Dentist

Heard that its fairly cheap to get fillings in SE Asia?

I planned on getting a few small fillings done before I go in June, but would you suggest I leave them and get them done in Asia? Will be in Bali/indonesia for a few weeks at the start of the journey so any info would be good.

thanks.

Bangkok and maybe Ho Chi Minh (from something I read recently). I'm sure there are good dentists in Bali but not so sure I would put my holiday at risk to find out. (Yes, I know it's only a filling, but......)

In Chiang Mai there are many excellent dentists and standard price is 500 baht per filling most places. Fifteen bucks for quality work =)

Do NOT get work done in Bali. You will pay Australian prices for a good dentist. If you can, get a flight to Thailand for some great dentistry. Bangkok or Chiang Mai.
