My daughter of 18 has just been at her new dentist (after skoletandplejen) and diagnosed with 8 holes, the 4 are serious. The gums are also problems with. The dentist said to her that he does not understand that skoletandplejen not have done or said something, when she was there last. WHAT CAN WE DO? HOW CAN WE DETERMINE WHETHER THERE REALLY ARE 8 HOLES?? IS it skoletandplejen not to have done its work well enough – or is it the other dentist, there are errors on the! WHAT DO WE DO??

looking forward to your reply.



Dear Else,

It is difficult to comment on your question without even having seen the photographs and journal by the school dentist, and now with the new dentist. 8 holes sounds very violently. Talk with the new dentist to get the requested medical record and x-rays of the skoletandplejen, then you can look at it together.

Hope you can use my answer.

With kind regards
