When you have a bad tooth ache or are in pain from your wisdom teeth, you are recommended to see an Oral Surgeon. You say OK. Now you call the office, you’re in pain (nothing is more painful than a tooth ache) and they say to you “the dr. can see you in 3 weeks for a consult first”. Your first thought is “are you kidding me, 3 weeks!!!!!”
Now the search continues, you call other offices and they say the same thing. I get it, they are busy, but how is a person to live and go on with their daily lives with that kind of pain. Impossible.
A good friend of Lauren’s is going though that right now. We can relate to her, because when Lauren was having pain with her wisdom teeth, she had to wait almost a month before they would see her. Even with her transplant team from Boston calling, nothing sooner.
In this day and time, when a person needs medical care, especially for mouth pain, it should be addressed. Any comments on this subject ?????????
