“I found the dentists to be professional, thorough and compassionate”

Jamie decided to travel to Manila for the extensive dental work he needed, saving thousands of dollars on the quote he'd received in Australia. He considered Thailand and Hungary, but decided on the Philippines because it wasn't far to travel should he need to return for some reason. The fact that English is widely spoken there was also a plus.

An infected tooth can cause delays with treatment

Jamie's treatment involved extensive fillings and root canal work followed by a crown and a bridge. The total cost was A$3,000 (US$2,200) and a third of that was for the bridge.

The main downside of his trip? He stayed for a month and was hoping to explore other parts of the country but his plans were derailed by an infected tooth (resulting from past work in Australia). Because of the need to monitor the infection and the delays it caused, he was only able to get away from the city for a few day trips.

Jamie's story highlights the importance of building some contingency time into your trip, just in case treatment doesn't go according to plan.

Elaine's Implants Review in the Phillippines

Elaine takes us through her experience getting implants in the Phillippines to reassure patients that the procedure is safe and painless, and that dental clinics in the Phillippines also have the latest technology and equipment. Watch her full Phillippines dental implant review below.

Hey everyone, Elaine here! I vlogged my personal experience on getting an implant to know how it is like and to prove to you guys that fear, or pain, is really all in the mind. I’ve been delaying this procedure for years, but now I summoned up all that courage so as not to cause any further damage to my smile. I tried my best to take videos of the whole process and I hope this can help you grasp how it feels or what to expect during the entire procedure. What I can tell you now is there is nothing to be afraid of – our dentists and assistants will take care of you very well (just like how Dr. Mark and Ate Apple took care of me) – you just have to sit or lie down for a few hours (mine was 2 hours) open your mouth which might be tiring for you – but comfort wise, pain wise – everything went smooth. Pressure at times is normal which is expected but the entire time – chill and cool 🙂 It’s now 2 weeks already , and everything’s back to normal. Now I need to wait for 6 months for the crown to be installed. Have other inquiries? You can message or call us directly 09178724929. Address – Rooms 310 to 311 Medical Towers Makati V.A.

“It feels more like going to a spa, to be honest”

One blogger describes how she saw 10 different dentists when she was younger after a bike accident damaged her teeth. None of them restored her smile satisfactorily and she began to dread dental visits. However, a great experience at one particular clinic in the Philippines turned this around for her.

Many clinics are modern and clean

In this blog she writes about her first visit, which involved x-rays, discussing her treatment plan, and one initial filling.

She notes how impressed she was with the little touches that made the experience more bearable. For example, there was a TV above her chair with a choice of movies (including new releases) that she could watch to take her mind off the drilling. She also describes the treatment rooms as “pristine”.

As a disclaimer, the writer does add that she is working as a brand influencer for the clinic so received her work for free. However, her review is worth a read if only to see how modern and hygienic dental clinics in the Philippines can be.

“I'm very happy with the clinic”

Vlogger Simona needed to have two wisdom teeth extracted but decided to get them done one at a time because she wasn't sure how much pain and swelling she'd experience afterwards. In the end, she was glad she decided to do it this way.

Her description of her dental experience is covered in the video below from 2:40 to 7:15.

Because it ended up being a complicated extraction, she had swelling and pain for a couple of days afterwards. This is worth bearing in mind if you're planning a dental vacation – you may not feel like doing much for a day or two after your treatment.

Philippines dentist reviews: conclusion

Whatever your reason for visiting a dentist in the Philippines, it pays to do your research. Here is a summary of the advice given in the reviews above:

  • Book a hotel close to your clinic if you want to avoid dealing with taxi drivers or public transport immediately after your treatment
  • Be prepared for delays and have a plan ‘B'
  • Dentists located in malls may be more expensive because of higher business overheads
  • Be realistic about how much you'll want to do in the days after your treatment
