Are you looking for the best dentist in Vietnam?
Many American or Australian get good and affordable dental work when they go to Vietnam. However, some receive average or substandard quality. Just like anywhere you go, whether it’s the US, Australia or Vietnam, you can find good dentists and bad dentists.
If you want your trip to be fruitful, a little bit of research is a must. It’s your money, your appearance, and your health at stake. Trial and error is not practical with out-of-town dentistry.
Here is a comprehensive guide to help you find the best dentist in Vietnam.
Tip 1. Quality first, price secondary
You get what you pay for. You are already saving 50-70% so don’t sacrifice quality over price. It will save you hassles of costly rework, which can easily double or triple your cost. Plus bad dentistry is emotionally draining, sometimes traumatic.
In good humor, we commonly hear from older clients, “I am not going to live more than 10 or 20 years, I don’t need to see the best dentist in Vietnam. I just want a cheap dental work in Vietnam.”
Unfortunately, bad dental work is likely going to fail within 3 - 6 months to a couple of years. It’s always a wise decision to invest a little more with a better dentist.
Tip 2. Know your dental condition
Know a little about your teeth before your dental travel. How many fillings or crowns do you need? Do you need bone grafting with your implant? Does your crown need a root canal?
If you know what’s going on in your mouth, you’ll be able to spot an unethical dentist that’s trying to recommend more than what you need.
A good way is to get a local dental consultation first to understand your treatment plan, and request a quote from dental clinic in Vietnam via email.
Tip 3. Find a dentist that provides a reliable guarantee
Avoid costly mistakes, especially if you need extensive dental work. Even though it’s in Vietnam, you are still making a significant investment in your health. Ask your dentist, “How long is your guarantee?”
Make sure you can trust your dentist in Vietnam to stand by his guarantee.

Tip 4. Check the reliability of referrals from friends, family, and online reviews
A dentist in Vietnam who could install a crown on your friend may not be the most qualified to do your smile makeover or dental implant. Just like any other medical field, dentistry has different specializations.
You might end up with a general dentist profusely sweating as he is installing a complicated tooth implant. You want someone who is confidently humming his favorite tunes as he is painlessly gliding your implants with micro precision in your mouth.
Tip 5. Verify safety and infection control guidelines
This includes proper hand washing, cleaning and sterilization of dental equipment, safety guidelines in emergencies, and clean and well maintained facilities.
The best dentists always prioritize safety at all times. You’d be surprised how much you can learn about a doctor’s attention to safety details by visiting the clinic and sitting on the dental chair.
