Thailand is famous for many things including unbelievable food, tropical beaches, stunning limestone towers called karsts, and beautiful women. To add to its many appeals is cheap dental work.
Medical tourism is a global phenomenon, fueled by countries where simple procedures have astronomical prices. Thailand might not be the best place to have brain surgery but if you’ve got a mouth full of cavities, need a cap, or some other dental procedure, they can do it for 90% less than most places.
X-Ray? About $5 USD. Cleaning and polishing? About $27 USD. Need a filling? That’s $20-30 USD! That’s less than an insurance co-payment.
Dentists here go to school for there bachelors for four years and then usually go to Bangkok to get their masters degree in Dentistry.
