    I had one recently and I believe i paid around 20,000RD. The doctor and office were REALLY professional. I was impressed. It was in Santiago.

    I have had two root canals with new crowns for each tooth in this past year. Both done by our family's local dentist in Santo Domingo. Each one cost 200$US. Back in new england the estimates were in the thousands $US for the same work.

    I went to Cibao Dental Spa today and they quoted me $320.usd for a root canal. I would recommend them to anyone,first class all the way. I was quoted for a ton of work for myself and my girlfriend if anyone is curious about the prices of other work. They spent two hours examining me and three doctors consulted with me including a periodontist,dentist and oral surgeon for $50.usd money very well spent.

    Cibao is a bit more costly than others but their equipment, service and expertise are excellent

    Worth it in many cases.

    I know personally two friends who have done root canal here in various towns and two or three different dentists and for a few teeth. It turned out not so good, one of them went back to Europe and had to redo some of them as it was really badly done...

    It is not just the work but the material they use, they are some quality Swiss made, expensive stuff and then cheap Chinese or even Pakistani pins that they can drill into your jaw bones ... !!!?

    Cheap here but be careful and be aware.... !

    I agree there are some that will not do a good job or use good materials however I can say that although yes as William said you might pay more in Santiago, Cibao there are some excellent places. The job I had done (I had one root canal years ago in the states) was excellent.
