British dentists

Where are all the British dentists? Since returning to live in England at the end of 2005, I've had 6 different dentists. At the first surgery, they were Greek, followed by Asian, not sure where from. The surgery I'm with now started me with a Chinese man, he seems to have retired. (Some say not before time.) He was followed with an Italian, a Romanian, and today another Romanian. Don't we train dentists here any more?


  1. How funny...I had to go to the dentist yesterday.
    My dentist is from Senegal. He may be 'a little down in the mouth'......But brilliant,
    AND, he does your teeth while you wait.....! :0)
    AND, what's wrong with Italians......Well, o.k. l am from Sicily.....I'll let you off....! :)

  2. Nothing wrong with Italians, (or even Sicilians I'm sure.) In fact most of the dentists were good, and very nice young men! That's me speaking as an oldie.
