Re: Root Canal

I had to do two root canals and the tooth caps within months of my arrival in Zurich in 2001. Since I was new and didn't have a "family" dentist, and since I worked close to Zurich airport, I was directed to the Dental centre at Zurich airport.

The dentist was efficient and did a good job. However, I almost fainted when I received the bill. I was well aware of how expensive Switzerland was. However, I was not expecting to pay CHF4500 for two root canals and two caps.

Look at other options if possible.

That does sound well over the top... I had a few done in Neuchâtel at roughly the same time (1999 - 2000) and paid about 700 CHF per tooth if I remember rightly.

It could well be. I was new then and had the misfortune of having two very painful teeth at the same time. I had no choice but to go to the first dentist who was willing to take me. {As an aside, I remember one dentist's assistant actually asking something which amounted to "how could you have a toothache if you dont' have an appointment" }

Could the dentists in Zurich be more expensive than NE?

Subsequently, I have had some dental work done in Nyon and the charges here compare with what I had paid in Zurich.
