service. The Government should hang their heads in shame.”
The private dentists in the UK should hang their heads in shame. The (evil by the sounds of it) Hungarians are providing a cheaper service. UK people are not forced to use them. I went for a checkup in at a private dentist a few years back. He ripped me off and lied to me about what needed doing. I got a 2nd opinion with an NHS one. Long story.
The Department of Health’s chief dental officer Barry Cockcroft said: “We are investing an extra £200million in NHS dentistry this year.
“This investment is already showing results. New NHS dental practices are opening all the time to provide more NHS services around the country.
“Our latest figures show that we now have 655 more NHS dentists this year compared with last. Critics who claimed there would be a mass exodus of NHS dentists under the new contract are being proved wrong.
We truly are becoming a second rate country. When will the people of tihs country wake up. The French two centuries got rid of the merde that was destroying their country.......follow suit

PULL THE OTHER ONE!
I think it's fantastic that failed Third World states like those which make up the UK, can benefit from progressive, richer European neighbours such as Hungary.
Perhaps if the billions of pounds the EU receives each year from Britain could be spent here, then we might be able to provide our own state-of-the-art tents and dentists.

No mate, the private dentists here need to pull down their prices (hopefully they will). Nothing to do with the government.
WE ARE WORSE THAN THIRD WORLD COUNTRIES...
... you can see the state of the publics teeth in Britain, just look at the audience in TV Shows.
