This Way Thurs-Way 5: Teeth Specialist Signs

Thursday, April 23, 2009

It is time for another This Way Thurs-Way. I have made a collage of teeth specialist signs that I had noticed at several places when we were on the road, and last week I finally got my final piece... A teeth specialist shop! Ahli gigi means teeth specialist in Bahasa Indonesia, and I actually didn't know what these teeth specialists do. My husband told me that they provide fake teeth. Have a great day, everybody :)!

Oh? I guess there are difference between Bahasa Indonesia and Bahasa Malaysia when it comes to using terms. Here dentist also provide dentures (fake teeth) and it's known as 'Doktor gigi' or the shop is known as 'klinik pergigian but never the term 'ahli'.

Bim said...

Oh, I love those! Especially the first one :)

Vicky said...

Ahli Gigi, that's interesting.
This remains me of a "teeth specialist" whom I think is VERY unhygienic and unprofessional yet there is always a long list of people waiting for him to get their dentures fixed!!In fact he doesn't have any of those nice signs you have there. His is just by word of mouth. I bet he doesn't have a license too.

I never have been in one of these shops, so I can't tell anything further about this ;). Dokter gigi is the term in Indonesia for dentist.

Robin said...

Very descriptive signs - some of those false teeth are downright scary looking LOL.

All sparkling teeth. Not a rotten one in sight!! Keep up the good work, Doktor Gigi!

Really, nothing beats having nice teeth and of course, a nice smile!

Hmmmmmmm--a teeth specialist... Interesting, Rosidah... I was going to say that they 'clean' teeth--but I guess not. SO--they provide false teeth for anyone who has lost their teeth I guess.. Quite interesting!!!

I'm learning alot from you.
Hugs,
Betsy

Ya, saya juga bingung waktu saya ke Jakarta, banyak tulisan yang "Ahli gigi". Terahir saya mengerti, tapi susah2 untuk saya.
Habis orang spanyol kepala keras sih.
Salam sejahtera.
