Looking for a cheap Dentist..

By Genie - 21 May 2007 25

Can anyone recommend a good dentist that wont charge me an arm and a leg to take my teeth ?

(I did try the Ginninderra Medical and DENTAL Centre, only to be informed that they dont actually have a dentist.. )

What’s Your opinion?

I actually went to the Dentist at the ANU and she was pretty good.

Standard high Dentists prices but not outrageous in the circumstances.

Actually gave me the best teeth flossing lesson I’ve ever had…(I still hate blooody flossing).

There is a dentist in the Union building at the ANU who looks extremely dodgy, so I would imagine he/she is cheap.

The waiting room is two old chairs, the walls are painted 60’s green, and there is never anyone in there. It smells cheap and nasty to me.

I go to the Belconnen Dental Centre in the Churches Centre on Benjamin Way. There was an outstanding female dentist there, but she’s left to go back to uni in Sydney to do paediatric dentistry. The other dentists I saw there (forget his name) wasn’t bad. Price was fairly reasonable for someone with no private health cover.

If you’re a member of AHM health fund, there’s a free clinic at Wagga and another in Sydney (about a block from Central Station and Paddy’s Market). Why they don’t have one in Canberra, I just do not know.

Locally, I would agree that cheap and good don’t go together for dental work. I see Dr Quoy in Ainslie, and he does a great job for a reasonable price. Doing the job right first time means I don’t have to go back a year later to have fillings re-done.

The Dentist in the Churches centre in Belco is quite good.

Ive got a few mates that have had dental work done in Thailand and its fine. Also the odd Hernia operation done in Vietnam haha. I myself had an operation done in Pretoria South Africa after being medivaced from Angola but thats another story.

I am very handy with the needle-nosed pliers, and do not charge much.

The only downside is that I administer chloroform with a large cloth and a certain amount of force.

‘Cheap’ and ‘good’ do not typically go together.

I know of one just up the road from the hooker with high moral standards.

A Dental Centre without a dentist? Sounds a bit monty python to me…

I recently had some work done, William Thompson in Manuka was the dentist. Not overly expensive and did a good job.

I go to a bloke in Moss Vale, is that too far way??

Go to Singapore.

Get root canal for a 1/4 of the cost in an 1/8th of the time.

Ah, so that flash new medical centre is all a clever ruse to lure dental patients in to see a doctor?

Apparently it’s totally worth it to buy a flight to Bangkok and have all your dental work done there. I’m told they’re brilliant, clean, professional, and about half the cost of Aussie dentists. Plus you get a holiday in Thailand.

So I’m told anyway. Never done it myself.
