What are the common questions expats in Bangkok asks on dental treatments?
All thai dentists takes the main dentist board exam, the Thailand Dental Council, to obtain a dental license after graduating from university with a doctor of dentistry (DDS.) degree.
All licensed dentists in Thailand are able treat patients on the full range of dental treatments. They can do simple teeth cleaning to more complicated treatments such as braces and oral surgery. There is no restriction or control on the treatment service or complexity they can perform. So within normal dental clinics, dentists are left to their own discretion and judgment to determine by themselves on their ability to treat or refer any complex case to other dentists.
At BIDH dental hospital, we use a dental specialists referral system whereby a consulting dentist screens our cases for a first treatment plan. The consulting dentists then refers to respective dental specialists in their field of expertises. So all braces are performed only by orthodontists; dental implants by implantologists; or dentures by prosthodontist to ensure successful outcome and results. We limit the priviledges of dentists to their speciality areas. And we ensures that our expats in bangkok are treated by qualified and well experienced specialists.
The Ministry of Health provides for a minimal check list in granting dental clinic a license. Dental clinics therefore have to meet basic requirements. The extent with which each dental clinic places added focuses on sterilization, clealiness and safety may therefore vary within Thailand.
At BIDH, because we are a certified and official hospital, our sterilization, management systems and operation treatments standards are based on hospital guidelines (relative to clinics). We place added chemical and biological indicator tools within our operation process that is not mandatory in base requirements over and above required benchmark as added safety mechanisms for our patients.
Dentists and dental clinics have to display their prices at their clinic. If you are worried about discriminatory pricings within Thailand especially within smaller clinics, our recommendation is to visit a medical provider website or give a call to the clinic to check on their price list. Some clinics may have wider ranges than others.
Having a large patient ase of expats in bangkok and international patient base, Our dental clinic at BIDH understands providing valued treatment fees without compromising on safety and obtaining natural-looking aesthetic treatment outcome treated by top thailand dental specialists. It may easy to find good quality treatment at high prices at hospitals; you”ll unlikely receive high quality treatments at “low” prices. At BIDH and our alliance clinics, we understand our thailand expatriates patients look for and expect good standard quality treatments at reasonable valued prices.
Expats in Bangkok Patient Story
“My name is Tracey and I live here in Bangkok, but I’m originally from England. I’m a teacher in an international school here. I have CDX disease which affects my teeth so my teeth aren’t great. At the moment I need some fillings and teeth removed. Even at home in the UK, I always have all my dentistry done under IV sedation. It took me a long while to find a dentist here. My friend has been attending here for her dentistry. She recommended them as really nice people. And they also do IV sedation which is how I usually have my dentistry done at home, so I came and they have been absolutely amazing!
They are much more thoughtful and takes the procedure very seriously. I’ve been to the hospital for a checkup, they said lots of things that I could and couldn’t do as compared to the UK. So they’ve really looked after me! They’ve given options as well as costs options. They’ve looked after me with a step by step procedure knowing how scared I am. They’re always in contact.”
