Hussein Fawaz, May 2019
Horrible service. Very high prices, especially if they know that you are insured. They don’t speak english, you wait a lot. Agreed to pay 600 TL, but got an invoice with 1180 TL. They also promised to send the invoice and the report translated to english so i can claim the amount from the insurance company, but they didn’t.

I got terrible treatment at dentisty.
During my stay in turkey, I needed root canal treatment and new crown. The same day set the crown, feel so painful.
back to my country, I figured out that root canal treatment was not done properly..... I remember that she didn’t take x-ray before set the crown! In the end, not only treatment but I had to make new crown again... DON’T WAIST MONEY AND TIME here!
