    Orthodontist suggestions

    Hi,
    I need an orthodontist for my teenage daughter. Anyone has recommendations ( Kowloon or HK side both okay)? Also, has anyone recently received quotes? We are not sure what the price range is in HK.

    Dr. Barry Yu at Penn Pacific Dental Center, Central.

    It's a small practice, spotless, excellent staff, and really good communication.

    A bit pricier than others I have been to, but well worth it. Consultation, scale and polish is $750, I believe.

    The price range is huge in HK - it all depends on what the dentist wants to charge (Termed "seafood price" in Cantonese) - Dentists in Central seem to charge a huge premium.

    I used Conrad Dental in TST for Invisalign a few years ago - standard and transparent pricing and efficient process (if you go during the week). Friends who did it recently said it was around 40k

    Hi Fei88, it's a Dental Center, so they also cater for alignment work etc. I had my invisalign done there.

    I would highly recommend Dr John Wu

    288 Queen’s Road West, Hong Kong
    Tel. 2559 1118
    All my children have been to him. He is excellent with children. Not sure of the prices now but you can contact him. My children and their braces have cost an arm and a leg but it was well worth it. My oldest daughter still insists on going to him!

    We went to Dr Ma at Bailey and Jackson in Central. He is retiring soon but the other Dr there is equally good. We were very happy with the care at Bailey and Jackson. We never waited more than 5-10 mins for our appts. When son was old enough he would go on his own after school. Braces are expensive - budget $50-80K

    Can we assume that your teenage daughter needs braces to realign her teeth over the coming months ?
    My teenage son got top quality braces fitted by our dentist in the Philippines. No booking, walk in service
    You might easily reject that idea, but it can be done for a lot less than the $50-$80K quoted
    Including airfares and hotels for you and your daughter, about $12-$15K ALL IN.
    Just a thought! It's a lady dentist, she did my triple crown so well I had the idea of doing Dental Tourism in the Philippines!
    PM me if interested

    I also saved a ton by flying to Bangkok almost monthly for 10 months. My initial cost for ceramic braces was approximately 6000HKD for upper and the same for lower. All metallic would have cost me 4000HKD per upper or lower. Each adjustment cost 600HKD and each flight rt cost approximately 1500HKD. I stayed for a few days each time at a cost of 400HKD for a 5* hotel. Worth every penny saved and enjoyable for each trip in spite of the painful, at times, adjustments. Please PM me for the details, if interested.
