dentists in Kovalam

staying at the UDS in December and wanted to know if anyone has used the resident dentist there and what your thoughts are of the treatments.

Possibly interested in teeth whitening, any advise of any other dentists too ?

I have had 2 caps fitted at the dental college in Trivandrum with no problems. It is also very cheap - well I expect anywhere is cheap compaired to the UK....

Try John Cherians in Trivandrum which was recommended to us By an ex pat and used by many british people his e-mail is john_suma@hotmail.com Tel no Trivandrum 2351375.

My wife and I had crowns done last year for around 50 GBP each.

Hope this helps

I'd avoid the UDS for dental work due to the higher prices they charge. We've had work done by Dr.Gins Paul in Trivandrum. Dental Designs, Kuravankonam Jn, Kowdiar. Phone (0) 0471-2720740 or mobile 94470 72074. Scale n Polish is about £5 and white double crown about £40. We go when every time we visit Kovalam and can highly recommend him. He does teeth whitening also

I have been using the Apollo dentist centre in Trivandrum for the last four years. They have four different dentists which specialise in their own specialist field ie crowns, dentures, root canals etc. Tel: 0471 2720666

I had teeth whitening and a new crown on my fron tooth this year, the whitening was around £45. and the crown about £ 50. The year before I had a root canal and white porcelain crown, three white fillings and a scale and polish and the lot came to around £80. My mother had new dentures which cost around £60. Several of our guests have gone there and they have been charged similar prices and have all been happy with the treatment.

The dental practice is very clean and sterile and the dentists wear hygenic gloves and masks etc, talk through everything they are going to do and why they think it needs doing. I have no hesitation in recommending them.

We also used John Cherian. He was a fantastic dentist and a very nice man. I only paid £38 for a crown and clean and polish when I went in Dec 2006. When we were out there all the tour reps were told by the companies they worked for to go to him. He was highly recommended to us.
