    Well, that’s better than the NHS, where 100,000+ every year have to have all their teeth surgically removed at a hospital because they have never been able to see a dentist.

    Two missed or ignored appointments in a week, and it’s no longer an emergency. Be glad he’s still willing to try to squeeze you in.

    Here’s a pair of Vise Grips™, knock yourself out.

    Drop him as an unreliable patient, John. Then maybe he’ll realize how good he has it.

    NHS… (Britan’s) National Health Service?

    Yes. NHS is the UK’s health care system.

    BTWFBFW is in Canada – which also has national health (by each province)
    It is my understanding that neither Canada or the USA provide adult dental care through their various government health programs. If you don’t have private insurance through your employer or union, you are out of pocket.

    It’s always the right of a businessman to refuse service.

    You’re right about the US here, but I don’t know about Canada. As a state employee, I get health and dental insurance thru my place of work. Other people are not so lucky.

    Wait till he tells you he forgot his wallet.

    …and, “Would you bill my insurance first and see what they pay?”
    As Foghorn Leghorn said, “That guys got more nerve than a bum tooth.”

    Here’s a piece of string and there’s a door… you could take care if it right now, if that’s more convenient.

    Well, I am self employed, I go to the dentist twice a year, and here’s a concept—I pay for it myself. Yep, I suck it up and pay for it. I’m not wealthy, my husband and I only have one car, and yet I manage to pay for it myself. If I need a crown, we cut back on other things until it’s paid for.

    On another note, I often feel sorry for doctors. I had one tell me once that one reason they are always behind is people call in with a single complaint and then when the doc comes in they have a laundry list. He said he wished people would just tell the receptionist when they call that they have several things that need to be discussed.

    In Quebec, we didn’t get adult national dental, but our employers were required to provide eye and dental.

    I would make him wait until he was near faint from the pain…
