Neil's Amazing Korean Adventure: Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Posted on Thu, Apr 26, 2018 @ 12:00 PM

Contrary to getting wisdom teeth taken out in the U.S., things are done a little differently in Korea. For example, I only have one wisdom tooth left in my mouth because I’ve had three previously removed over the course of several months. I have never had to be put under for any of the procedures. Each only took between 5 - 10 minutes, and I only needed to have stitches one time. My situation sounds odd, doesn’t it? Usually, we are used to having them out in one go, but I think that the process I went through is much better than conventional procedures in America.

Tips For Visiting The Optometrist, Dentist, and Hair Stylist in Korea

For medical procedures, many foreigners come to Korea from all over the world because of the reasonable prices and high quality. I remember while I was living in America, I hated going to the dentist and eye doctor because of how much money I would spend for my medical procedures. Even with insurance, I’d pay at least $80-$100 for each visit. Luckily here in Korea, the prices are not astronomical. Here are some tips to help you save money while you are living and teaching in Korea.

A Teacher's Surprising Visit to the Dentist

Posted on Tue, Jan 28, 2014 @ 01:00 PM

If you live in Korea long enough, at some point you just might need to go to the dentist. For some of us, it could be for a medical reason and for others it could be something as simple as a teeth cleaning or whitening. I've been to the dentist three times here in Korea. The first was for a regular check up to see if I had any cavities, and yes, I did. *Sadface* The second visit was for a teeth cleaning and the last time was because of a more unfortunate reason. The crown to my root canal came off, pulling off some extra parts that needed to be fixed.
