ESCALATING dental treatment prices in England forced a Redditch man to face his fears and take to the skies to get the help he needed.
Richard Woolley, 62, had post crowns for several years but was getting increasingly fed up with the constant problems and having to have them replaced. He tried dentures but they started to cause problems as they became loose and kept dropping down.
His NHS dentist couldn't offer a better solution so Richard started to explore other options but was put off by the price of a private consultation, which was up to £180.
He then spotted a newspaper article about dental tourism in Budapest and did some research. From the beginning he was impressed by Smile Savers. The consultation fee was far less than in England which immediately put his mind at ease. The only problem was that in his 62 years, he had never flown.
