I arrived in Nong Khai, Thailand by overnight train around 8am enroute to Vientiane, Laos, I jumped in the Tuk Tuk and was taken on a tour of Nong Khai looking for a dentist I’d read glowing reports about. Eventually I found his phone number, called him and gave my phone to the driver who spoke no English. Five minutes later I was at the dental office of Dr Preecha.
I was stoked! I was desperate for a scale and clean, his price of 500-600Bt was dirt cheap and I was going to take advantage. One look in my mouth he quoted me 500Bt; he’s honest too, off to a great start.
I have exceedingly sensitive teeth and Dr Preecha asked me to raise my left hand if I needed him to stop. Not only did I not need to, I was on the brink of falling asleep while he was working. I hardly felt anything the whole time!
