Cheap Dental Work in Ho Chi Minh City
by Tooth Tourist
I heard Ho Chi Minh City is a great place to get some dental work done on the cheap. I don't have any insurance back home so I'm thinking of getting my cavities filled while in Vietnam.
Am I an Idiot or is that a good idea?

You will save quite a bit of money if you get your dental work done while you're in Vietnam. But will they insert a used Rat's tooth in your mouth instead of moulding a new one from porcelain?
It's a funny picture but I get alot of questions about this. Everyone wants to save money but No One wants inferior work done in return.
I had some fillings done, a cleaning and even a root canal done while living in Ho Chi Minh City. The quality of the dentists varies wildly so you have to know who can offer good pricing along with quality of work.
Doing a test run is not a possibility but getting quality dental work done for reasonable cost is doable.

You'll find that they hire useless dental assistants and illogically inept secretaries but the dentists are top graduates of mostly overseas schools. They only operate under normal 9am-5pm times so...
If you smash your tooth on a beer bottle in the middle of the night and it feels as though your head is going to explode, then you can always head down to the 24 hour dental clinic.
Bring lots of cash because you can also get a nose job done while you're waiting! (They also do cosmetic surgery).
Their 24-Hour Emergency Contact Telephone # is 090 364 7156.
