Dental advice

This is a free speech zone where you can discuss and debate everything Cambodia related whether you're a dyed in the wool leftist, a liberal or somewhere to right of Attila the Hun. This is also where you get to read the news the local media suppresses.

Dental advice

Postby BirdBrain » Sat Oct 22, 2011 3:10 pm

I have a friend who requires major dental work. I am unsure of whether to advise getting it done in Phnom Penh where it is cheaper or in Bangkok where the expertise may come in handy. I am not to sure of the ability of Cambodian dentists and whether they can handle such grotesque dental deformity.

I usually bring my family to Roomchang Dental Clinic (http://www.roomchangdental.com). They have Khmer and Western dentists there. My father happens to be a dentist and when we visit my parents back in Europe on Christmas he always checks our teeth. He never had anything to complain about their work. If your friend's teeth are in such a bad shape it will require a lot of appointments. That would make a lot of traveling to and from Bangkok necessary.

Western dentists? Do you know where from? That is certainly a glowing recommendation. I will look into it.

No idea. When I have been there they alway asked me whether I wanted a Cambodian or a Western dentist. I don't care what skin colour my dentist has as long as he gets the job done so I always ended up with a Cambodian one. To be precise, on their website they have a group photo of the staff that shows >one< white face. But for sure he's not the only Western dentist in town.

$5k of dental in Aus is just a consultation isn't it?

I concur have been using RoomChang for nearly 9 years and they have outstanding service ( 5 crowns and 12 fillings over the years most were done in the first few visits as my Hampstead's were a mess from years of neglect.
As an added bonus they do have the prettiest staff in town. :D

What they were really asking u was, "Do u want a dentist that EARNED his degree or a dentist that PAID for it...?" They weren't asking u what skin color u prefer, lol...

That's more of the usual pessimistic, uninformed crap we hear too much around here. There are plenty of good Cambodian dentists, many of whom studied abroad.

I know, I try to be more optimistic like u Hanky, but it's just so hard...

"Plenty" is probably pushing it though.. :-P

I guess what they should ask is "Do u want a dentist that studied here or one that studied in a foreign land?".... Thus taking the race aspect that gets everyone so antsy out of it..

Cambodian dentists are great.
Its the opposite here to australia.
In australia doctors are honest and dentists are thieves.
