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.

He trained in Bangkok, he counts as a foreigner...
I go to a clinic on St 63 and they have done root canals for $50 and a crown for $100. Compared to the quote I had from my Adelaide dentist, $1100 for a root canal, it is fantastic value for money. It would be interesting to know how many tourists come for 'dental holidays', as you could easily off-set the air fares with the savings.
I paid $38 for a root canal treatment, had many fillings and onlays done, and I know a couple of people who had crowns and implants done by Dr. Tho over the past couple of years and who were very happy with his work.

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.
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.
Good to see this - some updated info on Roomchang:
My wife is now personal assistant to the boss of Roomchang Dental Clinic (she is manager of human resources, customer service, PR, sales & marketing, supervisor of admin and front office staff and basically everything short of tugging teeth. The boss saw her as the perfect person to kick north of 100 Khmer asses - a very rare talent to pull off but she does it brilliantly). It is opening a new ten-storey building on 12th December (just off Norodom, next to Sisowath High School) and will be the biggest dental clinic in Cambodia. It will be open 24 hours and will be rebranded as Roomchang Dental Hospital.
In addition to the new prettiest staff i just mentioned , she is now looking to recruit 2 or 3 more receptionists - pretty and pleasant are requirements, but my missus takes no prisoners (she's sacked a few slackers) - they need to be prepared to work hard too. If you think you know someone who fits the bill, PM me.
Careful of the F'n Thai Dentists, had some not good experiences with those money grubbing thieves.
Hada small cavity and the 'dentist' was trying to drill through into the root, I had to stop the prick. On another tooth he 'cleaned' the cavity and filled it - you can still see the cavity is black and he just put filling in, meaning it'll probably rot through to the root behind the cavity if I don't get his 'fix' fixed soon.
By an orthodontist I had a crown crack in two already and another crown from the same fellow was not fit properly so food particles can go up the back edge of the crown.
Here's some interesting information on root canals to consider while you are at it too:
Mr chou nee is opposite the container port in PP. My friend from perth just had twenty crowns and two bridges done by wolfgang in toul kork. He is a german army dentist who came here with UNTAC and stayed.He trained many of the current generation of khmer dentists. She paid $8,800,in australia it would have cost up to $35,000. He does a lot of work for australians from the regions. Other than wolfie i would recommend roomchang. Forget the thieving thai.
