On holiday recently in Bangkok I had the misfortune to break a tooth leaving only the root. I was fortunate to have a Thai friend who attended Dentist@51 and recommended them. The team spoke perfect English and was able to explain the options open to me and answer all my questions. My situation was fairly complicated as the tooth root had calcified and the tooth next to it was in need of treatment. Plus I had a fairly complicated bridge which could have to be replaced. Everything was done in an impossibly short space of time and I was impressed by the time and care taken to make everything fit perfectly. The bill for this treatment was a fraction of the cost of similar treatment in the UK and the speed could not be matched even with a private dentist.
I did not fully appreciate how good your treatment was until I returned home. My own dentist (Private-not national health) was really amazed at the standard of work carried out. Your plan to cover two roots was exactly what he would have proposed. He asked for details about root canal treatment and said the procedure was exactly right.
He was really impressed with the bridge I received and said he could not have had one made in the time it had taken and it would probably have cost at least 3 or 4 times more than I had paid. My dentist also said his treatment would cost 4 times what you charge in Britain and up to 10 times that amount in America.
He also said he "'took his hat off" to the dentist that fitted it. He could tell from adjustments made to me dentures how much care had been taken to make a perfect fit.
Now I am back home I realize how lucky I was to have met you and how comfortable I feel with my teeth.
My dentist said the work done was perfect and he was really impressed. Without your patience and understanding I would probably not have proceeded with my treatment.
