Bangkok International Dental Center
A favorite of Thai and regional expats, Bangkok International Dental Center (BIDC) and its Smile Signature dental clinics jointly provide more than 60 treatment rooms, with a team of more than 50 dentists and a staff of more than 100. Parent company Dental Corporation, Ltd. is one of the largest private dental network groups in Thailand. Due to favorable pricing and extensive international patient services, hundreds of expats living in Thailand and throughout the region call BIDC their dental home away from home.
Many BIDC dentists have graduated from universities in the UK, the Americas, Australia, and continue their training through courses conducted at BIDC clinics and at other institutions.
The main BIDC headquarters is a 48,000-square-foot (4,500-square-meter) complex consisting of a seven-story dental clinic, a 30-room hotel, a bank, a restaurant, and a coffee shop. The clinic has its own on-site laboratory specializing in dental implants. BIDC was the first center in Thailand to offer the SLActive Straumann Dental Implant System, as well as the Bone Level Straumann Dental Implant System. BIDC’s team of implantologists boast one of the highest dental implant success rates in the country.
BIDC provides many amenities for its patients, including free high-speed Internet terminals and cable television, as well as private conference and consultation rooms. BIDC also offers special corporate rates for guests at selected hotels near its clinics.
In 2012, BIDC was awarded accreditation by the US-based Joint Commission International Ambulatory Care division, one of the few dental clinics in Asia currently JCI-accredited. JCI awarded re-accreditation to BIDC in 2015.
BIDC is also the recipient of the prestigious Prime Minister's Export Award Best Service Provider for Hospital/Clinics, the first dental clinic to be so honored. The dental center has also won other numerous private and governmental awards as an outstanding international dental service provider.
