Even though thousands of people undergo successful dental operations and treatment in Phuket every year some believe dentists there are unreliable. Misconceptions such as this may lead you to believe that dental clinics in Phuket offer substandard treatment but rest assured that they are highly qualified and operate in modern facilities. This review will disproof some of the more common misconceptions regarding dentists providing dental crowns in Phuket:
Their Facilities are Poorly Equipped
The facilities in Phuket offer a range of treatments in state-of-the-art facilities. Also, they have strict hygiene regimens and their staff undergo extensive training before being allowed to provide individual care to each patient. In short, facilities in Phuket, and especially those below, offer international standard care at a reasonable cost. Here are some popular clinics who have been reviewed positively by past patients for All-on-Four dental implants:
The Materials Used are Substandard
In Phuket, dentists use the same quality materials as clinics in the west. The materials may be slightly less expensive if they are bought through the government purchasing program or because the delivery costs are much lower, but they are the same quality as those used in the west.
The main reasons for the reduced prices are the lower cost of living and higher levels of competition. Living in Thailand costs less than in the west, so salaries, rent, utilities, and other costs are much lower. These savings are passed on to the patient.
Additionally, with a high number of clinics competing for patients who are not tied geographically, price is used as a promotional tool. Clinics offer low prices as they need patients, whereas in the west getting an appointment in itself is a chore.
The Savings are Not Worth Travelling For
Although there are savings to be made, for simpler treatments such as dental crowns, travelling to Phuket alone is not cost-effective. However, if you can combine the operation with your annual holiday or other dental surgery you can save money, or just put it towards a better or longer vacation.
As a general rule, savings of 60% to 70% can be found on dental treatment in Phuket, as shown in the price comparisons below:
- Australia: AUD 1,505
- New Zealand: NZD 1,545
