She finally found a dentist that she relies on. I only trust myself now, so religiously brush my teeth every day and have then cleaned and checked in CH once a year by a recommended hygienist.


Kudos for the great summation.

Re: Swiss Dentistry

I don't have personal experience but a friend of mine decided to go to GErmany for a big service.
She found in Waldshut, in internet, an english speaking clynic and went there for a check.
They did rx and a detailed check and came out with an offer.
she found the offer much convenient than hte average prices in Baden/tzrich area.
for sure, for a standard check/small things might not worth that much to go to germany.

Re: Swiss Dentistry

I had root canal and a new crown on one tooth in Geneva and the bill was CHF 3800. Admittedly, it did involve treating an abscess, so I think 4-5 visits in all. Oh, and an additional CHF172 charged by a colleague of the dentist when he wasn't available because he hadn't properly drained all the yuk from the abscess so the temporary blob of gunk put over the tooth whilst the crown was being made had to be removed and the abscess re-drained.


I almost had an emergency dash to the hospital intensive care following a near heart attack when I first saw the bill and I still have nightmares thinking about it. If I hadn't just lost my job, I could definitely fly back to the UK (first class) and go back to using my old, very excellent private dentist at a fraction of the price.

Re: Swiss Dentistry

I have two things that I am curious about:

Looking at the following numbers at a doctor in Oerlikon, things do not seem to be too bad:

200 CHF'ish for a filling is a bit more than what you'd pay in Germany.

The shown price is only the main labour, however finally other things like anaesthesia, kofferdam application, etc etc will be added on which will move numbers upwards.

Root canal is not always required if the root pulp is exposed.
Check the link for the option.Dentists don't normally mention this
option as its much cheaper than root canal.
I was told I needed root canal and after some research requested
the direct pulp cap.It worked 100 % and cost slightly more than a filling.

thanks for the information. which dentist was this? and had he first suggested you a root canal? or did the dentist offer you this solution at the first go?
