“i meant to write this review for these guys for a long time.After staying at a house for 4 years, our landlord decided to change a lot of the deals with our house, we started looking for a new house.After spending days looking on the internet, we drove around all the West lake area to find a new ...”
I hve been there today. It seems to be a decent local dentist, but cannot be compared to international standard. The check-up lasted no more than 15 seconds, only done with a mirror. The teeth cleaning was done in about 5 min! All quite basic. I had been to Westcoast before and they had found 8 things to be fixed. The Australian found none. Which one to be trusted? The rip-off or the superficial one?
I wish I had found this place years ago, back before I spent many thousands on fillings and root canals(in Austaralia) that have since started falling out.
I went here for the first time after chomping on a bone/stone in a bowl of pho, losing two fillings. I was in a fair bit of pain, I had left it for a week as I had already booked a trip to Sapa, so decided to chomp down some pain killers and suck it up. Turned into a night mare return trip as I was given the wrong pills for the return trip, my face swelled up and I was in crazy pain. I called the clinic on my return and they had me in the next morning.
My dentist Van Anh is proffesional, funny and the big one for me doesn't fluff around, just gets it done. It ended up I needed a root canal in one tooth, fillings and crown on both. My first step on being told something like this back home would be to approach the bank for a loan,I honestly felt embarassed when told the price, maybe $6000 cheaper than what I would pay in Aus. I ended up getting top of the range crowns with 7 year Guarantee.
So yes the price was great and service just as good. I have a bit of a problem getting my mouth numb, I've had this happen at home as well, the difference being that each visit, each neddle is charged. Here I ended up having to return 3 times for what should of been done in 1 visit, was never charged anymore than quoted, infact because they could not drill my tooth down any further they ended up putting in a newly released crown that should of been another $75, at no extra cost.
As has been mentioned you do sometimes share a room with another client, though in 10 visits I have only had this happen once and it was not even noticable. Everything is clean, neat, proffesional and EFFICIENT. I can not recommend Australian Dental Clinic enough, especially DR Van Anh.
*Have just returned to get another root canal and crown, damn you boney pho.
I came here with a sore tooth and was very happy with the service.
The dentists are not Australian, the name comes from the director who trained in Australia. But it was all very professional and in some ways better than Australian experiences that I have had in the chair.
You can make an appointment (which is a good sign of how busy and organised the place is). My dentist knew some key words in English (pain, tooth types, filling, sensitive). I speak a little Vietnamese and was immensely impressed with how clearly he explained things. For instance, in explaining why one of my teeth was under stress he said in simple Vietnamese, 'When four people are carrying a table and they share the load it is no problem. But if one person is much taller he/she will really notice it'.
I had an x-ray and a thorough examination and it came to 200,000 dong - which I thought was good value.
It had been a long time since I’d been to the dentists, relying on the “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” maxim. In the past I’d directed friends to Australian Dental clinic, and they’d always been happy. Eventually, it was my turn to call on them, because I had persistent toothache for too long, and it hurt to chew. My wife went too, and she had a scale and polish. I had the same, then an x-ray and then three fillings put in (all in different wisdom teeth). The dentist suggested that if I had any more problems with my wisdom teeth I should have a general anaesthetic and have the all yanked at the same time. All this poking about in my gob (and the cleaning of my wife’s chompers) set us back the princely sum of $60, which wouldn’t even get you on the chair back home, let alone the rest of it.
My mouth was only better for a few days, then I started hurting worse than before - and in a different place - so I went back. It turned out that now that my cavities weren’t hurting me, I had changed the way I was chewing and the general alignment of my mouth and so the wisdom tooth that didn’t have a hole was now biting down on my lower gum. This dentist suggested I pull it then and there. Sure, why not I said, and went off for an x-ray. Then another. And a third, and finally they were good to go. No superpowers have manifested themselves yet from all the radiation, but I live eternally in hope.
Pulling the tooth was surprisingly quick and painless. I’m not scared of dentists (I reserve that sort of fear for optometrists), so maybe that sort of mindset helped. Before long I had some gauze in my mouth and a perscription for some pills to help it heal and I was out the door for 500,000. Twenty five bucks for twenty five minutes work - you can’t complain. I didn’t have to put up with the tyranny of mush for too long, and was back to biting my way through planks and power-cables in no time, it healed up a treat, so I guess that means he did a good job of pulling it.
But a few months later I was back again. After all this grief from my wisdom teeth, I knew they were the culprits again. The bottom one hurt far worse, and so I was explaining to the dentist that it hurt up the back, top and bottom, but especially here, pointing to my lower jaw. This dentist didn’t have much English at all, and after another x-ray (maybe I get a loyalty card bonus after my 10th?) he said he will pull out the tooth. I figured singular was better than nothing, or perhaps he meant he was going to pull one and then the next, so told him to have at it. Again it was quick and painless but this time it was immensely funny as the building next door was being renovated, and it was done to the sounds of drills, hammers and other such caconophy. I couldn’t stop laughing, and I am sure he saw the funny side of it too. He hauled out the top wisdom tooth, then said we were done. Trying to ask about the bottom one was pointless with the language barrier and me biting down on the gauze, so I figured once it healed up enough I’d come back and have the bottom one on that side pulled out. This visit was, 500,000 and took about half an hour again.
So far there has been no need for me to head back... once again it must have been the way I was holding my jaw to dodge the pain from the tooth as it’s been a couple months now and there’s not been a twinge down the bottom so the dude really knew what he was doing.
If you need something ripped out, these guys are great. Not so sure on the filling side of things, as one of the teeth they pulled was also one they patched up. But I certainly can’t complain about the price.
If you like Australian Dental Clinic...
