the dreaded dentist

hello all,

was thinking about maybe going to the dentist out there as i heard it's quite cheap, anyway 9 sleeps to go and i've pulled a filling out with chewing gum so i'm going to have to go now!

heard a bit about" smiles" in calangute. anyone recommend them or anywhere else? also is it that much cheaper?

Both me & my hubby went to smiles a few times in nov & we were very pleased, between us we had check ups a polish a crown & whitening. We are going again next week to goa & will book in for another check up.( Go for it ) when you have been there a couple of day's.

hi steve,

well what you are saying is definately the right thing and you can be definately sure you can get good dental treatment done out there in goa....

I personally got done done at "International dental Rehabilitation Clinic" 24 crowns and to tell you the fact i was really terified to go to a dentist as i was scared as a child but these guys were really great .. and the cheapest as well ....

they are at the golden nest in calangute , close to the calangute market on the arpora road, they are known as the SMILES as it says on their visiting card you can call the dentist Dr Toshepu at 9822147148 just put the india code guess it is 0091 or smething

any way have a great holiday and a good treatment

YEP, i went to smiles in calangute, had a cap done, no problems 12 months later, so i'd say they are OK.

Hi saffidog

Hope you had a good time.

Did you go to the dentist, and if so would you reccommend them?

Can you ( or jerseysue) remember approximate cost of check up and clean, crown and whitening.

We're off to the Nizmar at the end of the month and my hubby's got a wobbly crown, and we're struggling to get an appointment before then locally even going private!

Thought we may as well both try a dentist in Goa.
