I wish I was starting here with a better post! I just had my first dental experience in Holland yesterday, and have been awake all night in pain from it.
I just moved here in March from the US, and don't have a dentist yet. I need a tooth removed - the short version is that through many tears and pain yesterday, they sent me home with a half pulled tooth and said I have to come back the next day to finish the job.
I am frankly scared out of my mind to go back there today and have a repeat performance.
I did find an American dentist in Amsterdam, but it looks like they do mostly cosmetic stuff.
What I am hoping is any advice on how to get proper treatment here? I am used to the cushy ways of doing it in the states - nice and slow, and then they give you a prescription for some kind of strong painkiller for when you get home.
Do the dentists here just not care if they send patients home to suffer? I hate being so melodramatic, but I can't believe what's happened to me so far with this, and I'm terrified now to go back.
Thanks in advance for any help!
