    My most recent trip for which I have the receipt was just the annual checkup, scale and clean, and it was B1000, about A$30, and that's a minimum of $140 at home.

    An extraction of a molar was B1000 also, and the dentist took over an hour to get all the bits of bone, etc., out. At home an hour for a dentist is anywhere between $450 and $600!!!

    The place I've used so far is Bangkok Smile, Soi 21 (Asoke) Sukhumvit Road, and they have another branch somewhere around Chitlom/Ploenchit on the Skytrain route, almost on the corner of Wireless Road and whatever Sukhumvit changes its name to in that area.

    Sounds like Siriraj Hospital is a better deal dirtydog, so I'll keep that in mind.
    I have been going to the Asoke Smile Clinic for 3-4 years now - superb service, painless and not too pricey

    DD, I like everything you've had to say about your dental experience at Siriraj hospital and have been trying to make an appointment with no luck for an upcoming trip to Thailand in October. My e-mails go unanswered. Would I have better luck by phone? I certainly ( unfortunately) don't speak Thai so phoning may not go well for me. Can you suggest a way of contacting them to make the appt.? E-addresses, English speaking phone #s, anything at all would be helpful. Thank you.

    Thanks, Gus. I've already tried their e- address but I'm trying again. Next step is a phone call, I guess. DD, how are the teeth holding up since your visit to Siriraj?

    Dirtydog, thanks for your post re: dental work in BKK. It was complete, informative and extremely helpful as a first time visitor to Thailand (me) simply has no idea of how to proceed and who to trust. So... Thank you. So far my e-inquiries have not been answered. Next step, I guess, is to call. Do you have a specific contact # that you used and a person to speak with? Can this be done in English? I live in the Caribbean so my resources are not what I'd have in the US or UK. Any help you could provide would be much appreciated. Finally, how are the old teeth holding up since your dental work? Are you happy with what they did? Thanks......JR.

    Thanks, same boat.

    ps. the reason they are loath to do general is that for every general there is a real and very measurable chance that you won't wake up.

    BKK dental work

    Just returning from Thailand and have a very positive report about dental work ai BIDC near the Thai Cultural Center. Made the appointments from home and it went off without a hitch. All appoints. confirmed by them by e- mail. My wife and I had 4 crowns and 4 fillings between us. All, I felt, were professionally done with communication in passable, good English. The dentists were all good communicators who kept you informed of what you needed and at try we're doing as you went. Total cost was 2400 USD, probably one half to one third of what it would ave cost me at home. One crown was a little high and they took me in without appt. the next day and shaved it down ad polished it. A very good dental experience. If you want more exact questions answered e-me and I'll be happy to help.

    The best Bangkok dentist is Sunil Phol. I had gone for for tooth color filling. Experience was amazing. Doctors were professional and helpful. Dr. Sunil Dental Clinic offers all dental services with affordable price. I would definitely recommend Dr. Sunil to others.

    How can a dentist be better than another one ? They all are exactly the same and only clients are psycho.

    The only difference between dentists is that some are just cheaters and others are super cheaters (about their rates).

    ^Have to disagree with that. It's like saying all spray painters, mechanics, jewelers, builders, eye surgeons and (insert any profession where someones personal skills and ability to use the tools of their trade are involved) can't possibly be better than one another.

    This is also based on some very recent and ongoing personal experience with Dentists. If you Googled up the top 5 Dentists in Pattaya I've now been to 3 of them. Would not even dream of ever returning to 2 of them again, ever!. So no, they're most definitely not all the same. Far from it.

    I have tried to contact the Siriraj Hospital. Does anyone have the direct number to the dental clinic. Does the dental clinic make appointments or is it first come first served? My wife is Thai and we tried to make an appointment but we were told that it was not possible. We will arrive in Bangkok June 20th. I would like to get work done as quickly as possible and as inexpensive as possible.

    I have had work done at Bang Mot (not plastic surgery...), and they were very good and reasonably priced.

    I will be getting some more dental work done soon, so I'd be pleased to hear from any folks who have had good experiences in Bangkok or NakhonNayok.

    We are looking for a good and reasonable dentist. I would prefer Bangkok because the crowns are made locally. I can go to Korat but the crowns will be made in Bangkok. Any help or opinions would be appreciated.

    The dental department at the Mayo hospital is second to none and not too expensive. I have had 7 crowns done there and all the mercury fillings removed and replaced with something non toxic.

    Mor Hemawan ( a women ) is excellent if you can get her. Bit of a long queue for her but worth the wait. Very professional , good English and not too painful.

    On Pahonyothin Road near Kasetsart university.

    For me, the best dentists in Bangkok are the ones in Thantakit. I've been to quite a few dental places around BKK and they would continuously upsell. I didn't feel that way whenever I go to Thantakit. Had my dental fillings, a root canal treatment and general dental care done there. Their fluency in English is a plus as well.

    I'm a big fan of the Yanhee Dental Center, at Yanhee Hospital. Cheap prices, and great service/dentists. [Been three times so far over the past couple of years]. They are open 24 hours a day, and getting an appointment has always been easy. [Admittedly the wife does this for me].

    At other dental clinics I have been to, it seemed like whenever I went on for a checkup I'd end up with a filling. Whether I had any problems/pain, or not.

    Check out this video I put together on my last visit which goes through what to expect and how to get there etc. [I haven't received any compensation for this video, it's my honest opinion].
