Try Dr. Michaels (www.drmichaels.com) dental practice. I think they'll of any kind of work, from the standard fillings etc to cosmentic stuff. I'm in the midst of a root canal and crown, and the service and quality is excellent.

As for prices, from one Scotsman to another, expect them to be [email protected] terrifying.:ohmy:

uh oh, i know the prices are bad, but surely cant be much worse than scotland? i got quoted just shy of 5k for an implant from glasgow school of dentistry or ssomething, and around £2300 for one done in Poland. was interested to see how things were out here, as after xmas i might be making this a permanent location.

thanks.

These guys are excellent. I had laser veneers done there and they are very good.

Tooth implant around AED15,000 or AED18K to AED20K if they have to add bone (irradiated cow bone !) to your jaw to get the required depth for the screw. ASP Dubai Marina.

Teeth whitening can be very effective, however if you want to keep your teeth white after the procedure, you can never drink tea or coffee. Ever. Again.

I've met quite a few expats from here including a dentist who had their implants done in Thailand. Most, if not all, were happy with the results, can't recall hearing any horror stories. It seems the thais have been doing implants and such for quite a while and have the procedure pretty much down to an art form. Might be an option if you want to save money but definitely do your research and ask for references.

Just did a google out of curiosity, lots of info including cost.
