Dental care

The “land of genuine smiles” offers inexpensive, professional dental care.

While expats shrink from getting medical care in Cambodia, most will concede that the dental care is quite good, and very reasonably priced. There are a number of international dentists working here, and even more Cambodian dentists who have been trained abroad.

In Phnom Penh, expats favor the European Dental Clinic and the Roomchang Dental Hospital. Surprisingly enough, European Dental has actual European dentists. Cleanings there cost $40. Roomchang dentists are foreign-trained Khmers, and a check-up and cleaning costs $20.
