First and foremost, the short answer is a resounding ‘YES’! Thailand and in particular, Bangkok, has become a hotbed of dental tourism as residents of the United States, United Kingdom and other Western countries realize that they can potentially thousands of dollars on their dental treatment. Best of all, they receive at least the same high level of care.
Be Safe & Research
A quick Google search will doubtless reveal some horror stories but in virtually all of these cases, the ‘victim’ made the mistake of choosing a hole in the wall non-accredited clinic. Such a choice really makes no sense when you can pick a world class Bangkok dental clinic for a low price.
It is pretty easy to differentiate between a legitimate dental clinic in Bangkok like PMDC Dental and a low grade operator. First of all, high quality clinics tend to have professional websites with high quality content; indeed, these clinics routinely pay writers from Western nations to take charge of their content to add that veneer of respectability (pun intended).
Reputable clinics are also likely to have a substantial amount of online reviews which are easily researched. Finally, even a cursory glance around a Bangkok dental clinic can tell you if it is safe or not. Top level clinics will be extremely clean with courteous staff and will have the ‘appearance’ of professionalism. If you end up in a place with poor lighting, dirty floors and staff with little understanding of English; cancel your appointment and leave!
You will be surprised not only at the high standard of dental clinics in Thailand and the low prices, but also the variety of treatments available. This includes teeth whitening, root canals, surgical wisdom tooth removal, Invisalign, metal braces, porcelain veneers and much more.
