Mr. Smith is a consumer of Sensodyne Whitening. He has started using Sensodyne Whitening from January. He is a victim of sensitivity. The sensitivity pain occurs while having tea, coffee or ice cream.
Mr. Smith has contacted Sensodyne via phone. He gets the number from the packet of the toothpaste. Sensodyne provides a customer service number in their every pack, so that if any consumer faces problems after using their product they can contact them immediately.
Being a victim of sensitivity, Mr. Smith experiences shooting pain every now and then. He has applied Sensodyne Whitening several times in small quantity on his gum for quick heal as mentioned in the Sensodyne pack. Yet it is not making any differences. It makes him disappointed. It leads him to call Sensodyne Customer Service to complain against the product quality. He has expressed his dissatisfaction over the phone and he is expecting a justification from Sensodyne.
When the customer Care Service operator of Sensodyne Whitening receives the call from Mr. Smith he has listened to his complain carefully and writes it down. Then he has forwarded the call to his higher authority for some permanent solution. The manager of Sensodyne listens to complain of Mr. Smith sincerely and assures him to provide a solution. Although he has accepted that, it is mentioned in the pack that someone can rub small amount of paste to get fast relief, he clears the fact with sincerity that if someone is not getting any positive result after applying the paste on gums he must consult a dentist. Dentist can provide him better advice as may be he has some internal grievous issues in gums that cannot be healed by only using the paste. Sensodyne does not promise to solve the internal injuries. At last, Mr. Smith understands the real problem and stops blaming Sensodyne for his pain.

It is a famous name among the people who use sensitivity relief toothpastes. It faces some competition in the market but it aims at providing clean and valuable service to its customer.
