Dentists in Phuket perform all standard dental procedures: implants, crowns, veneers, root canals, extractions, dentures, teeth whitening, braces, fillings & bridges. Phuket dental clinics have the same level of dental care as Bangkok but the location affords people to recovery from their dental treatment on Phuket’s many exotic beaches.

Patong beach and Karon beach are popular destinations for visitors to find a dentist in Phuket.  Phuket dental tourists enjoy both inexpensive dental care and the opportunity to enjoy the island’s great dining, hotels and beautiful beaches.

Phuket dentists have managed to deliver superb dental care in an exotic setting.

Phuket Transportation

In Phuket the major mode of transportation is the motorcycle.  Motorcycles are inexpensive to rent and available pretty much everywhere.

Tuk Tuk
Phuket’s Tuk Tuk’s are indeed a fun experience but only for the well travelled.  It is very easy to pay way too much money to travel via tuk tuk:  hard negotiation and local knowlege of regular rates are required.

You can hail a bus during the day in Phuket and they will take you to all corners of the island.  Buses are generally safer and less expensive than taxis or tuk tuks.

Car Rental
Most hotels offer you the option to rent a car to travel around the island.  Renting a car will be one of your expensive transportation options and follows the standard car rental process: rent by day, requires an international drivers license/country driver’s license and you have the option to purchase liability insurance.

Phuket Communication

Public phones are slowly growing harder to find in Phuket as people adopt cell phones.  The preferred methods to communicate with home are:  
  • buy a prepaid SIM card an insert into your cell phone  for cheap domestic and international calls 
  • use the internet at your hotel/dental office to call home via Skype or Google Chat
  • Internet access
    Phuket has plentiful options to access the internet through your hotel, dental offices or cyber cafes.  You will not need to go far to find free wifi access or paid internet service.  Generally, all the dental offices you visit in Phuket will offer free internet terminals or Wifi.
