It must have given the punters a warm glow if they knew that they were helping you to jump on and off planes, exporting £££ to the Eurozone, while storing a shed load of brownie points with Mrs. Pepper! The way that the £ has slumped against the € since then would have hiked your bill a tad, but probably not to £25000. Good luck to you, well done.Perhaps not really on thread, but around 6 years back my wife's NHS dentist told her that she had a bone problem, and that she should consider implants. We went on-line and checked with 2 dentists, one in Victoria, and one in Islington. Both came in at circa £25,000. We went back on-line and settled on a Belgian dentist with a practice in Portugal. We flew out after emailing him to arrange an appointment. He checked her out, sent her for an MRI scan of her upper and lower jaw and said that it could be done for around £9750, but would incur 3 visits. We accepted this, had a great job done, plus 3 mini vacations. Even with flights, car hire, and accommodation we came out in front. With the added bonus that my wife has a movie star smile that he has guaranteed will last for years. The fact that the dentist could have passed for George Clooney had nothing to do her deciding on him to do the job!
