Cheaper Dental Anyone?

Dental is always cheaper overseas right? Wrong..

Do you still believe that you will spend a fraction of the cost you would pay for dental here in Australia? 

Do yourself a favour. Get a second opinion!

Here are some examples of a few of  the hundreds of  clients who had heartbreaks and near misses but you wont hear about it..

Cheaper-Dental

Case 1- Paid $13000.00 plus 2 trips to Thailand and spent close $20000.00 for a job that would have cost  under $10000.00 here.

We recently saw a lady in her late 70’s who had been to Thailand through a local tour operator. She had been to Thailand in October 2016 and had 4 implants and bone grafting process done. She went again in April and has a new upper denture and lower denture fitted to her implants. She was in intense pain form the lower denture. She went to a local dental prosthetist but he refused to see her. She has been visiting our office to get the denture corrected and spend more dollars. It was heartbreaking to inform her that there she was over serviced and the job could have been done here at Oris Dental for under $10000.00. She regrets the decision but is too scared to tell her kids and friends because of the fear of being ridiculed.

Case 2- Manila horror. Cost $ 45000.00 for a $16000 job!

We saw a lady who had been to Manila through a recommendation. She had implant treatment worth $15000 done with a fixed bridge. The bridge was 3 years old and it was starting to feel loose. Unfortunately the dentist had used 15 mini implants instead of the 4/6 regular sized implants and it could not be repaired. The implants were failing and we were advised to refer her to the specialist. She was referred to a specialist dentist who had to remove all implant sand redo the whole process costing her another 30000.00. If she had come to us in the first place for the implants and the fixed bridge it would have cost $28000 less than what she eventually paid!

Case 3- Phuket about it!. Quoted $17000.00 plus flights and accommodation

A charming 30 year old with dental issues. He was given a quote of $17000,00 for ‘fixing’his teeth. Apparently he needed 20 root canals and crowns.  After careful assessment we changed the plan as he did not need the root canal in  most of those teeth, The case was completed for under $15000 and more importantly we saved him of many root canals that he didn’t need!

Case 4- Chinese adventures. Denture well stuck.

This person had 4 implants done in China but could not go back to get the denture fitted. He decided to use superglue on his denture to attach the denture to the healing abutments. Apparently, they were not very successful. He then used ”Super Duper” glue for Bunnings warehouse and the denture has been stuck in for 5 years. He now thinks it may have been a bad idea. Sorry Sir We cannot help!
