Dentist recommendation in Lisbon

Hello

As luck would have it, I seem to have cracked a tooth. I leave tomorrow for Lisbon. This tooth has been looked at by my dentist recently and he said a crown is the next step.

Does anyone have thoughts to share on finding a dentist in Lisbon? General thoughts or a specific recommendation would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Tom

Did your dentist fit a temporary crown? Do you want to get a crown fitted during your time in Portugal? (Logistically challenging since it will require at least a couple of appointments over a couple of weeks). Or are you looking for advice in case the tooth deteriorates and requires emergency work?

You should have left your dentist with at least a temporary crown. Failing that, or needing other dental or medical help, I ALWAYS ask at the front desk of the hotel I am staying at. I always stay at a hotel for the day or two before I start a Camino. this is one of the reasons why. Hotel desk staff ALWAYS have a doctor and dentist to send customers to in a pinch.

Hope this helps.

Hi, Tom,

Maybe contact Via Lusitana which is Portugues Pilgrim Association. They have 24/7 phone assistance and from the past posts I believe there is always someone that speaks English. You can find the number on the upper right hand side of this link: https://www.vialusitana.org/
I hope all will be well.

Bom Caminho!

Good advice. Thanks. I should have been more clear. It is a crack but not broken off. I was able to see my dentist yesterday and he said be gentle and if it breaks, get it fixed. Otherwise, see him after the trip.

On the plane now. Leave at Heathrow in 2 hours.

Thanks again.

Tom
