Near Dolphin roundabout. I found it using Thai Visa's search function "tapasit".

I would go to PBH

I have never seen Khun Warin using his X-Ray machine. 

I had an Xray from him a couple of years ago.

Thanks however for the cautionary tale.

Crowns and implants seem to be his speciality. Once needed root canal surgery and he referred me to BPH as he hadn't had the training. Seem to remember him telling me, some time ago, that his X-Ray machine was broken.

There seem to be a small group of people here who constantly recommend that guy every chance they get which could be a bit suspicous.  I've never been.  From the outside it seems to be a pretty low budget operation.  His sign is dull and faded.  Could use a replacement sign.  Also, it never looks very busy in there when I have walked by which is almost every day on my way to Big C Extra.  This is usually during low season.  Maybe he is busier during high season.

 

Anyways, I wouldn't trust the reviews here until you see for yourself first hand.  I'll go in for a cleaning and see how it goes.  I've been meaning to try him out for awhile.

I've been to Warin a couple of times for cleaning though I have never actually seen him. I would agree that his place is probably the best of a bad bunch in Pattaya, but I still prefer to drive to Sri Racha where I think I get better treatment.

 

But as always in Thailand it depends on the person you see, and their mood on the day, rather than the place you go to. Unreliable and inconsistent are the key words here.

Having used Dr Warrin for 10 years (both my wife and I), for crowns, cleaning, fillings etc, I will disagree with you. Of course, I've used him for many things while you've only had a couple of cleanings, so what would you know.

 

He's not the best of a bad bunch, he's the best dentist I have ever been to including all the dentists in my home country. I could list many reasons why he's exceptional, but I won't bother with that here as it would be a very long post.

You appear to be agreeing with me rather than disagreeing. As I mentioned, much depends on the person here rather than on the place.

 

And yes, I do prefer the dentist who has done all my implants and other work for several years. Just like you do.

My friends from NZ are having their initial crown implants as of yesterday so I will ask them their impressions of Dr Warin later in the week.

My affection is not because of familiarity, it's for his skills as a dentist. It was your "best of a bad bunch" comment I disagreed with.

 

But yes, it is good to see someone who knows you and has an accurate record of your teeth and what has been done over the years. For example, I just had a big filling from years back fall out. I thought it was the same one Dr Warin filled 3 years ago, but the record showed it was a different tooth, one he had never worked on. I was actually surprised that he took the conservative approach by testing out a filling before suggesting an 8000 baht crown. It's still going strong after more than 3 years. That's twice he's filled teeth that I'm pretty sure most other dentists in Pattaya would put a crown on. My last crown he did at the old price, saving me 1000 baht. You just don't expect that in Thailand when you're a foreigner.

 

He did a one-year implant course at UCLA back in 2006. The certificate is on the wall behind the reception desk. His English skills and willingness to explain all the details of his work are a big plus too.

What is wrong with being the best in town?

Give him a miss lapd...myself and tropo are talking through our backsides,what,as long standing patients do we know about dentists here in Pattaya....if his sign does not suit your taste go for a much more glitzy and upscale place....you know it makes sense,must be a top of the range dentist operating in such an establishment :whistling:

Yes, lapd should definitely give him a miss. I hope he does as Dr Warin is busy enough as it is... his appointment book is often completely full for weeks, even in the offseason. He should go to very flashy establishment for the best possible dental care and highest possible bills.

Nothing is wrong with being the best in town, but when you qualify it by saying "best of a bad bunch", the meaning is significantly altered. You even took it a step further by saying you go to a dentist in a different town suggesting even the best in this town is not good enough for you.
