I felt disappointment and alone after this incident. Recently from 8.30am I attended the Bass Coast Health Dental Clinic for what was called a sit and wait time. I felt I was abruptly informed by the receptionist that my pain did not qualify for a "voucher" to be treated privately elsewhere at a subsidized rate. So I sat, unattended, alone and in pain all day. Then at 1.10pm the receptionist whom openly stated that she had made an executive decision to give out other "vouchers" at her discretion.
I have not yet mentioned the fact that I have just completed a full course of care there. During this time, in my opinion, the dental technician was behaving bizarrely and in such an unprofessional manner that I lost a tooth due to the technician missing a decaying area. My most recent experience was for a filling that simply fell out. If this is due to poor quality items being used or just lack of knowledge, I am not sure, however the private dentist (which I must now struggle to pay for) will be advising me and is happy to provide a letter which our local member of parliament will be receiving. As I am a pensioner - I will not find this easy to manage - thought that was the entire reason for public dental access.
