Oh, and there is that slight problem where you might have to end up paying more or pulling out your own teeth with pliers.
Brits resort to pulling own teeth
Six percent of those questioned in a survey of 5,000 patients admitted they had resorted to self-treatment using pliers and glue, the UK's Press Association reported.
England has a two-tier dental care system with some dentists offering publicly subsidized treatment through the National Health Service and others performing more expensive private work.
But more than three-quarters of those polled said they had been forced to pay for private treatment because they had been unable to find an NHS dentist. Almost a fifth said they had refused dental treatment because of the cost.
The scary thing is the survey was actually run by the NHS. It's probably about as cheery as the numbers can get given that. It's something to think about given all the crap we've seen with every democratic candidate coming out with their own insanities for universal health care initiatives. There might very well be a utopia somewhere down the line (ignoring the fact that utopia actually translates as "no place" in latin) but it's going to be a path of razorblades to get there.
I hear the health care system works well in places like the netherlands, but are you willing to pay taxes of up to 52% to receive it?
