A local dentist is being criticised for not visiting his sick grandmother in three years, despite ordering all his patients to visit him every 6 months.
Marc Newbold’s patients say they’re shocked to hear he’s neglecting his own family.
“He seems like someone who has his shit together,” says Irene Hosking. “He’s gets cranky if I don’t have appointments with him at least twice a year.”
Marc Newbold’s own mother is accusing him of hypocrisy.
“If he can’t even visit his own sick grandma, then how seriously can he order his patients to see him every 6 months?” asks Kerren Newbold.
“Also, do my son’s patients really need to see him that frequently if they brush regularly?”
The Bondi Junction dentist does acknowledge a visit to his grandmother is overdue.
“As soon as I have a cancellation, I’ll be there.” he says.
