Getting dental care in Thailand has become a popular alternative to care at home due as high-quality clinics are available and the care costs less than half of what you would spend at home. In Phuket, dentists are as reliable as dentists in Australia and New Zealand, mainly because they are as qualified and experienced. Despite this, people are afraid to travel for care due to a number of falsehoods, so let us take a closer look at some of these myths:
“Dentists in Phuket Use Substandard Materials”
Dentists who offer treatments such as All-on-4’s use the same quality materials as dentists at home. The cost of these materials is similar, but many of the treatments are expensive due to the time and skill required by the dentist. This cost is much lower in Thailand due to the lower cost of living there, which means that salaries are reduced.
“The Best Dentists Charge More”
In Phuket, dentists charge less across the board, with every clinic charges less than what you would spend locally for treatments such as dental fillings. Some believe that experienced dentists charge more but because dentists in Phuket face high levels of competition, they keep their prices low. Also, they have a reputation to uphold so maintain the quality as word-of-mouth marketing is still the most effective.
Here is a comparison of the price on some treatments to give you a better understanding:
- Australia: AUD 2,378
- New Zealand: NZD 2,443
- Phuket: AUD 955 / NZD 1,031
- Australia: AUD 5,098
- New Zealand: NZD 5,238
- Phuket: AUD 2,630 / NZD 2,871
“The Clinics Lack Modern Dental Technology”
Dental clinics in Phuket are modern and well-equipped facilities, and many are located in popular tourist areas so they are easy to find. Clinics in Thailand maintain strict hygiene regimens, and the dentists are trained to use the latest equipment available.
The following clinics in Phuket are popular due to the low costs of treatment and high quality of care:
“The Dentists Are Not Qualified”
Many believe that dentists in Asia are not as qualified as those in the west, but this is not the case. Dentists there undertake the same training routines, and many even studied overseas. They have years of experience operating clinics in Thailand and they operate the clinics in accordance with international standards.
In Phuket, dentists are reliable, affordable, and easily accessible. Contact the customer support team for more information or book an appointment online at no extra charge.
