Best Dentist in Bangkok ?

Recommended Posts

Hello Dear Friends

So, I have heard that Asavanant in Thong Lor is good.

They don't however advertize their prices which is odd. I emailed them for prices and they only came back with cleaning prices.

1,400 for professional cleaning

12,000 for whitening at the clinic

All seems a bit pricey to me, especially when compared with one of the best places in Chiang Mai.

What are your thoughts?

Are there better/ equally good but cheaper places in BKK? Is BKK always going to be significantly more than CM?

Thanking you kindly....

I use Asavanant. They're very good. A check up, polish, scrape & clean costs around 2,000 baht. It's professionally done, they're very efficent and everyone speaks good English. Maybe they're not the cheapest, but I want my teeth well looked after.

OK thanks - I need at least 2 fillings and a cap put over a tooth which broke (it was a root canal job) so I may be looking at a steep bill!

My dentist, an endodontist (the creme de la creme of dentistry) charges 500 baht for a full ultrasonic cleaning. Done in about 20~30 minutes and of course, a general kind of exam at the same time.

Not the cheapest in town, but having been butchered by several other Thai dentists in Bkk including some who were shockingly incompetent, I recommend The Dental Hospital on Sukhmumvit Soi 49, near Samitivej. Never had a problem there. They have specialists for everything.

Best and most professional with reasonable price in my opinion is Bangkok international dental center (BIDC) next to the emerald hotel on ratchada (din daeng/huai kwang area).

Google them. Very modern and clean facility, English speaking staff.

You can find cheaper clinics but I think this place is worth it.

Thanks - I did as you said and Googled them but it seems to be all horror stories over on Trip Advisor:

Hmm well I feel horrible for recommending them if that is the case for serious procedures.

I've only done cleanings and a few cavities filled and they were very good all three times but I guess Thai places can be touch and go. I guess I only recommend their simple procedures then.

If you have more serious procedures perhaps better to use a hospital like Bangkok hospital dental or something then :(

Well, I just went to Asavanant in Thong Lor.[/size]

I will NOT be using their services.[/size]

Plain and simple - they refused to show me their prices. They are not listed on the website. They would not send them to me in an email. They have nothing printed out at the surgery.[/size]

What they told me to do, was stand by the lifts (elevators) and watch a small video screen which has an excruciatingly long video showing all of the dentists they have working there, a tour of the facilities etc, all in Thai. And when that is all over, presumably it begins again in English. She told me in the video they have the prices.[/size]

Sorry but I stood there like a lemon for 5 minutes watching this ridiculous video and asked once again for a printed list or even just to tell me the prices. "Watch video" the arrogant receptionist lady told me.[/size]

Stuff that - I told them I'd go to another dentist. They didn't care at all.[/size]

There is a trend I have noticed in Thailand - once a company or business gets a good reputation, the Thais very quickly become complacent, lazy and arrogant. They no longer put in the effort that made the business thrive in the first place. They are all too quick to rest on their laurels.[/size]

Well, here's a bad report plus I'll be updating Trip Advisor as it has been so helpful to me.[/size]

Time to visit the Dental Hospital Bangkok where I have read so many good reports about. Let's hope they do better![/size]

That's a shame. I'm sure I saw a price list, although it was over 5 years ago that I first starting using them.

All I can say is that I believe their prices to be competitive with other "top" dentist practices, but certainly not the cheapest. For me though, the quality of the service and dentistry is the key factor and in this I have no complaints about them whatsoever, or in the efficiency of their appointment system and communication.

Well, thanks for the recommendation - I just didn't like their attitude, it means a lot to me. I hope the Dental Hospital is better but thanks anyway...

I have always used Bangkok Smile near Ploenchit BTS. They seem to be targeting their business towards expats and tourists. I have been very happy, but honestly, I have never used them for serious dentistry. Cheap and reasonable services for cleaning and fillings.
