kkh dentist

Just wanted to say we came across a dentist half way up the KKH!! No joke- she was really nice and had trained in the UK, if memory serves me right.
But, having a medical background, I would just like to reiterate that you should always follow common sense no matter where your chosen clinic is. We always look at the sterilising equipment and the cleanliness of the clinic, whether it's Europe, Asia or where- ever.
Good luck with your trip and treatment!
Ps We used a great dentist in Bangkok- Siam Plaza

Anyone know anything of dentists in Morocco? I need something done over and above what's free on the UK National Health. I'm just hoping it might be cheaper. Cheers.

Wow! For the price of an implant in the U.S. you could afford to buy a pane ticket, come to Korea, stay in a hotel for the 3 months and still have money left over. Two implants U.S. 10 grand. Korea-2.2. Hotel 400 a month. Plane ticket 900. Food 100 a month. Quality, excellent. I just had the work done and my dentist is great. The work that I have had done would have been more than 30 grand in the states and I have paid 5 here. Big plus. Korea is a kindly, gentle country except for the traffic. Lots to see, good food, happy people.

goa

I had work done in Goa, I was there on an Enfield for 3 months so figured why not. He was British trained, recommended by other expats and very good. The 'All Smiles' clinic. Clean and he was very proud of all his new equipment from the states and Germany. I had implants and whitening costing me less than $600, it would have been 10 times that in the UK! From prep to fitting took 4 days!! The chilled out Goan beachscene is good, nightlife also.
Get yourself an Enfield Bullet and potter about the place too!!

Have fun!

Exactly my point. That is the way to do it. Geoff is obviously a sensible chap.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
