Re: Dentist in Germany?

Is it worthwhile going to Germany for dental treatment? How much cheaper is it?

Re: Dentist in Germany?

What about in Singen or Waldshut. These German towns are easy to reach by train from Zürich, and Singen at least is good for shopping at German prices. I also get a haircut when I am there, killing a few birds with one stone.

I have found Swiss dental insurance to be poor value, from what I saw they seem to reimburse 50% of dental costs in Switzerland, but I reckon that a German dentist would be half the price. So without dental insurance, it would be possible to get dental treatment at the same cost.

It would be useful to know a few more dentists over the border. Germany is only about 30km from Zürich. Any more recommendations?

Re: Dentist in Germany?

Hello - I've been searching around and thought I would ressurect this thread.

Can anyone provide details of a good dentist in any of the German border towns, i.e. name & location? My wife needs some dental treatment (root canal & crown) and we wanted to compare a few prices before going with the Swiss option.

Any help gratefully received!

Re: Dentist in Germany?

we found a dentist in jestetten called Oliver Hamm with a google search. he speaks english, it cost 70 euro for a check up and a mega clean for my daughter, personally i did not think that was too bad but others may disagree.

Looking for a dentist in Konstanz ? or DE north of ZRH

Hello - I am looking for a dentist for my son, he needs basic care/has a few cavities and the quote here was horrendous. My dentist in St Louis is not open when I plan to travel to FR so was wondering if anybody had recomm in neighboring Germany ?

I noted no responses to this thread Any recommendations for dentists in Weil am rhein/Lörrach?

Thank you in advance

In answer to questions seen in other threads :
1. No, the health insurance does not cover it
2. I am looking for cheaper care within one hour drive, not India or Hungary
3. I am not interested in comments about whether I am cheap or a bad parent

Thank you all and regards

Dr. Dirk Jansen in Konstanz is quite reasonable.

Re: Looking for a dentist in Konstanz ? or DE north of ZRH

I don't think you'd be a bad parent at all, my German dentist remains unbeaten for price clarity, excellent level of treatment and overall care. That's why I don't mind spending a few hours in the train just to get a filling (which obviously kind of offsets the saving advantages...but I still think it's worth it).

Unfortunately, I don't have suggestions for Konstanz, but maybe you can trust the German love for reviews and use this website: users can leave suggestion points ("Empfehlungspunkte") and doctors are ranked on the basis of how many they get. Under each profile you see where the dentist specializes. No mention of whether they speak English, but maybe you can just call and ask.

Thank you all.

I would also like to call on the moderator to explain to me why on earth this thread got moved from Family matters/Health to Off-Topic, especially when I searched and found related threadds in Family matters/Health .

Pls can the moderator explain to all or PM me about this. I am obviously missing something.

Re: Dentist in Germany?

Normally non-Swiss Threads, (e.g. questions about Germany) go into off-topic. However, there were, as you said, some questions about 'Dentists in Germany' in Family Matters so I added your question to the others there.

Hi there

can you tell me when you found a recommended dentist over the border from Basel (so Weil am Rhein, Lörrach etc)? S/he does not need to speak English, German is fine.

Hello Tesso,

for a while I come to this englishforum without registering and today, after your thread I finally decided to register to ask you a question:

Do you like Portugal?
reason why I ask you this is..for the amount of money you paid (2K EUR) I would go to PT, do ALL of that, and come back with 1K EUR in my pocket.

I dont understand you people...or you have waaaaaay too much money or you really dont think about any other choices AT ALL.

And now you are going to ask about how long does it takes in PT to do all that (7days) thus meaning you could even join that with nice holidays...and yes the Dentists ARE that good - same level as german and WAYYYYYYYYY Better than Dutch, Swiss, Belgium, Polish, french, danish.

And its funny...still I didnt see a straight answer to the question put into this forum about a dentist in germany (singen lets say) and quoting the price...
Only people shooting things of the air.


And hey, if you dont like the "bluntness" and honesty then you just cannot take a straight answer - call me dutch...
