Where I begin I'm sat here in tears, my 1st appointment is at 2pm I feel sick my teeth are a mess I cracked my front tooth that has gone rotten well must if my teeth are rotten I'm a 30 year old. I have a NHS card will they be able to do anything. I'm not even sure if I will be able to open my mouth and show then what's inside I'm so embarrassed that I have let it get this far I have eaten for days or slept for more than a few hours :(

Just really wanted to say Good Luck...getting through today will be the hardest part...once you've opened your mouth you will instantly feel relieved that you're going to get help.

I hadn't been for over twenty years so longer than you :) and things were not as bad as I thought...and like I say just finally letting someone see what was going on and knowing that we could start dealing with it was such a relief....try and be strong and well done, let us know how you got on....YOU CAN DO IT!

I hope you did make it to your appointment and that it all went well.

If you didn't manage to get there, still please come on and tell us how you are feeling and we can still offer you support and comfort. A lot of people cannot make it to their first appointment.

I hope you manage to find the time to come and let us know how you are. :)
