Bumrungrad Hospitl, considored as about the best

http://www.bumrungrad.com

The dental clinic pagebr />
http://www.bumrungrad.com/en/clinics/dental.asp

If it's major work and you need to overnight even a de-luxe room is under $100!

It has also been written up on various news/media, Tme Magazine, Los Angeles Times, CNN Wall Strret Journal etcbr />

You might also think ( I don't think we have mentioned, perhaps I will post to mention also ) that the full physical check-ups are I guess very resonable, a basic chec up program is about USD 60, their top full medical check is about USD 260. I have no idea how much these things cost in US/Europe but they sound very reasonable considoring the place is like 5-star!

As far as care and attention I can only compare with Aus/SA and although both those countries have very good dentists as someone who used to come out in shakes at the sight of a dental clinic and almost pass out at the thought of a drill I am 'cured', I guess the simplest way to describe it it imagining the most charming Thai you have met and putting them in a white coast with a mounth drill in their hand ! Totally stress free, calm, relaxing, no worries, easy going, big smile, never mind/don't worry attitude and someone who literally holds your hand if you are nervous, hope you get the idea!
