We have just returned from Dalyan and my boyfriend visited Dr Ersan from a recommendation on here (I just happened across the post a few days before we went) as he had been suffering on and off with toothache the week before we went. The dentist here had failed to get to the bottom of it - giving him antibiotics that didn't make any difference.
We emailed Dr Ersan and made an appointment from the UK - not really sure what to expect. (email@example.com)
Dr Ersan ended up doing an xray, root canal (without needing an anaesthetic and fixing the botched root canal by the UK dentist who had then filled the tooth with the filling touching the nerve - which was causing the pain) filling, 2 crowns and bridge. All for a quarter of the price he would have paid in the UK.
I understand that the dentist in Ortaca might have been cheaper but Dr Ersan was lovely, very convenient and very, very professional - so the few visits didn't interupt our holiday. He even picked us up in his car on Sunday evening to fit the crowns before we headed off into town for claypot kebap.......
Some have said it is inadvisable to get this sort of thing done abroad with a foreign dentist but my boyfriend is extremely pleased with the results. He couldn't have afforded to get this done in the UK and would probably have got the tooth removed instead. By the way his UK NHS/'budget dentist was Polish.
It was our first time in Dalyan and we would would love to go back. And to visit Dr Ersan as well - if not for treatment then definitely to say hello.
