Before you read this review of the best dentist in Vietnam, I want you to know that this post is in no way sponsored. I paid full price for my dental treatment, and do not receive any commissions on referred customers (though I wish I did!). This is a true and honest opinion of this wonderful DaNang Dentist.
I have had a lot of experience with dentists over the years. From getting fillings at the nightmarish school dentist as a child, having teeth pulled in the chair and under general anaesthetic, braces and wisdom teeth removal as a teenager, and numerous fillings and a root canal as an adult, let’s just say I know dentists.
How to Find the Best Dentist in Vietnam
We did a quick Google search for Dentist Danang, and then read the number of positive reviews that this guy had. He has pictures of his international customers on his website which is clear and well set out. The prices are there to peruse. It is all transparent. And, he is in Da Nang, Vietnam which was right next to where we were staying in Hoi An.
We spent over 2 weeks in Hoi An and we found the best things to do. It is such a beautiful and atmospheric little city. Then we moved to DaNang, and loved it even more. There is heaps to do there, and the beach is so vibrant and absolutely beautiful.
The Best Dentist in Vietnam is….
Dr Bao of Bao International Dental Clinic
Why Dr Bao?
So why choose Dr Bao for your dental needs when you are in Vietnam?
From the moment we had first contact with Dr Bao and his friendly team, we were treated like rockstars. They are so super friendly and helpful and were able to accommodate us with short notice.
From the superior cleanliness and supreme hygiene standards to the state of the art equipment, Dr Bao and his team are absolute professionals. I always felt completely safe and at ease in their clinic. They have the latest technology, and even their Xray techniques were better than what I have experienced at home in Australia.
Most importantly, they didn’t try to rip us off. I have been to dentists in Australia who have advised me to get a root canal, where a filling will do just as well. Or who do unnecessary Xrays, and schedule numerous appointments. You are in the palm of their gloved hand. Dr Bao could have told us we needed any number of things, but he didn’t.
He simply showed us what was needed, gave us options, and then we proceeded. It was a great experience
Getting fillings and a crown is no walk in the park for me with sensitive teeth. Dr Bao took care of that with ample anaesthetic. Anytime I needed a top-up, he was happy to add more.
My teeth whitening experience caused some sensitivity, but Dr Bao used a de-sensitivity gel on my teeth that relieved this perfectly.
For a pain-free and empathetic dental experience, go and see Dr Bao.
This is where it gets even better. The cost of treatment in Dr Bao’s Clinic is so cheap compared to Australia! My husband and I got long overdue treatments for a tiny fraction of the cost of dental work in Australia. In fact, dental Vietnam prices were as cheap as $500. And for that we received over $2000 worth of treatments!

With only a day’s notice, Dr Bao was able to fit us in quickly and conveniently for a consultation, and we could get all our work done over the next 3 days before our flight out. Our initial appointments were set up over email – Contact@drbao-clinic.com
Getting appointments at the dentist in Australia is usually a painful experience when it comes to organising times and finding babysitters. But here in DaNang, it was just so easy.
Our kids were able to wait in the waiting room while we had our initial consultations. It was comfortable, they had a water cooler and free wifi which easily kept them entertained! Dr Bao has a young child himself, so he understands the needs of parents.
Credit Card Facilities
Paying with a credit card always makes things easier and the facilities here were great.
There is a huge world map on the waiting room wall, and many pictures around of the international patients Dr Bao has treated. They all have big smiles on their faces! And by reading the reviews on Google it is clear that Dr Bao has earned himself an extremely good international reputation. 5 out of 5 stars consistently on Google. See the reviews here.
Opening Times for the Best Dentist in Vietnam
Dr Bao’s International Dental Clinic is open from 8 am to 6 pm every day except Monday. And he will always find a way to accommodate you and your needs.
We only had a few days to do a fair bit of time-consuming work, and we have 4 kids too. So in between treatments, with my husband and I tag-teaming each other to babysit, Dr Bao fitted us in super conveniently over the next 3 days before our flight to Kuala Lumpur.
Our Dental Story
My husband needed a cap on his front tooth to cover up a chip that had been there for over 5 years. He had always put off fixing it because of the cost in Australia, over $500.
I needed a crown, 2 fillings, and I opted to get in-chair laser whitening treatment too, as it was a great opportunity to do it at a discount price.
All of this treatment had needed doing for a while now. It was such a relief to finally be able to afford it!
Our smiles are so much nicer now!
