Dental Tourism has become one of the largely growing sectors of medical tourism together with cosmetic surgery and other procedures. The opportunity to receive low-cost, quality care has been strengthened by the increase of International accreditation of hospitals in these countries. Today, people from all over the world (with more than enough money) are more concerned with their mortality and of course their looks/appearance. From cosmetic surgery, cancer and other incurable treatments and now procedures and surgery. There are a lot of countries that offer Dental tourism among them are Albania, Bosnia And Herzegovina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Croatia, Dominican Republic, Egypt, Greece, India, Italy, Macedonia, Montenegro, Romania, Serbia, Singapore, South Korea, United Kingdom, Uruguay. And the top 10 are below: Here are the top 5 main reasons for and benefits of Dental Tourism: Cost and Pricing. The countries mentioned above have emerged as affordable places to get treatments and procedures. The cost is the main factor for people to decide to get their teeth done offshore and travel and tourism agencies also cooperate with these clinics and offers excellent care and the best discounted prices too. In some countries, procedures can sometimes be 5 times more expensive than the countries mentioned above. Root canal costs $1000 to $2000 but in those countries above, it is as low as $100.
High Quality Treatment. Another major factor for people to trust and patronize Dental Tourism is because of the high and world class quality of treatments and services including state of the art facilities. These countries have most of the largest and most up-to-date hospitals and offers best-in-class services in the dental treatment area. World Renowned Dentists. There are expert surgeons from these countries that are being trusted for rare cases and of course, charge reasonable prices. These dentists are not just based in one country and have dental clinics all over the world. They all promote Dental Tourism not solely for medical purposes but also to promote their country in the field of tourism. Treatment and Vacation at the same time. This is probably one of the best rewards a treatment offshore has to offer. While healing or waiting for the treatment, surgery or services, we can enjoy the natural beauties of these countries, their warm and hospitable people and the luxurious yet inexpensive hotels that are included in some of the packages. Location.
One of the most important factors for dental tourism is of course travelling to the nearest country that offers procedures. For example, if you are residing in the United States, Mexico is the nearest country that offers inexpensive dentistry and it is just across the border. Some countries have limited dental insurance coverage which make procedures such as root canal, dental iv sedation, braces, invisalign treatment not covered and expensive and that leaves them to carry out these treatments offshore. And that makes tourism their last resort.
