I tend to get dental work done in whatever country I'm working in. A couple months ago I was in Indonesia (Surabuya) and had a filling come out. I went to a local dentist which happened to be a nice young lady who was educated in England. With a teeth cleaning and the filling fixed I was on my way for 12 dollars!!

OMG!!! So why does it have to cost 20 times that here?

Dental Tourism is a big industry these days due to the extremely high costs here in the US. you can literally fly just about anywhere else in the world and get your work done for much less then it would cost you here. your insurance will also help cover the costs (get approval first for the procedure needed. you have to pay first, then submit for re-reimbursement. they pay at the same %, but you get a LOT more bang for your buck. no reimbursement for flights of course, but it's negligible in the grand scheme of things). just find someone with good reviews

I'd consider it if you could plan ahead.
I just got a price of $550, my part, after insurance pays $750 for a simple crown.....
