I would definitely also recommend Franz X. Dandl. I've been to him plenty of times after a few bad experiences with other dentists here. I've got a big fear of dentists and I'd have to say this guy has certainly made the experience a lot easier.

 

Just check first when you call as to what insurance he accepts.

A friend of mine went to a dentist in Freising when she moved there, after complaining about headaches - the dentist said her lower jaw was malformed and that she needed corrective treatment. That would have been EXTEMELY painful and would have meant a course of treatment over months. O yeah he trashed 2 of her teeth in a bout of dentist madness to begin. She was extremely depressed about the whole thing.

 

Then she went to another dentist, who laughed at the jaw-diagnosis and said there was absolutely nowt wrong with it. Then he spent 2 hrs correcting the rubbish the other guy had done. She walked home and all the pain was gone.

 

A happy end. How nice.

 

The moral: Always get a second opinion.

I once knew someone who's father was a dentist. I asked her how much dental work was actually strictly necessary. Turns out that unless it's for aesthetic reasons a visit to the dentist is only needed if you are in pain. Ok, so my teeth aren't shiney white, but I couldn't really care less about that frankly.

Dunno about that Jamal. I did not go for 12 years or so, and even ignored the pain of 3 wisdom teeth basically dissolving into nothing over that time. Eventually went to a dentist here, shitting myself of course, to get the pain sorted. Whilst examining me, he discoverd that I am a freak of anture with a 3rd set of canine teeth growing. One of them is impacting another tooth (out of sight in the gums somewhere) and if I don't get it yanked, then I could be in some serious pain down the line. Surely sometime preventative dental work is needed? Why wait for the pain? Having said that, I WILL wait for the pain. I hate dentists, and ours is German, so I instinctively dislike and distrust him even more. What on earth possesses somebody to become a dentist? Surely you have to be a bit twisted to WANT to dig about in someones mouth with medievel metal objects.

I can recommend...

 

Dr Weller

Lazerettstrasse 2,

Tel.: 089 129 0088

 

...corner of nymphenburgerstrasse (u1, mailingerstasse). He speaks english and so do some of his staff. You just have to make the effort to speak german first and as soon as he realsises you are english he will speak in english if you want him to. Also he is very good and friendly.

 

I hate, no detest! the dentist and only go when Im in pain and paracetamol arent working, I was soooooo nervous about going, was shaking etc, basically I was in bits and almost in tears... well I walked out of there with my fear of dentists gone... well as long as I keep going to him its gone!

 

Also at the time I was not insured for dental work and he charged me a very low price and also didnt charge me for everything which I thought was very very nice of him!

Hija,

 

when visiting a dentist does one also have to pay the 15 Euro same as a visit to the doc?

It's 10 Euro and you have to pay them if the doctor does something with your teeth. If you go there for an anual check you don't have to pay.

Dr Yachkaki

Opposite the Tengelmann and above the Sonnenstudio.

I would have thought better to use a non-english speaking dentist?

 

That way you don't know what the sadistic bugger is gonna do next.

 

Also I cannot see you having much of a conversation anyway once he has got you pinned to a chair with 3kilos of sharp equipment jammed in your gob.

Dentists are a bit foggy on health insurance - some policies cover it, some don't - I think most cover it when it starts to get a bit serious...

From 2005, it will be standard that everyone will need 2 insurances, one for the doctors and one for the dentists. So that means that your monthly salary will go down even further !

Hiya

now you must of course all realise that I have to post on this topic! :D

My dentist Ulrich Kurze is *fabulous* and his new RTL series "Alles ist möglich" starts on September 21st at 9:15pm.

And all the staff speak English and you can watch films on DVD while he drills and fills. If you want to of course.

I don't know if he accepts state-insured people though, as I've got private health insurance but call them and ask.

Hiya chewy,

have you got a E128 or a *new* student E111 or are you under a different scheme (i.e. state-insurance supported by your employer)?

You're on placement, right?

The rules have changed since August 1st 2004 and so this info will help me find a better answer.

Katrina

PS Here's some info to start you off.

I do actually have an E128 (it was a freebie they kicked me out the country with!). I dont have an E111. I'm insured by BKK SKF over here. I went to the doctors 2 weeks ago and there wasnt a problem, is howed them my insurance paper work. Im on placement, although for most reasons germany doesnt see me as a student as i earn too much. but i have a practikant contract!

One more dentist recommendation Dr. Kaefer on Destouchesstr 34 near Bonnerplatz. I had mega pain last week, called my regular dentist but he was on vacation so I went to this guy who a colleague recommended. They saw me right away(that same day). I ended up having a root canal - he's speaks fabulous English and he's good looking to boot. He explained everything clearly.

 

The number is 089 30 9579.
