Putting the bite on 'traditional' dentists

Following HIV cross-contamination in Battambang, traditional dentistry practices are under increased scrutiny

A sign featuring a large tooth hangs outside the shophouse where, for the past eight years, Lim Kim Hout has been practising dentistry - but no university degrees hang on his walls.

"I didnt go to school; I just learned dentistry from my teacher," Hout reluctantly admitted this week at his small, grimy clinic near Koralanh Market, a few kilometres from Siem Reap. "I took all his lessons and then started my own practice.

Hout sees one or two patients a day, he said, and cleans his instruments after each, but when asked to reveal what sterilisation method he used, he refused - "No, no, no" - and would not say why.

Patients risk much more than botched tooth extractions by going to these so-called "traditional dentists": If instruments contaminated with blood and saliva are not properly sterilised, health experts warn they could pass on infectious and possibly life-threatening diseases.
