What is it? A dental practice? Chewing gum factory?

Re: Vitadent center (Fribourg), opinions?

Both my husband and I have been there after a recommendation from a work colleague - him for "emergency" treatment (really good, up-front about pricing and happy with their work).
I went for a check-up and clean recently. Hadn't been to the dentist in years (don't judge!) and was really nervous about going but they were really kind. They will give you a very good idea of what the price will be over the phone and seemed to be cheaper than other ones I had found in Fribourg. Also was able to get an appointment quite quickly.

Re: Vitadent center (Fribourg), opinions?

I had an emergency (undiagnosed severe toothache) when my dentist was on holiday, once.

Made an appointment quite quickly and turned up with a wallet full of cash.
The dentist took a couple of x-rays, but wasn't able to determine the cause of my pain, and just replaced a filling and relieved me of a couple of hundred plus, then and there, for the privilege.

The problem did alleviate itself for a short while, but ultimately I ended up having to go to my normal dentist, who had a good moan about what they didn't find and what they did and didn't do, and ended up having to tug the tooth, because it was too late to save.

I got the impression that this practice employed relatively newly qualified dentists, who may have recently moved to Switzerland from their home country (where they may have trained) - but this was purely based on my own observations and not based on any knowledge to back this up or to the contrary ...... and was a few years ago, so may be different, now.

I have to say that after a quick visit to them, I had the same impression, which is also a pure personal observation. This was the reason that prompted me to ask for feedback here.

I went there with sudden pain, a quick look (no x ray) and they guy told me I have to extract two wisdom teeth. If I will do that, I am extremely reluctant, I want to take them out at a place where they really know what they are doing.

Thanks for the feedback

Thanks for the feedback, they are indeed quite nice in the way they deal and explaining the costs.

I think they would be a very good place for regular dental check ups. I am not sure how good they would be in wisdom tooth extraction (which they want to do).
