    Hi Kiz, thank you for that. I actually contact S&J yesterday and asked about Dr. Chang, as he was the listed endo. His earliest day(only AM) is a bit later next week. I have been taking anti-inflamms, but this afternoon, it was flaring up while I was working and teaching. Affected my mood and performance. I booked Dr. Danny Low for tomorrow morning, and took Sick Leave. Very deflating feeling, but I believe I need to sort this out right away.

    Dr. Danny Low performed a root canal for me about 8 or 9 years ago. While expensive, I would say that it was totally worth it. I had a tooth extraction in 2022, and sometimes you get what you pay for. 4 days of insane pain that I aim to never repeat.

    Hi Cork, I did the procedure. It was fine- efficient, though he was chatting with the nurses during the whole procedure. Afterwards, he just gave me some meds and said that I can get a crown put later, but he didn't specify when. He didn't want to spend any time explaining any post-op protocol or care. Very impersonal dentist, I have to admit. I'll just avoid chewing on the side for a while.

    Cork, I asked that Danny Low today for a referral letter for a crown, addressed to Prince Phillip Dental Hospital. The Scumbag messaged back and said he would only write one for an extra $1000. Never in my life have I ever come across a doctor or dentist so fixed on on the Green.
    I'm Not questioning his ability or anything, but so devoid of humanity. And his attitude percolates down to the nurses- that was my impression. I do not remember ever regretting any decision more than seeing him for the root canal treatment. May Danny Low(pronounced 'Lau' in Cantonese) Rot in Hell.

    Oh that’s unfortunate, I had a lot of dental work done in Dec & Jan but in Phuket. I don’t think I will get work done again in Hong Kong again.

    Sorry for your experience John.

    Hi Cork, thanks for your support. Yes, I am generally a healthy guy, almost never taking sick leaves from work, except for dental issues. Dental procedures tend to be costly, even for minor ones, and my Bupa insurance(my company based) doesn't cover dental care. I got a Wisdom tooth removed yesterday by Dr. Phillip Lee. Costly, but he was a good dental surgeon. Hopefully, that will prevent root canals.

    As far as travelling overseas for dental treatment-not too feasible for me to fit that in a weekend as hard to take time off work. Cork, Do find it easy to communicate with Thai dentists? I found that communication with a dentist at times as far as discussing dental issues is just as important as the actual procedure done.

    Thai dentists have excellent English and if you got work done in Bangkok and opted for the large hospitals there is an excellent standard of care. To be fair the clinic I attended in Phuket, all the staff had a high standard of English and the dentists then had a better proficiency in English than what I have encountered here.

    Definition of Greed

    So my mother has been dealing with pain in her bottom right pre-molars. She was referred to an Endo specialist, Dr. Ho, who examined and suggested my mother could have her pre-molars filled first by her GP. That was done, but she has still been dealing with pain. Hence, we have booked an appointment tomorrow with Dr. Cora Ko, referred to a friend who herself is a dentist in HK Island.

    On that note- just want to put this despicable list of charges from Danny Low. Seriously, up to $80,000 for a 'medical report'? What is that, a thesis? And over $5,000 for consultation over 30mins long? Definition of Greed, indeed.

    Here is the list Danny Low's charges- look at the Medical Report of up to $80,000- what is that. Consultation past 30min- $5000 and up? This is beyond unethical. Even more significantly was his utter disregard, even disdain for the patient post-procedure.
