Updated December 2019
The following price list is available at simple request at the reception desk of Dental Hospital, now located at Onnuj Road in a brand new facility. I could not find a list with recent price updates on their website. We show a selection of procedures below, the list is quite comprehensive, and may be a good guide to estimate costs.
I reckon the prices quoted are not the cheapest in Thailand. Then again, quality of work and material, we assume, are well above average.
This list was last updated in December 2019. Compared with the data listed in 2013 and 2015, most prices have not increased up to 2018. The last 18 months there have been some price changes.
The value of the US Dollar vs. the Thai Baht has gone up and down, but the last few years (to the government's dismay) the Thai Baht has gained in value, and stands at about 30 baht for 1 US Dollar at the end of 2019. Theoretically, prices quoted in Thai Baht for imported goods should not be rising, since the baht is getting ever stronger.
We have indicated price increases compared to May 2018 below. If increased, we will also indicate the price as it was before.
Prices for medical procedures in general hospitals in Thailand, are forever rising, and lately also seem to be talked about in the English-language local press.
One final note : you may compare prices as listed with other dental facilities or hospitals. This is useful. Even more useful, if you are presented with expensive procedures, it to obtain a second opinion, not only regarding prices, but also whether an altogether less expensive treatment might suffice. In this regard, it it good to note that initial evaluation (and most dental X-rays) are rather inexpensive, so you do not wast money getting different opinions. All that said, we personally have relied for our treatments on Dental Hospital, with little regrets.
Remember, if you have one of the more expensive treatments, you may have to pay before the treatment has been concluded. So bring your cash or credit card with you from the first visit.
Remember, prices may always change without prior notice.

** : In practice, prices may vary depending on location, size, material.
In 2013, we had a lot of fillings.
On one occasion, 3 composite fillings costs me 9,600 baht, which is way higher than advertised prices. On another occasion, I was charged 6,400 baht for 4 composite fillings, which fits the prices listed and is exactly half of what I paid earlier per filling.
A filling I received at Bumrungrad Hospital costs me 2,400 baht. We suggest, you interpret the above prices as guidelines.
In any case, especially for substantial treatments, it is useful to ask for an estimate of the costs beforehand. .
***: Our experience : there can be additional cost such as "crown buildup" (2,000 baht), and prefabricated post and core (3,500 baht). We assume similar add-on costs also apply for the crowns with other material composition. Don't forget that the price of placing a crown does not include a prior root canal treatment (if necessary) and intraoral-periapical X-ray films. Just to sum it up : We paid a total all included for one crown (including root canals) of 41,100 baht end 2016.
****: At the time we received dental implants, which admittedly is a while ago (2014), we checked prices at major facilities in Bangkok (Bumrungrad, BNH Hospital, Samitivej) and found prices as reported by email to be very similar. Prices can be a few thousand baht more for dental implants if you need additional supporting treatments, such as bone grafts.
For those uninitiated, we found the procedure involved, much less dramatic and 'easy' than we anticipated.
Update Januari 2020 : We found some promotional rates at Bangkok Christian Hospital, where costs were 53,000 baht (material from Korea), 63,000 baht (Zimmer from U.S.A.) and 73,000 baht (Nobel from Sweden). Price does include implant and crown, but not additional materials (like bone graft) or CT etc.
