Lately, I’ve been going to the dentist every week. Old fillings needed replacing and I must say that dental work in Korea is not only affordable but it is pleasant. The initial check-up cost 5,000W (approx. $5USD) and each ceramic filling is 200,000W (approx. $200USD) without insurance. Also, the dentist is gentle and nimble, the work thus far has been done without any novacaine.


I hear dental implants originated here and it costs about half what you pay stateside.
