Saria -> Santiago September 2019
I have arrived in O Pedrouzo for the final night of my pilgrimage. Unfortunately I have had some tooth problems today & might need to see a Dentist on Monday. Any help would be much appreciated.
Thank you.

I don't know... not many dentists advertise if they speak a different language or not. I would just stop by a dentist once in Santiago and ask. There are many in Santiago, but this place is one of them, centrally located as well (I have no personal experience here):

Thank you.
I'm sure Tourist Office or Pilgrim Office would know the answer.

Wish you all the best!

Having broken a front tooth after walking into an unmarked glass door in an albergue on the third day of the Camino, my first appointment in Santiago was at the tourist office. The helpful staff directed me to one of the 101 dental practices in the city, where I was seen without an appointment. I’m sorry that I cannot recall the name of the practice, but I can assure you that the young dentist who repaired the damage proved to be both a fluent English-speaker and a highly competent dentist.

I had to see some doctors during this year's Camino due to some minor issues that had potential to become very serious issues indeed.
I used Google translate combined with the proper Latin medical designations for symptoms found on a official health care Web site in my native language.
It worked perfectly although the doctors didn't understand a word in English. But nonetheless I found them to be very competent and carefull. They didn't do anything before they were absolutely sure they had understood the problem correctly. The treatment prescribed was the correct one and worked perfectly. They even gave me a paper with the symptoms, cause and cure for the issue at hand so I could continue my pilgrimage but contact doctors further ahead if needed.
From my experience I'll say that not all Spanish doctors may speak English. But they are competent, professional and careful. I'll trust them any day.
And trust in other people is sometimes necessary for a Pilgrim 😊

Hello there, Clínica Millenium, you can try that one. I went with a pilgrim 2 years ago and you can pay cash and not expensive, ask anyway just in case, sometimes doctors change. It is in Doutor Teixeiro st.
