Wong & Sim Dental Surgery

110-02-26 Persiaran Bayan Indah, 11900
Rating from 12 Reviews This was all exceptionally good valueAdele, UK, 16 Feb 17

My husband had a broken tooth and as we still have 4 weeks left in Penang we decided it was better not to wait. Whilst in the surgery the dentist Dr Brenda Sim also mentioned another cracked tooth. If this was in the UK I'd have thought it was just a way to get more money, but as it happens my husband was aware of it. She offered to fix that and also asked if he wanted his teeth cleaned. As he was due a visit to the hygienist in any case he just said yes. This was all exceptionally good value and the price substantially below what we expected and what we would have paid back home We checked out what dentists were available locally (turns out there's lots) but we decided to look at 2 in Pulau Tikus as it's close to where we're staying. We originally went to Penang Dental but then decided on Wong & Sim. We'd read reviews and to be fair both had very good reviews. But Wong and Sim not only were able to see my husband that day but we were very impressed with the surgery itself - very new and it looked like it had all the very latest equipment. Dr Sim was a very friendly, approachable but professional and clearly highly skilled dentist. She was assisted ably by 2 other members of staff who were equally friendly. Both me and my husband were very glad with our choice, and especially so when contacted afterwards to make sure everything was ok. If I was living here Dr Sim would be my dentist and I'd be going there for the cosmetic treatment I want too. Wish she was my local dentist.
