Dentists and dental care in Hanoi

Published by at 3:43 pm under Health & safety

Whether you’re struck with toothache or looking for some cheap repair or enhancement work, Hanoi has its fair share of dental clinics willing to help.



Firstly, what’s available?

From a cosmetic point of view, teeth whitening is popular and is certainly much cheaper than in Western countries. The problem with teeth whitening is that you need a few repeat visits — not always possible when travelling — and ideally need to do some home treatments in between visits as well, but if you’re serious about it, it may be worth a few extra days in Hanoi. Just use the time to visit the surrounding areas: appointment 1, Halong Bay, appointment 2, Sapa, appointment 3, etc …

A visit to the hygienist seems to be all the rage back home, but comes at a price. In Hanoi, expect to pay around US$20-25 for an appointment — and a fresh, clean mouth.

And if you do have an tooth emergency — broken crown, abscess, filling falls out, root canal work — they can be dealt with too. Orthodontic procedures are also available.

So where’s good to go?

One of the top rated places, Peace Clinic, is where my partner elected to go for a spot of teeth whitening: having been a smoker for 16 years he was certainly in need. He had a cap replaced and three whitening sessions and it cost under US$200. His smile now glows in the dark.

Three others worth checking out are One Dental — who “look forward to seeing you smile” — Westcoast International Dental Clinic and the Australian Dental Clinic.

All the above get positive feedback for their professionalism and sensitive-approach — just what you need when visiting the dentist. They also offer a full range of services. Prices vary — as far as I’m aware the latter is the cheapest — so it’s worth calling more than one.

    Just a comment on Australian Dental Clinic, last year had a crown on my upper back molar. Was guaranteed by the Australian educated dentist, who was the only person who spoke good English. On Saturday the crown came out. I rang in error this place instead of Westcoast (where I now go). I asked if this place when the receptionist who in terrible English replied it was Westcoast in Tay Ho. I went on Sunday at the time she said 8:30am. I went to Westcoast, and noticed the door was closed and was not open on Sunday. I again rang (in error) Australian Clinic, asking is this the Westcoast Clinic Serena Building and when are you opening? In short she couldn’t understand English and then I realised my mistake, I drove to 3 Ng Du and spoke to a dentist in Vietlish and seems the dentist I know was overseas. I showed his the useless crown and the crappy job as that other dentist guaranteed it would last longer than my other teeth haha. He did offer to re place it and said your joking obviously the glue is not very effective. So from me Australian Dental Clinic doesn’t get my tick. Not having a receptionist who at least speaks conversation English is beyond me.

    Westcoast International, very bad service, expeditious and frankly rather rude.

    Had to have emergency root canal whilst in Hanoi for 2 days. Peace dental clinic were amazing. So helpful – Alice and Fredrick were great. Very cheap compared to Australia – would highly recommend, they even called my hotel the next day to check how I was feeling and if I had any pain. 10/10 for service!! Saved my holiday!

    Thanks Ludi and Amy for your feedback. Sorry to hear you had problems Ludi – generally Westcoast gets good reviews.

    This post is a little bit outdated:
    Peace Dental Clinic and Westcoast International Dental Clinic are still providing solid dental work and services.
    One Dental Clinic is modern equipped, but their price is no where reasonable, indeed, pretty much the same with in Australia.
    Australian Dental Clinic is no longer a place to go since last year. none of the dentist or staff there could speak English and you will not see the crowd like it used to have. Just to add in, none of the dentist here is trained in Australia, I dont know why they named it Australian clinic.
    Another one really worth to mention is Serenity International Dental Clinic. I’ve been their customer since last Nov and they never fail to deliver good experience to me.

    For the most up to update list of “recommended” dental clinic, i’d recommend everyone to check out newhanoian website. it provided pretty fair reviews about them.
