More about Cambodia

The kind of culture a country follows affects the tourist’s experience a lot. Highlights of Cambodia that usually intrigue an outsider are:

  • U.S. Dollars
  • Cambodian riel

Cambodia offers ease of buying products and services. As, apart from the Cambodian riel, which is their primary currency, U.S. Dollars are accepted as the unofficial second currency.

Most stores accept USD; others may help you exchange them for Cambodian riel in the market itself, for an exchange rate a little higher than the ongoing forex exchange rate.

For dental work in Cambodia you can pay via Cash, visa-card ,master-card or bank transfers (through local banks).

Cambodia has a debatable reputation when it comes to medical practices and their quality. This is because:

  • Many people receive treatment from traditional practitioners instead of registered professionals working at accredited hospitals and return unhappy.

To avoid this silly blunder, run a quick research on the background of the Institute or the doctor you are going to avail services from.

  • You should consider the ones mentioned in this article as we have already done the research from our end.

For some, the language may also be an issue, as Khmer is widely used, and knowledge of the English language is weak. Still, the major reasons leading to this state of confusion are mentioned below:

Cambodian History:

Cambodia has a history of violence, and it was only in the second half of the 20th century that it earned independence from France.

Before that, there was strict and strange conduct by previous rulers such as Pol Pot, who left Cambodia with 1.5 million lesser people in the country. The targeted people in this mass killing act were intellectuals, well-read, educated people.

This situation arrived as the ruler was an extreme socialist. He believed that the entire population of Cambodia should practice peasantry. Anything and anyone close to modern advances was dealt with utter harshness- destructed or killed.

This affected the volume of educated people in the country, and the developing nation is thus thought to lack professionalism.

Present day Cambodia:

Even after such harsh history, Cambodia surprises the world, as is the true nature of developing nations. Youngsters work hard to receive their education and training in medicine from the national as well as international institutes.

This has been happening at a fascinating speed, and it looks as if people are determined to make up for the devastation done during the Pol Pot days.

The registered hospitals offer quality treatment at very low costs.

Choosing Cambodia as a professional or as a person who wishes to resolve dental health issues, both are a great idea as this location is a perfect host for either kind of guests.

Dentist’s point of view:

The toothbrush is a luxury that not many have used in Cambodia. Years of war are again to be blamed for this lifestyle practice. For a dentist who wishes to practice and train himself on diverse dental problems, this is the place to do so.

About 84.9% of the three years old surveyed in Cambodia had at least one decayed tooth. Suggesting, the country undoubtedly has a thick volume of dental patients.

The patient’s benefit:

As the country has a number of dental patients, the doctors here have a vigorous practice on different dental conditions.

For an international patient, getting dental work in Cambodia is a smart choice. As, not only are they well-educated, but also heavily trained dentists. And not to mention, they offer dental treatments at a very low cost.
