I wanna get my teeth cleaned, maybe whitened and get some fillings.

Where would you reccomend in SE Asia or India? Cheap but good?

Wherever you go, you have to remember that dentists are busy and you could end up with an appointment in a few weeks after your initial visit. If you have travel insurance (recommended), you can go to a dentist with a toothache and maybe claim the money back. I would not pick India, but maybe Bangkok. One of the TAT (Tourist bureaus) will be able to advise you of a nearby dentist. There is one by the Skytrain and KFC at Siam Square. Another on the corner of Rama IV and Silom, by Robinsons.

My friend has used Pantip Dentistry for years. Good service, decent prices. Speaks perfect English. Corner of Patpong and Kings Corner. Wild at night, regular street daytime.

I have been able to get dental appointments pretty quick in Pattaya. Most of the dentists understand that being a tourist your time is limited. The dentists I used were on Central across the street and down a bit from Carrefour Mall. Another reason they don't mind accommodating you is because they can get a little more money from a tourist for the same amount of time and effort! Price was still reasonable compared to what I would have to pay in the US.

Good luck.

I would trust a THAI dentist... If can turn lady boys to womanhood, I am sure they can get your teeth whitened without burning your gums.

I had one tooth filling in Bangkok, and one in Macau, but the best job ever was a fake dentist in the streets of China... In the name of savings, I visited the fake dentist several times, and boy, they did an excellent job filling my tooth. The real doctors work would last for 2-3 months. But I am officially done with fake dentist, after I found out that the hospitals are cheap and they give free service to Asians with good english skills. I wasnt charged twice.
