Cool, Green and the best Coffee in the world
I've searched previous discussions and am wondering if Dra. Monica Sanjur is still praciticing in Boquete? If so, how difficult is it to get in on short notice?
About an hour ago a large portion of a molar broke off, along with the filling which fell out. I will try tomorrow, but the chances of getting in with a dentist here is slim. Unless it's a true emergency, the normal wait time is up to three weeks. We leave for Panama Tuesday.
Thank you Judy and Bonnie. I guess communication won't be too difficult for something like this regardless of language... open mouth and point at the tooth with a hole.
I got her address from an older discussion on the forum and will see if I can find her office on a map.

That's another big difference from here. If a doctor or dentist isn't equipped to deal with something here they send you to someone else, usually with another lengthy wait between appointments. I love the way it's handled there.
