Healthcare In Bali??Greetings to All,
I'm heading up to Bali and surrounding areas in a month for probably two months. As I've reached the nice age of 30 my body is in need of a tune-up. I was wondering if anyone has a good recomendation for a reputable foreign or local dentist. I would like to get my teath cleaned, examined and perhaps work done if necessary which is unfortunately usually necessary.
I am also wondering if anyone could advise or recomend a good body worker/s. I've heard there its lots of massage available in Indo and SEA, I'm looking for practicioners that do deep tissue/chiroprcatic and might be willing to work on me for multiple session.
Thanks for any reply, here's to happy health and living.

1I would definitely suggest Dr Indra Guizot in Den Pasar, I was very satisfied with the implants (9) which he inserted and the costs of which were US700,- per implant which included titanium crowns. He is however the most expensive dentist in Bali but also the best and has his own Dental Labs and workshop which are both very well equipped. I would personally not recommend any others having had some terrible experiences in previous years.

3Dokter Gigi Ibu Mariani in Denpasar is who you're after if it's just a check up/scrub you want. Indra Guizot is more of an implant/reconstruction guy who overcharges.

4Sorry Number 3 (Sack Monk), I have to totally disagree with you about Indra Guizot, of course he does implants but having worked as the number 1 dentist for the military for many years, studied and practised dental medicine in both France and Switzerland, has an excellent dental workshop using the latest technology, only the best graduates of dental medicine assist him in his very large, well equipped, dental surgery, I would say, he is an excellent all round dentist. As for the overcharging bit, I would think it's a much better idea to go for nothing but the best in Bali and the price difference is not so much. Of course Mariani is probably also a good dentist, but, my experiences with dentists in Bali, until I was advised to approach Indra Guizot, were a nightmare. I didn't try Mariani.
By the way, an implant costs approx Euro2500,- here in Germany and to date there are no offers of titanium crowns as this technology is too complicated. Indra Guizot has been using this method for many years with incredible success. I visit his surgery for check ups 2 times per year and also have a clean up at a cost of US $ 20,- per visit, the same in Germany costs approx Euro 110,- and waiting times are negligible.

6Well, Indra removed my wife's tooth but managed to put the needle in exactly the wrong place and she started to have convulsions and her heart rate and lood pressure skyrocketed to the point where medical help was needed. Scary Stuff!
But, anyone can make mistakes.
I fortunately never needed dental work in Bali, but had every skin complaint known to medical science which is where Dr Elias Sukardi on Jalan Hasanuddin proved a miracle worker.

7Indra Guizot is a Dentist/Implantologist held in high esteem both by my husband and I and dozens of other Australian friends who have had dental work performed by him and his team of professional technicians.
For 35 years I have had false teeth and trusted Dr Guizot and his team of staff to fit 7 upper implants, 7 crowns and cantilever work.
As well I have had chronic pain in lower teeth for years that Australian dentists have not been able to fix.
This pain has all gone due to the excellent work performed :14 crowns and cantilever.
In Australia it costs approximately $4,000 for 1 implant and $1,000 for 1 crown. Dr Guizot charges a quarter of this price!!!!
Dr Guizot and his staff are professionals and treated me and everybody I know with the utmost care and attention.
This work began on the Saturday and completed the following Thursday as the equipment is high tech and the technical laboratories are in the same building.

10Hello, It is now end of October 2009 and just wondered how you got on in Bali having the implants done? I am thinking of going through after getting an estimate here of about 30,000.00 Australian dollars all up!!

I am hoping someone could recommend a basic / clean hotel or accomodation near Dr. Indra Guizot in Denpasar. I am a 30 something women travelling by myself so safety is key here. I would appreciate your thoughts.

12The "clinic" of Dr. Indra Guizot is recommendable
I was in Bali and had a very acute root issue.
Dr. Indra Guizot was recommended by our hotel.
It is not the European style of dentist, you would expect. But the infrastructure is modern (e.g. taking x-rays on computer displays, providing CDs with all x-rays) and I was handled very professionally by Kadek Suartini. Dr. Guizot himself is a salesman and I suppose, he has done no surgery in the last years. But his personnel are competent and very friendly. And even after three months, everything is fine after the root canal treatment.

13So Indra Guizot sounds like the person to see for extensive dental work. I will email the clinic. I'm booked to go to Bali in March and am just researching the dental thing now in readiness. Does anyone know of any good dental technitions in Seminyak or close to there as that's where I'm staying.
Also, those of you that got work done at Guizot's clinic, can you advise modestly priced accommodation close by (in case there are no clinics in Seminyak).
Thanks for the information so far.
