Bangkok: Exotic, Cosmopolitan, Affordable Dentistry
Bangkok is the travel hub and visitor vortex for this corner of South-East Asia. It is the jumping off point for neighboring countries Laos, Cambodia, and Myanmar. The “City of Angels” or KrungTep in Thai, has many interesting sights and points of interest, unique heritage including Buddhist shrines and Royal Palaces, and a vibrant nightlife. Thailand is off the charts for ease and convenience as a result of having built out the necessary physical and human infrastructure to handle 25+ million tourists per year.
The city was once known for its legendary traffic jams but the last ten years has seen the arrival of the Skytrain (BTS) and underground (MRT) so getting around is easy and fast. One can still take a water taxi on a khlong or hire a long-tail boat for speed but for the most part navigating the city is painless.
Bangkok is the capital of Thailand and its most populous city. Its location on the Gulf of Thailand has endowed it with a cosmopolitan population. The hot and humid climate is wet monsoon, with temperatures peaking in December, and cooler in April when it is drier. The population of the city of some six million is mainly Thai, although there is also an established English speaking community.
Bangkok was the wellspring of modern education in Thailand. It hosts the country’s five oldest universities, namely Thammasat, Kasetsart, Mahidol, Silpakorn, and Chulalongkorn where the first dental school opened in 1940. These days, all but Silpakorn have joined it in its task. Thanks to this, Bangkok has a thriving community of medical professionals.
Its dentists – many of whom speak English fluently – regularly perform tooth implants, take impressions for dentures, and fit porcelain veneers for western dental tourists. Their clients appreciate their gentle natures and, of course, their lower dental prices on currency conversion rates. And if there are any skeptics please note that the level of professionalism is second to none in all of Asia. Many dentists are members of the International College of Implantologists or associate members of the American Dental Association. These guys and gals are good!
Notwithstanding this, finding the right Bangkok dentist for routine treatments or cosmetic work can prove a challenge, when time zones intervene. Dental Travel Services has forged relationships with carefully selected Thai dentists in this great city. Our modern systems, and our depth of experience make everything simpler.
Clients arriving at Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK) for dental treatment in Bangkok are often amazed by its stunning ethnic design that belies the utmost efficiency, and most advanced equipment. Remarkably, it is also the fourteenth largest single-building air passenger facility in the world. This is just a foretaste of the advanced dental services that await them beyond its doors. Elsewhere in the city, there are many exciting culinary, historic and artistic experiences to explore.
Hotels range from luxuriously international through to budget and backpackers, to suit your taste. Our western guests often favor those in the pulsating Ploenchit-Chidlom and Sukhumvit districts, where glittering mega-malls are just a ‘stone’s throw’ away. If you are traveling with a partner who is receiving dental treatment, you can pass the time away by visiting sights like the Grand Palace, or one of many historic Buddhist Temples.
