English Speaking Dentist near Montreux

Would be so grateful if someone could suggest an English speaking dentist in the Montreux area, please?

The worst has happened - one of my crowned teeth has chipped and never has England and my lady dentist seemed so far away

Try my dentist, Dr. de Kalbermatten, in the centre of Vevey by the lake.
He's excellent.
I'm in London at the moment, and haven't got his number here, but he's in the phone book.

I really appreciate your quick response and will look the number up. Many thanks. As usual, Lac Leman looks beautiful!

Re: English Speaking Dentist near Montreux

It might be cheaper to go to London, especially if it's a big job. Ask for an estimate before going ahead, Swiss dentists can make Harley Street prices seem very reasonable.

Re: English Speaking Dentist near Montreux

Considering the type of work that dentists do, I think I might want to get the get dentist available---PERIOD---even if they only spoke German and I did not know the language yet.

Thanks for your advice, will heed - I wouldn't be likely to pop into Harley Street looking for a dentist if back in the UK!

I have seen an English comment on another website saying that Swiss dentistry was "prohibitively expensive" but I was being optimistic! I really do try not to keep on getting out my currency converter and saying "How much?!!!

Sound advice, thanks. Am just looking for the ideal until Monday before contacting a dentist and getting an estimate.

Re: English Speaking Dentist near Montreux

Dr Fredrik J-F Quenard 021 963 32 07 or his wife (I have forgeotten her name). Anyway they are both wonderful and Dr Quenard has been very very accommodating in fitting me into his chockablock diary. My front crown came out! They are right in the centre of Montreux on Grand Rue with views to the lake.
