What would $55 buy me at home? A dozen starbucks coffees? Two or three good books? A couple new-release DVDs? Maybe one night in a cheap hotel?
Well, at the Bangkok Smile Clinic, it bought me a visit to an utterly professional, friendly and clean dentist – including a checkup, x-rays, one silver filling, and one tooth colored filling. All finished in one quick visit. I’m just sayin’ – one of those fillings alone would cost me twice that at home WITH insurance.
Not a typical tourist stopover, but Thailand has invested a lot in building their tourist indistry, including medical tourism. Only one day out of my vacation, and im glad i did it.
