Affordable dentists in Nairobi:[Contacts and Location]

Admittedly, dental services in Kenya are generally expensive. But there are a few affordable dentists in Nairobi offering quality dental care services.

I say affordable because if you compare with the charges in other dental clinics, these prices their wisdom tooth extraction, dental implants, root canal treatment, teeth whitening, and even scaling a bit lower.

Interestingly, a good number of the affordable dentists in Nairobi are among the few offering cosmetic dentistry in Kenya as well as teeth crowning in Kenya.

Here are these specialists and their contacts.

Dentures cost in Kenya and dental cleaning cost in Kenya

Like I had hinted, some of the dentistry procedures can be extremely expensive unless you’re attending one of the affordable dentists in Nairobi I highlighted earlier.

For example, tooth whitening costs average between Sh8,000-12,000 per jaw.

Coming to Veneers, it may costs you as much as Sh20,000 and can rise to a high of Sh45,000 a tooth.

Other costs:

  • Consultation fee Sh1,000-Sh2,000.
  • Wisdom tooth extraction cost in Kenya -Sh3,000 – Sh5,000
  • Regular fillings cost -Sh3,000-Sh6,000.
  • Root canal filling costs- Sh15,000-Sh25,000
  • Porcelain crowns cost- Sh20,000-Sh30,000
  • Teeth scaling and polishing-Sh3,000-Sh6,000.


This is largely blamed on the massive shortage of dentists in Kenya because of the costs associated with training dentists in Kenya.

To put this in context, a Masters in Dental Surgery can costs about Sh1.5 – Sh2 annually in local universities.

In addition, not many form-four leaves take dental courses because of the tough entry grades.

For example, I enquired about dental surgery requirements at the University of Nairobi and I gathered that you must have a minimum of C+ grade in Chemistry, Physics/Mathematics, and English/Kiswahili besides a mean grade of C+.


Turning to the acceptable means of payments, there are dental clinics in Nairobi that accept NHIF (I added quite a number in the above list).

Also, note that costs in public hospitals are generally cheaper because of various government subsidies so you can consider seeing that government hospital near you.



Well, this has turned out to be quite long but I believe it’s going to be helpful.

I wanted to cover affordable dentists in Nairobi but my editor suggested that I include alternative dental clinics in Nairobi just in case your budget allows.

And for your kid, you can contact any pediatric dentist in Nairobi for assistance- and again, I have mentioned some of the very best pediatric practitioners in Nairobi.

Finally, check our upcoming comprehensive list of dentists in Kenya for the contacts of the best dentists in your town if you come from outside Nairobi.
