2. Choose

Choose the best dentist to handle your oral care. Look at their qualifications. Here’s something you should know: Thailand dentists have the same qualifications as their counterparts in US, Canada, Europe, and Australia. In fact, they finished courses not only in Thailand but also from international institutions. Dentists in Thailand specialized in various fields including Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Restorative Treatment, Periodontics (Gums), and Orthodontics. Consult a specialist for your dental treatment. For example if you need a solution for your gum problem, a Periodontist can provide an effective treatment. Consult an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon if you need a procedure concerning the bones and soft tissues of the face, mouth, and neck. For smile makeovers, sit down for a consultation with a dentists specializing in Restorative Treatment or Cosmetic Dentistry.


3. Know

Know the services offered by the clinics. Dental treatments that are offered in your home country are also available in Thailand. They perform an array of services ranging from simple preventive care like teeth cleaning to specialized treatment such as dental implants and cosmetic dental procedures (crowns, veneers, and dentures).

It’s important to know the approximate length of treatment so that you can include this in your itinerary. Choose a hotel or beach resort near the clinic so you can easily attend to your dental appointment.

4. Check

Check the facilities. Clinics in Thailand invests in state-of-the-art technology such as digital x-rays, 3D CT scan, lasers, and sterilization equipment to deliver world-class service. If you need to restore your teeth, you’d be glad that some clinics have on-site laboratories that produce same-day crowns or veneers. With this kind of technology, you’ll get fast and convenient treatment allowing you to visit the scenic attractions in Thailand.
