I wonder how the medical authorities are ignoring such horrendous things happening on the road side by these quack doctors. All this is due to the Government having failed to provide medical facility to the poor. In India where corruption is looming anything is possible.

Sir Winston Churchill said at the time of granting India independence:
“Power will go to rascals, rogues, freebooters … All leaders will be of low caliber & men of straw … They’ll have sweet tongues & silly hearts …
They will fight amongst themselves for power & the country will be lost in political squabbles … A day would come when even air & water will be taxed.” He wrote this 64 years ago.

Incredibly the leaders of India are working hard to prove him right till today.....

Last time I was at the dentist (3 weeks ago) I sat through a 2 hour extraction. I was at an expensive clinic too. After thous 2 hours of pure pain (3 vials of anesthetic helped a little) I'm not afraid of going to hell anymore... :x

I had all 10 of my top teeth pulled with only local anesthetic in 45 mins while awake and sitting in a "chair" I might add, then had dentures fitted instantly after and proceeded to have a dry socket in every whole in my gum after because I WAS a SMOKER, and I have to say, I didn't take any notice how comfortable the chair was or that I was even in one for that matter, so that rules out the need for a chair. And as for the way they pull teeth, eh, so it's on the side of the road, and there are flies, i'm sure alot of bar fights weren't sanitary when people get their teeth knocked out.

80 rupies is too much, I'm sure there is some other dentist just around the corner who is doing same thing for 60 rupies, and he was auto mechanics before he become dentist...

What do they use to perform an apicoectomy? A rusty old penknife and some needle and cotton from the sweatshop over the road? >:)

I suppose in such poor areas needs must, after all what dentists do aint rocket science, it's just fixing teeth (like repairing bicycles really)

If a bicycle mechanic can become a dentist, I am sure a car mechanic can become a heart surgeon as he too can fix valves....this happens only in India due to corrupt scoundrel politicians who are selling Mother India and their Swiss bank account balances are swelling....spread the words....let the whole World know.....Jai Ho.....

Hah, not much worse than the dentist i paid €150 euro for a few months ago. The tools are pretty much the same. The only "difference" i guess is the anesthesia, which barely works anyway.

The thing is your dentist will charge you a fortune for something that cost nothing to create. Like a dental implant. It's disturbing. The pricing is off the charts because they can and nobody is stopping them.

What we need to understand here is that they don't "repair" teeth, they add implants and pull teeth out. Considering the bad shape the teeth are already in on many of the customers, it's for the better. Also few in these poor countries care about how your teeth look to begin with. They have real concerns... like SURVIVING for the day.

The insurancecompamy is the biggest criminal. I pay $180 every month, and the first bills up to a max $500 are not payd by insurance company. Never knew the bandage for setting a broken arm by a student nurse costs $10, and the doctor confirming the arm is broken costs $300. just looking at it for 25 seconds, and humming.

I bet the Indian dentist can confirm my broken arm for 65 Ruppees. and put a bandage on for 5 Rupees

#26 My dentist even uses latex gloves, and has protective glasses and his face covered. We should give him a can of NO2, making his costumers happy.

OMG ..

Dentist must have nice teeth to inspire confidence, they have their own all F**ked up but still get customers?

Do they use the same syringe for all jobs?

Was the tooth extraction lady possessed by some kind of tooth demon?

Interesting...compared to our standards, appalling..but compared to no care at all for those poor people, probably not so bad, hopefully HIV, HepB and C rates are low there...
