Need reliable cheap dentist

Postby Yali80 » Sun, 22 Nov 2009 7:15 pm

Dear fellow expats,

I am new in Singapore and in search for a reliable cheap dentist, proficient in English.

I have one month on my private health care plan left and could still get insurance paid dental care amounting to 2200 SGD.

As I have an inlay in 8 teeth, which all need to be renewed cost is obviously an issue. Note: Inlay not filling.

Besides, I have a special medical condition which requires anaesthetization to be renewed several times during the process since for some reason - I do not fully comprehend - the liquid is somehow disappearing through small holes in my bones, at least that is what I was told by my dentist back home. On top of that the nerves in my mouth are highly sensible and I am equally nervous during the whole procedure. Non-considerate treatment and/or the feeling that the dentist is not listening to my requirements would definitely freak me out.

What is more is that I do the occasional leisure dive and bad craftsmanship would lead to decompression issues within the teeth which is supposedly extremely painful.

While being a guy I have found that considering my special angst issues during treatments, I have been notably more at ease with female dentists in the past.

So here comes my obvious question:

Can anyone recommend a preferably female dentist

- whose craftsmanship is beyond doubt
- whose English is such, that there can’t be any doubt that she will
totally understand the above elaborations
- who is charging no more than lower medium market rates

Does anyone have an approximate idea how much the renewal of 8 inlays would cost in Singapore?

Thanks and cheers!

Most dentist in Singapore speaks perfect English. I did my inlay and it cost me around $50ish.

Q & M Dentists are available at most neighborhoods. They're not bad. Got my wisdom tooth extraction and fillings done there.

On average, how much is a check up, filling etc. in Singapore? In Ireland it costs an arm and a leg so thinking of getting some work done here.

The prices for dental works here are fine. 2200 should be able to cover 8 fillings with leftover, unless they suggest you do something else for your teeth.
