Dr. Panachai Karnkorkul, DDS
Prosthodontist, Phuket Dentist


There is much more to creating beautiful, natural smiles than just fixing and correcting problems with the teeth - that is something any trained dentist can perform, and it is merely part of the equation. The other essential part is attributed to the ability to integrate Artistic flair with innovation in Science. The perfect smile is not only functional, but also aesthetically pleasing, natural-looking, and long lasting. To achieve this, the Cosmetic Dentist must possess qualities similar to those of an Artist: the production of each fine work of art requires creativity, imagination, intricacy, and above all, a good hand and eye. Each smile is, therefore, a masterpiece that truly belongs to you.
Celebrating 32 Years of Excellence
Phuket dentist Dr. Panachai Karnkorkul has been one of Thailand's leading cosmetic expert for over 3 decades. He left his position as the Head of Prosthodontic Department at the Prince of Songkhla University in 1989 to open Dental Care Clinic in Phuket a year later. Until now he has served more than 4500 local and international patients from around the world, with the majority from Australia, New Zealand, Europe, USA and the Middle East, who fly in for our treatment while they treat themselves to a relaxing beach holiday!

Dr. Panachai is no less an Artist than he is a Dentist. Out of the office, he finds time to pursue his personal interests and hobbies such as Woodworking, Golfing, Gardening, Chinese Tea-tasting, and collecting rare plants.
