Hi! I've got mild discomfort and my back tooth aches a little. The thing is I'm beyond afraid of Korean dentists. My previous dentist threatened to break my arm if I didn't stay still. My mouth wasn't numbed properly so it was really sore. What should I do?

I suppose the smart ass comment is "emigrate", but failing that, ask around your friends for a dentist with at least basic patient management skills.

As Gordon said, ask around, or it that fails, you can also try searching on Google using search terms such as:

expat forum south korea dentist

south korea dentist recommend

or replace south korea with your actual location, e.g:

seoul dentist recommend

etc.

Best of luck with your search :clover: !!
