Dentist close to Swiss border

I am looking for a dentist close to the border, preferrably in Germany because my son needs braces - could anyone help me out?

well, i heard there are ass cheap dentists in ukraine aswell.
my point is, apparently you live in zug, you have to travel to get to this "cheap" dentist, maybe you save on the first visit some bucks (dont forget the money you have to spend for the train/gasoline), but asoon there is a complication, or your son needs a review, you will end up spending way more. maybe talk to your insurance?

and, at the end, its your son...

I think the question posted was: do you know of a dentist preferably in Germany? Not, do you think it is a good idea? Please let's not jump on judging.

I think you need to add the letters "ome" and "ing" - something to do with text speak and the youth of today...

Re: Dentist close to Swiss border

I had an emergency and went to a dentist here in Basel, I would recommend him definetely...he is German! LOL
But if you want orthodontics or esthetic treatments (meaning non emergency) doing it outside CH is recommended. I had a tooth removed and they told me they would charge me 3500-3800 CHF to replace it (1 tooth!) besides the costs of diagnostics etc

Re: Dentist close to Swiss border

Braces are very expensive make sure you have an insurance for teeth we insured our kids teeth when they were young

Talking of Dentist i went to the Dentist with my daughter today and while she was lying down in the chair she could watch cartoons to take her mind off what was happening in her mouth how cool is that i wish i had had that when i was a kid

Unfortunately my son didn't come here until recently and he is too old to get insured for braces, you have to do that in Switzerland when they are still very young. At his age the insurance wants a dentist report first and since it's obvious he needs braces no chance to get him insured or only for a lot of money so it's cheaper to pay yourself.

I've had so many private messages about this, I thought I'd better finally put the details here:

Speaks English as does at least one of the assistants. After seven or eight years as a patient, I discovered this important fact last month...
