Thx

Depends where you go, if you want deisgner furniture, 5 star hotel type reception then it will be as, if not more expensive than the UK.

Our new maid arrived with really bad teeth and breath, she has never been to a dentist. We sent her off she had 6 fillings and one extraction, bill came to 300 Sing dollars which seem very reasonable to me.

Even in the heartlands, one needs to shop around, my dentist is trained in UK, and I had one tooth, that used to be crowned, removed, the x-ray, showed a broken part of a tooth, that a dentist, hadn't removed properly too, so he removed two stumps really, not teeth...and that cost much more than an extraction, because he needed to cut the gum open and stich up...280 Sing$ I thought is was quite expensive considering it took only 20 minites.

Although they call it surgery, rather than tooth extraction...and christ i am suffering 6 days after :???: Looks like some butcher as been let lose on the gum, although he did say he was having difficulty getting the stump out...to be honest i don't think he had the strength to pull on it, so he's cut the gum at the front. when i saw how tiny the piece was, I was thinking to myself, that he should go to weight training..I'm thinking i was an experiment rather than a customer, my whole gum is black and blue and it aches like hell.

i think the threadstarter is asking for dental treatment like scalin and polishing.

most likely need to pay around $30 to $60 if you go private clinic.

Finally feel better today, after an increased dose of antibiotics, 4 every 3 hours...it was infected, hence the aches and pains, caling and polish set me back 85$ the last visit....Never even realised they did crowns, that's all i have left these days.

well i think if you include the exchange rate and stuff, dental treatment is of course still cheaper generally in sg.
