Type 1 or Type 2 Diabetic? I'm Type 2. I use Metformina 1000mg every day. Every pharmacy has them. No script needed.

no idea on the diabetics, but the DR has many very competent dentist's
We also have incompetent dentists.
Get some recommendations of names from posters here.
What area are you looking ?
Sosua had a female dentist that got good reviews, Wendy something or other as best I can recall.
Others here will know her name.

Thank you for the info My wife and child are there right now. My Child was to get braces here in Canada end of February But with covid and all the trouble to fly now i think it is better they just stay there for now so i thought maybe i would get her braces done down there instead of Canada. It cost 6500 can dollars here i was just wondering what it would cost there.

It’s far cheaper to do them here, but only if she will be staying here most of the time for follow up visits and adjustments. If she will return and be there in Canada most of her time, best to do them there to keep up with the follow ups.

Quality is the same on both sides nowadays...

Installing the railroad tracks is one thing ..then the constantly adjusting them to manipulate them to shift appropriately is the money shot average 12-18 months

Indeed we do.
Back in 2015 I had a root canal done here in Santiago without any insurance at the time and one filling afterwards.
Very clean and very professional.
Price for the filling: RD$ 800
Price for the root canal: RD$12,000
To this day, zero problems with either tooth.
