So, I was back in Johor Bahru last March 4 for part 2 of the root canal treatment.
This time, it was a much more fun trip because I was with Chris, Ian, MkSurf8 and of course, Pg Boy.
When they found out that I was going back to JB, Chris and MkSurf8 asked if they could go. Of course, I said yes. They wanted to go look for a good place for lunch and a place for a massage (since everything in JB is much more affordable than here in SG). I, on the other hand, had to go for the second part of my rct.
Like the first part of the treatment, the second one was uneventful and it was done in under an hour.
Seriously, Dr. Wong is really good.
If you're in SG and you need to have a root canal treatment but you're worried about the hole it'll burn in your pocket, please do make the trip to JB and head over to the clinic of Dr. Wong. He's the best.
Below are his details:
Pakar Gigi Endodontik Wong
Wong Endodontics ( Dental) Specialist
No 14C, Jalan Harimau, Taman Century,
80250 Johor Bahru, Johor
Please Call 07 -3344991
Dr. Wong is an endodontist and he's one of the most popular ones in JB, according to Alan.
The cost for my RCT is RM900 (about $375). That includes the first consultation, two rct sessions, and a post-procedure consultation.
He will refer you to another clinic for the crowning. From what I've read, it may cost about RM600-650 (about $270).
The charge for the root canal procedure alone in SG is $1200-1500.
Such a huge difference, huh?!
However, you need to book an appointment by phone because Dr. Wong is always fully booked. I had to wait for a week before I got my schedule.
Alright, hope this helps.
