I got a dental appointment to see a dentist there through referral from polyclinic. The wait was 3 months long!
On the appointment day, I waited about half an hour before I got to see a junior dentist.
He took 45 mins to treat me and I spent 40 mins waiting for his senior to confirm his observation and recommendation. The senior only saw me for 5mins!!When I got home, the filling that the junior dentist did for me dropped out and there was an ache which I had to bear the whole night until the next day when I walked in and insisted I saw the dentist to rectify the pain. I learnt that if this is the kind of skill NDC offers, I would have been better off at KTPH or a private dental clinic around my neighbourhood. The price of treatment was subsidized this round but if I were to compare private rates at NDC and private clinic, its on par. Why would anyone want to go to NDC ? The wait was long, treatment not good, the senior dentists so unavailable and seem to be so few as I had to wait 40mins for one. The most unacceptable thing was that I had to take another day off to return for the work to be redone !! I heard while waiting at the waiting area that there was a patient who had fever and bad ache after a day surgery done the day before and she had to be seen as an emergency case at A&E to stop the bleeding the night before. She returned the same day as me to get the op wound redone as well !!!!My goodness...with such high percentage of redo rates, who would recommend any friend to go to NDC ?
