Tenerife dentist ignores Irish bookings due to no-shows

Irish patients will no longer be able to make bookings with a Clinica Dental in Tenerife after a number of people did not show up to their appointments following a surge in bookings.

According to the Garda National Immigration Burea, up to 40% of those travelling to sun destinations had letters for dental appointments.

The dental practice stated that it had received five requests per day over the past two weeks from Irish people who specifically asked for written proof of their appointments.

Roberta Beccaris, Clinica Dental Office Manager, stated that she grew suspicious of the fact that a number of people were not showing up to their appointments and that some of the patients were significantly younger than their typical Irish customers.

As a result, the dental practice is now ignoring emails from Irish people looking to book appointments as they stated that they were preventing people who were in need of dental treatment from getting seen by a dentist.
