Now, one of good things about Malaysia is that you are still able to get really cheap dental care however the only challenge is that everyone wants it therefore the wait time is a bit longer.
One Govt Dental Clinics nearby my place is Klinik Kelana Jaya which I visited just recently. After a quick registration of RM1 ( $0.25 ) you then need to wait for your turn to see the dentist .
Now … Mondays – Thursdays are for Adults and Fridays are special for kids to go and do their checkups.
The nurses and registration was pretty fast as we were there very early like 7:30 in the morning. Even at that time, there were a few people already waiting to visit the dentists.
SO ! The wait !
It took about 1hour 30 minutes to get to our turn. Even though there were about 3 dentists in 3 different rooms it still took awhile to get to us. And we were number 10 in line.
Finally we managed to get in and the dentists was really nice and friendly. They were stressed out with sooo many patients but they still manage to keep a smile and talk calmly.
Looks like their day was going to be a long one and we were done within 20 mins with the dentist.
Ok .. thats my total cost for going to this dentist. a total of RM2 !! Thats about $0.50 … however the only set back was the time it took which was a total of about 2 hours which is mostly just waiting and waiting.
So if you are planning to go and get your dentals done however have a really tight budget , I do suggest checking out the govt dental clinics… their equipment may be slightly more dated however they can get the job done just as well.
Cheers and have a brilliant weekend !
