Health and safety forum
6th August, 2009
Hi There i have been researching having my teeth fixed & whitened it BKK (Sounds precious but im not). Can anyone tell me if I am being silly relying on BKK Dentist to fix my teeth at a 1/3rd of the Aussie costs? Are they safe health wise. any help would be appreciated. thx

The price is good (by Oz standards), many report good outcomes. The 6:30 gossip shows on 7 & 9 oft have dentists telling the audience how bad the outcomes are in SE Asia.
I'm not a dentist, I'm not a defender of Australian dentistry. Nor an advocate of SE Asian skills.
The question really should be if anything went wrong, how much do you value your personal health/dental outcomes. That is, what price is reasonable for good dentistry?.
Only you can answer that question.

Funny second dentistry question today. I've had a plate made in Bangkok no problems and many, many other friends have used Bangkok dentistry without problem.
I've been struggling to find the business card for the dentist I used but I know he was on the ground floor of the Diethelm Building on Wireless Rd in Bangkok -- Google Diethelm Travel Bangkok and you'll see where the building is -- he was called the Prosthodentist or something like that... I'll try and find the card. He was trained in the US. No complaints at all. I think there is a big dentistry hospital (rather than a private practise mentioned above) -- I can ask around for more details if you want -- let me know.
As an aside, I'd go as far as to say I'd prefer Thailand over Oz for just about any kind of medical care -- not only on a cost basis but also on a service basis. Really -- Hospitals in Bangkok -- eg Samitivej and Bamrungrad are top notch.
PS Thailand is a pretty good place to recuperate in too!
