It takes six years to complete the Doctor of Dental Surgery degree and many of the Thai cosmetic dentists achieve undergraduate, post-graduate and doctorial degrees in their specialist fields from prominent local and international universities where they also lecture and train dental students. Medical standards are high in Thailand and many staff train in the US, Australia or Europe, so are able to offer a bilingual service. Look out for hospitals and clinics which have achieved ISO 9001:2000 Certification, United Kingdom Accreditation service UKAS, the Swiss Accreditation service, SAS, and belong to management groups to ensure the very highest standard of medical service and strict sterilisation processes.
Regarding accreditation cosmetic dentists should be registered with the Thai Dental Council, the Thai Dental Association and the National Dental Industry Association. Dentists who qualify in another country must pass the national examination before they can be registered in Thailand. Additional membership will be with the relevant specialist group, for example the Thai Prosthodontics Association, the Thai Operative Dental Society, the Thai Prosthodontics Association or the Thai Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. Depending on where their training was completed, dentists may have international memberships such as American Operative Dentistry Society.
