I also have nothing but high praise for dentistry over here. I have used dentist at Bumrungrad than got my smarts and have seen Silom Dental for years on now.

You have to find one that does not want to do unnecessary work. Just had a large crown done this week, quite a difficult job for 8k and that is in Bangkok. One the other hand I have been scammed by a certain dental hospital in the past for 6k for a filling not really needed. Always ask the prices first, and if in doubt a second opnion.

My experiences with Thai dentists have been exemplary.

My first was at a clinic in CM, where I had extensive restorative work carried out at a fraction of the cost in Australia.

All work carried out by specialists in their area of expertise.

 

Earlier this year I face planted onto tiles, causing trauma which required rebuilding and restoration. I expected the work to be painful,  and to take extended time, however it was not painful (good anaesthesia) and carried out over several long sessions by a professor of dentistry , a prosthodontist,  and expert dental assistants.

 

I have been warned about the expertise of Thai dentists by some dentists in Australia, but the specialist care, the equipment, the speed of the repairs and the end product has been beyond expectation, and so affordable by comparison.

 

 

 

Indeed. My experiences have been so positive that when I retired from teaching one of the things I considered doing was to get people from Western countries to go on tours to Thailand combined with dental procedures. With the difference in costs and the excellent work they could effectively have a holiday for free.

So far great experience at the dental department in Mae Hong Son hospital. Looking forward to getting partials. I left the previous ( poorly fitted US made) set at a former girlfriend's house, and she declined to return them. 😆

I had an appointment with a dentist who specializes in bridgework. He had a good look and told me it would be best to leave the bridge alone until it came loose or broke on its own. He said that the pin work was so bad that he would likely cause more damage trying to remove the bridge resulting in much more work needing to be done. I was charged nothing for the consultation. Very professional. He could have earned quite a bit of money and I would have been none the wiser.

There are some superb schools for dentistry in Thailand. -Such as Chulalongkorn University in BKK, Khon Kaen University for two examples.

Which dentist would you recommend then, for some major work, crowns and bridge? I went to a dental hospital in Bangkok years ago, it looked professional but quite expensive. Later to a hospital in Phitsanulok, happy with the dentists there,  but not sure about their technicians.
