Medical tourism to Bangkok is a huge business, especially for dental work.
There's a reason it's so popular... the work is very good, done by doctors and dentists who have studied and practiced in the U.S., and is done for a fraction of the cost you pay in the U.S.
The condescention and ignorance of people who think every country but the U.S. is some backwater hellhole is mind boggling. Thailand is every bit as modern and advanced as the U.S.

THis year I had my teeth cleaned/polished for $8 in the Philippines, and two fillings for $8 each. Very clean and professional office, more modern equipment than my dentist here.
Got a crappy filling in Egypt for $3.75.
Had 5 fillings and a crown that lasted 10 years in Tijuana for $200 (but that was in 97)
Medicine costs next to nothing in foreign countries, many have better facilities and staff ratio than here. I would trust Thailand, Bangkok has world class hospitals. Singapore and Malaysia are also modernized countries.
