Why choose Thailand for dental treatment?

Thailand now attracts tourists from all over the world to take advantage of competitively priced private medical treatments. The medical standards are high in Thailand and clinics and bilingual staff are more often trained in the US, Australia or Europe. The lower prices combined with the favourable exchange rate means that dental treatment is extremely competitive, allowing visitors to enjoy a wonderful holiday in a breathtakingly beautiful country – and give their teeth some first class attention.

Thailand is an incredibly scenic country with plenty of options for the visitor, pre or post dentistry treatment ranging from jungle trekking in Chiang Mai, languishing on stunning beaches in the south, to learning about the exotic culture by visiting the country’s fascinating temples and buildings.

The Thai medical profession is well advanced, and medical tourism is expected to continue growing. Many private clinics offer complete cosmetic dental makeover packages and work with state of the art technology. As far as price comparisons go, Silom Dental Clinic in Bangkok offer laser tooth whitening for between 7,000 (€166) and 14,000 THB (€332). The treatment takes around an hour and a half to complete. A single tooth implant and one crown will cost around THB 80,000 (€1900), depending on materials used.

The official language is Thai but English is widely spoken in cities and tourist areas. Thailand’s tropical climate is hot and humid, but there are regional and seasonal temperature variations. Bangkok is hot between March and mid-June – between 27 and 35 degrees Celsius, rainy between June and October – averaging 24 to 32 degrees Celsius and cool between November and February – 18 to 32 degrees Celsius. Chiang Mai in the north has a much cooler temperature. Temperatures in the south, for example, in Phuket are lovely and warm - 34 degrees Celsius in the hot season with the sea water never going below 20 degrees.

Thai currency is the Baht with THB42 to the Euro.
