Bangkok Smile Dental Clinic Ploenchit is Bangkok Smile Dental Group’s (BSDG) pioneer clinic located in Ploenchit Road, a premier shopping and business district in Bangkok. The clinic, which is located on the opposite side of Central Chitlom Mall and Central Embassy, is accessible via the BTS Skytrain and buses.
The clinic was established in 2003 as a response to the growing need of international patients for world-class but affordable dental care while on a holiday in Thailand. In order to provide dental services that meet or even exceed internationally accepted standards, the clinic has invested heavily in its facilities and acquiring the latest technologies and equipment designed to improve patient outcomes and dental experience. These include state-of-the-art digital x-ray systems, computerised laboratory equipment, and advanced computer imaging.
The clinic uses high-quality materials and features its own ISO-accredited in-house laboratory where prostheses and other dental restorations are made, which means lesser waiting time for patients so they’ll have more time to enjoy their holiday in Thailand. Although the quality of treatments and procedures is on par with western standards, the clinic's fees are significantly more affordable when compared to dental clinics in western countries, allowing international patients to save up to 75% on services and procedures such as dental implants and extreme dental makeover. For this reason, the majority of the clinic’s clients are from countries across the globe including America, Britain, Australia, and New Zealand.
