Brits Pulling Own Teeth and Doing Own Dental Work

Brits are unable to afford trips to the dentist, and some are even resorting to pulling their own teeth and repairing their own bridge and crownwork. No wonder people always goof on Brits for having bad teeth...


The National Health System doesn't cover dental care except for children, pregnant women and necessary work, but necessary work only gets partial coverage.   There is a shortage of dentists in Britain, and the limited number they have are often overworked and overscheduled.  Some Brits are going overseas to have work done. 

I think we ought to be charitable and send a few of ours over...

This is obligatory too...
