The Thai capital is earning itself a reputation as home to some of the best dentists in the world, and it is not hard to see why. For top dental implants dentists Bangkok is an attractive city to open a dental clinic, because the number of overseas patients traveling here for treatment just keeps growing. With dental tourism booming and flights connecting to international air hubs all over the world, talented dentists realise that it makes good business sense to set up shop here.

What You Could Save by Visiting a Bangkok Dentist

Lower operating costs makes running a dental clinic in Bangkok cheaper compared to Australia or New Zealand, with savings passed on to patients. When you see the dental implants price in Bangkok alongside the cost advertised by dental clinics in Sydney, Melbourne, Auckland, or Wellington, it is astonishing to see how much you could save.

  • Avg. cost of a single dental crown in Australia: $1,200 AUD

  • At a dentist in Bangkok: $280 AUD


  • Avg. cost, root canal, post, and crown in Australia: $2,375 AUD

  • At a dentist in Bangkok: $900 AUD


  • Avg. cost of dental implant and crown in Australia: $5,000 AUD

  • At a dentist in Bangkok: $2,000 AUD


By visiting a dentist in Thailand instead of an Australian dentist, you are likely to save up to 70% on dental implants. For full mouth implants, the difference in price could be as much as 60%. One of the biggest savings you can make on dental treatment is when you need a root canal filling, which is up to 80% cheaper in Bangkok when compared to New Zealand.

Dental licenses are checked, premises are inspected, quality of treatment is surveyed, and online reputation is reviewed. Only the best dentists in Bangkok receive the Dental Departures Global Patients’ Choice Award, and here are five that make the cut.

Bangkok International Dental Center regularly receives great reviews from patients, and with an average rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars the dentists here are our most recommended. The first dental clinic to be presented with the Prime Minister's Export Award for Best Service Provider, BIDC is also one of the few JCI-accredited dental clinics in Asia.

In bustling Siam Square, Bangkok’s shopping hub, is the superb Smile Signature dental clinic. While Smile Signature has branches all over the city this one stands out as being the most convenient to visit for overseas patients, thanks to its central location and nearby public transport links.
