According to Thai consulting firm C9 Hotelworks, Thailand’s famed resort island of Phuket attracted 6.4 million tourists in 2015, primarily Westerners.

We’ve put together our guide to help Dental Departures clients connect with providers of top root canals in Phuket.


Along with everything else in Phuket, the cost of root canal procedures is relatively inexpensive compared to European, Australian, or North American clinics. The savings can run into the hundreds or even the thousands of dollars, as evidenced by our chart below.
