Dental implants in Thailand review

“A really positive and cost-effective experience”

This blogger, who refers to himself as ‘The Vagabond', has written an extremely detailed account of his experience getting dental implants in Bangkok, as well as some other dental work. Across six blog posts he discusses:

There is a lot to do with your free time in Bangkok
  • The difference in prices between the US and Thailand
  • His thought process in deciding whether dental tourism was right for him
  • How he chose a clinic
  • Daily journals of his three separate visits
  • Whether it was worth it in the end

In short, he says, the experience was “better than I could have imagined”. The staff were extremely attentive and he felt they were acting in his best interests with his treatment plan.

He also saved a considerable amount of money. His full treatment plan, including two dental implants, came to over $21,000 (£16,000) in the US. By getting the work done in Thailand he saved nearly $10,000 (£7,600) – that's including flights, accommodation, and entertainment for three trips there.

His review is well worth a read if you're seriously considering getting dental implants in Bangkok or another part of Thailand – you'll find a wealth of useful information and things to consider for your own trip. The clinic he visited has various locations in Bangkok and Phuket.

“I'm very impressed with the honesty of the staff there”

This vlogger had everyone's dream dental experience – going in for a cleaning and being told he didn't need one! He was impressed that the staff were so honest as they could easily have gone ahead with the work anyway and charged the $25 (£20) fee. As it turns out, he didn't even have to pay a consultation fee.

Chiang Mai dentist review

“I have to admit I was a little scared” – Dave Brett

Although Dave only needed a basic clean, he was still wary of visiting a dentist in Thailand on his travels. But, as he writes, “I can’t keep on going back to the UK every year just because I like the place that cleans my teeth right?”.

He decided to take the plunge and visit a dentist in Chiang Mai. In his blog he describes the experience:

dental implants Bangkok
Expect clean and modern facilities
  • He was surprised that he could be seen straight away as a walk-in patient (compared to a 3-week waiting list in London)
  • The consultation was completely free
  • The facilities looked better than his dentist back in the UK
  • He paid about £12 to have his teeth cleaned
  • The friendliness of the staff really put him at ease, and they spoke great English

You might need much more than just a clean and polish, but reading about experiences like Dave's can help you feel more at ease about getting dental work abroad.

Getting a root canal in Bangkok

Perlin was quoted A$3,500 (£2,700) for root canal work in Australia so decided to visit a dentist in Thailand instead. Even though he chose “the most expensive dentist in Bangkok” because he wanted to be assured of the quality, his treatment cost just A$1,250 (£700). Adding in the cost of accommodation, flights, and all other expenses for a three-week trip, he paid A$2,640 (£1,500) – a big saving on the amount he was quoted for the dental work alone in Australia.

This illustrates why so many people are keen to get dental work overseas and enjoy a vacation at the same time. View Perlin's full review and cost breakdown here:

Summary of Thailand dentist reviews

Throughout all these reviews we can see the common themes of saving money and receiving great care – the main reasons why people make the trip to Thailand for dental work. However, not all dentists operate to the same standards so it's important to do as much research as possible before you make a decision.

It's also important to learn about the procedure(s) you need so you understand what is involved and how long the work will take. If you have any questions, ask your dentist first so you feel as comfortable as possible with your choice.
