Dental Crown Disaster in Thailand - Dr.Sunil Dental Clinic Bangkok

"I would not recommend this clinic. Apart from the fact that the surgeon spoke no English and couldn't tell me that he didn't think the crown would succeed, they left a huge lump of cement was left under the gum (visible in x-rays taken by Dr Sunils clinic - see images) and continues to cause infection to this day. The crown was also badly shaped. I have seen 2 specialists here since and it is going to cost more to fix it up than than the original work. See report from Australian specialist attached.

I am very disappointed as they acted very friendly. I have been trying to get some money back from Dr Sunils clinic to get the cement cleaned away. They acknowledge the issue - but will only refund me if I have the whole crown removed and send the crown back to them. Then I would have to start again totally which will cost even more. I would be back to square one and minus all travel and specialist expenses since. Ultimately, they won't actually help so that I can get a satisfactory end result. Their website was dishonest and misleading (re the surgeon). I believe they've removed this now.


It was a very long drive to the clinic (despite what they advertise) and the clinic was not at all like a dental surgery here in Australia. Many of the staff didn't speak English. The clinic was recommended by Global Health Travel, who didn't help me at all when things went wrong. "
Dr Sunil Phol & his Specialist

Dr Sunil acted very nice but when I had problems they did not want to help me at all. I felt the treatment was 'rough' and rushed and they really did not take the proper care necessary.
