I still am seeing this dentist in Schwabing (the less fancy part near Elisabethplatz), he's done a lot of work on my mouth:

 

Dr. Jens Kober

Elisabethstr. 30

80796 München

Telefon: (089) 2719385

 

Call and ask for prices, he seemed to be reasonable to me. I'm on public health insurance, and did not have to pay extra for white plastic fillings.

The receptionist speaks enough English to communicate, and he speaks it well.

Thank you very much Metall! I called to his office and he is booked for quite a long time... I would have to go from Munich by then (in 2 weeks). I don't know if I can find anybody good here with this time restriction but I will try.

 

I am from Belarus and I came to Munich mostly for a better dentist. I have atypical trigeminal neuralgia (painfull thing) which might be aggrevated by my bad bite, but before doing anything I need to get some not very simple dental fillings done. 

 

I am not sure if the dentist I was going here in Munich was doing a good job. It seems like he is in a hurry when doing it. After he did some work, one tooth hurts. Maybe as a result of his speed or not... But I am also searching for another dentist who would not be in such a rush. Not sure if that's possible in such a short time...

 

Could someone suggest another dentist?

 

Did anyone go to Dr Seehofer? (I made an appointment next week)

I can say the same for this practice. It is a husband/wife team and they are both incredibly nice and gentle and excellent. Will also discuss cost and willing to work out payment plans if necessary. Just ask for what you need.

Thank you very much Fraufruit!

Dr. Dan Herschbach didn't want to work on my teeth without previously consulting specialist about occlusion specialist who is booked until January. Although he seemed like a very knowledgeably doctor and a nice person.

 

I have also went to Dr. Weller. He's also very nice person. He had grinded down a bit one of my filllings and thus improved occlusion a bit. But he did not want to do my tooth because it might be close to the nerve and if caries would get to the nerve I could need further treatment and it's better if only one doctor does it in Belarus.

 

The doctor I'm going to now gave a brilliant consultation. He is very knowledgeably. I can also see that he is very skillful. But he just did a lot of work too fast. in comparison, I was suggested at Fachpraxis to have one complicated filling done during 2 hours under the microscope. But this doctor did the similar filling and two more not easy ones in just 1,5 hours. I would not disclose the name of the doctor yeat because maybe the pain on the tooth he did will go away. Also only he and Dr. Weller saw where my tooth had chipped also because I explained better where to look. I have another appointment tomorrow with this doctor. Very scared and at a loss. Going to a dentist after first tooth he did hurts... and it seems like he was doing it too fast... even if he seems in general rather skillful... I am not sure if it's wise...

I went to Dr Marinescu here last year.

 

Nice guy. He wanted to do loads of stuff, but explained what was highest priority and gave a full breakdown of costs and only did what i asked.

Thank you very much Elgin Ed!

They already finished working today, but it seems like he is booked until 11 of November... I will not be here already...

I might have to go to that dreaded appointment tomorrow.  So scared... and not for the pain but for the result...

 

I am very grateful to those who suggested someone already and maybe it really is impossible to find someone before I leave Munich...

 

But maybe someone knows someone else or have been to Dr. Seehofer or heard something about him?

While I haven't been to him, if you google his name, you can fine several sites with reviews and use your translating service of choice:

http://www.jameda.de/muenchen-lehel/zahnaerzte/aesthetische-zahnmedizin/dr-peter-seehofer/uebersicht/80376311_1/

http://www.docinsider.de/zahnarzt/peter-seehofer

 

If you are this scared about returning to your previous dentist, then I would recommend you cancel and see this new doctor.  Or go to the appointment tomorrow and discuss your issues with the treatment you received before proceeding.  Since I don't know what your dental issues are, it is possible that treatment may continue past when you leave and you'll be up the creek in any case.  Best of luck!

My personal recommendation would be dr. Gerhard Kornexl in the Freimann area.  I feel he has done a great job on my teeth without recommending unnecessary treatment plans (the thing dentists do which I really hate the most).  I just set a record in my family for having kept all my teeth the longest  :)

Again, this is just my personal recommendation.  I've moved away from the area but will continue to go back to Dr. Kornexl for future dental care.  Also he speaks very good English.

 I share my good experiences because is SO helpful to read all of yours. 

 

I went to 

Praxis Dr. med. dent. Isabel Selmair

Clemensstraße 21a

80803 Munich-Schwabing

Tel.: 089 3006283

 

And she takes public insurance, although my treatment was not covered. She speaks perfect english (I think she studied in San Diego). She is honest and even though I wasn't particularly interested in knowing everything about my teeth she still explained everything and showed me what happened and how the fixing turn out. 

 

So, I would recommend her. She, and the staff are also very very very nice and that is not a quality to oversee, specially here in Germany. 

 

Ah, and on my way out they told me they don't take credit card, so, just a heads up. Because there aren't signs or anything.

Hi, for years our Family (over 12) has Visited Dr. Ralph McKinley Wood (dr-wood.com). He's

an American (grad. from Harvard med. School). His practice is in the Theatinerstrasse, easily accessible from all directions. I haven't seen him personally for a few years (out of the Country), but it's time. He's definitely worth Consulting.

I had a couple visits to Dr Tomas Hoischen, next to Marienplatz, I can recommend him if anyone is searching for a dentist. My boss recommended him, he has been going with his family for several years.

He speaks perfect English and is very competent and professional. Their prices were standard, 90-95 euros for a cleaning I think. Routine dental checkup was either paid by the insurance or complementary.

The only thing I gotta say is that while he speaks perfect English, his assistant (who performed the cleaning) did not at all. But anyway she only needs to tell you to open more your mouth and stop complaining, German is good for that :P

My experience at Dr. Selmair's dental clinic was quite good. An appointment was quickly arranged as I had had an old gold crown finally come out. I saved the crown, hoping it could either be put back in place, or I could cash it in at one of downtown jewelry shops.

I of course should mention that the entire process was conducted in English - the appointment fixing, the x-rays and history, and the final treatment with the doctor. All easy-going and as pleasant as the dentist can be!


The office and treatment rooms were all light and airy and the location, just a quick walk from the Münchner Freiheit U-bahn, was very convenient. There was even some street parking the one time that I used the car. 

 

During the preliminary exam, I was schooled in the advantages of an electric toothbrush and became convinced it was a good idea. I have been using the electric toothbrush every since and can really feel and see the difference.

We worked within the limits of my insurance plan and everything was paid for by my insurance company.


Highly recommended. And the best part was that I had no cavities!

@MunichNOW I ended up going to Dr. Selmair after reading your reviews and a few others great reviews about her and seeing her score on Jameda.

 

Another dentist diagnosed me with a gum infection but did not recommend anything helpful. Instead he was more interested in finding cavities so I went for a second opinion at Dr. Selmair's office.

 

Her staff was incredibly friendly, spoke with me in English (since my German is not very good), and recommended me an expensive electric toothbrush as well. I was a little iffy about the toothbrush due to the price but ended up getting it since I wanted to resolve the infection. Low and behold the gum infection was gone after 2 weeks with using this brush.

 

I'd highly recommend her as well.

Could you please tell which toothbrush she recommended?

 

I have gum disease and keep mine under control with a Braun toothbrush and a Philips Sonicare water pistol thingy.
