What do you do when you bite into a spoonful of muesli and hear an unexpected crunch? I’m guessing you tongue darts to that dodgy filling you’ve had for a while, heart sinking as you realise, yep, it’s gone.
Now, for a multitude of reasons from house moves to busy lives, a lot of us simply aren’t registered with a conveniently local dentist, so when something goes awry, we know we’ll have to face all the hassle of hunting around for a dentist that a) has space b) has a good reputation and c) has space to fit us in before the hole in our molar drives us to despair.
To help with just such scenarios, there’s Toothpick.com, a service which allows you to search by post code for local dentists, bringing up a list and map to show you exactly where each practice is located. Narrow your search by your required treatment type, NHS/Private, language, disabled access, and even if the practice is able to offer specialist care for children or nervous patients.
One you’ve spotted one you like the look of, just click on the listing to read more about the practice, grab directions and opening hours, and see real client reviews and ratings, as long as their clients have left some.
You can even view the names of the dentists working at the practice, and check through a price list to get a sense of how much your treatment might cost, which is handy.
With many listings you can simply click again to book your appointment online there and there. It’s that simple!
Where online booking isn’t available, a phone number will always be shown so that you can get yourself booked in with minimal fuss.
The best thing about the Toothpick.com service is that it’s completely free to use, so instead of battling through pages of search results and then taking a blind guess at which dentist might be best, only to find they’ve no spaces, now you can just pop online and do the whole thing in minutes. Brilliant.
