Dentists, Opticians etc

Dentists: You have to look after your own teeth – see Keeping your Teeth – if you don’t, you’ll lose them.  You should also visit a dentist for a check-up every six months.  If you’ve allowed some cavities to appear he will fill them and otherwise advise what you need to do.

Opticians:  It is perfectly possible to have poor eyesight without realizing it – how would you know any different?   Take an eye test every few years to find out if you need glasses or contact lenses.

Chiropodists:  If you have anything fairly serious wrong with your feet – such as an ingrowing toe-nail or a verruca – your GP can refer you to a chiropodist for treatment.  However, many people like to visit a chiropodist regularly (annually, semi-annually) to have hard skin removed, nails checked and generally to have a 1000 mile service.

Use to find the services local to you.
