5 consideration before going for dental tourism in Phuket
1. Time. Each patient, based on their oral condition, has different dental treatment time. Please make a plan, ask our customer service, or even better make the appointment before you come.
2. Visa. Depending on your origin and length of stay, there are different Visa requirement. Please keep in mind on the visa rule as the policy of overstay is strict.
3. Discomfort after treatment. Although most of the patients have painless experience with Phuket Dental Signature, there are some common post-treatment discomfort such as numbness by local anaesthesia, sensitivity caused by in-office teeth whitening or swell caused by dental surgery.
4. Thai holiday. While we would be open for international patients most of the time, Thai public would still influence dental service providing. For example, dental lab might close so lab works will take longer time, and number of dentists might be less than normal during public holiday.
5. Unexpected events. It is amazing Thailand anyway so be prepared for anything off the schedule happens. It could be the actual treatment time longer than expected due to new information found upon physical examination, or meeting your special someone in patong and you decide to stay here forever. You will never know.
