One of the hardest things about living abroad is finding health care professionals that you actually like. Doctors, dentists, hairdressers, facialists, whatever.
There are always abundant lists of “English Speaking Doctors” for you to choose from, but you never really know if they’re any good or not until you make an appointment. And then you usually find out that “English Speaking” was used very loosely, or that they are on the verge of death and can barely stay awake for your appointment, or their equipment is so old that you’ve never personally seen it in your lifetime except on old black and white movies, or they’re kind of a “groper” looking to cop a feel at any opportunity – all of which have happened to me. Every time you move you end up going through dozens of health care professionals before you finally find the one that’s right for you. And then, naturally, you move again.
Well, folks, 2 months before we’re about to leave KL I have found the perfect dentist. So perfect, in fact, that I’m considering coming back to KL from Bangkok next year to have him clean my teeth again. Basically it was the best dental appointment I’ve ever had – quick, efficient, professional, courteous, and painless. Seriously, I’ve never had a painless dentist appointment. Ever. But this was it. He used that fancy ultrasound thing to perform the cleaning and he was done in about 20 minutes.
I had such a positive experience there that I think, I’m not sure, but I think, I may have actually had fun at the dentist. So, if you happen to be living in KL, I would like to suggest that you find your way out to Bangsar Shopping Center and your pearly whites painlessly cleaned by Dr. Eugene.
