Don't waste your money or time at the American Dental Centre
I had recently come to Qatar from Canada and I was receiving orthodontic treatment. I went to to the "American Dental Centre" to finish the last 5 months of treatment, which is basically changing a wire, and a few elastics, my dentist in Canada said each (elastics and wire) came up to the sum of $10 canadian which is about 30 QR.
After being shocked that the orthodontist wasn't American or educated in North America I was much more shocked by the price being offered for the monthly change of wire which was 500QR!!! That works out to $170 per treatment when in Canada I was paying about $95. He also said somewhere in the thousands for the retainer I would need afterwards.
Anywho, I found another Dental Centre that offers ortho-treatments for 100QR each and 600QR for the retainer.
My suggestion look around and if you know people talk to them before paying any insane unreasonable prices.
