Dental tourism is when people are travelling to other countries to have their dental treatment done.
Due to the high cost of dental treatment in several European countries and in the United States or Canada people decide to search for dental treatment abroad hoping that it will cost them cheaper. However, this is not always the case, as sometimes if dental treatment is poorly planned and guided only by reducing its cost, then the result might be compromised and might cost more in the long term. For this reason, choosing the right dentist and dental surgery is fundamental in order to achieve a long-lasting result. So, if someone chooses to go abroad for dental treatment, he/she should make sure that the dentist he/she is visiting is fully qualified to provide it. Also, the dental surgery should have very high standards of prevention of cross infection and all the staff should be adequately trained.
WHY IS IT CHEAPER ABROAD
Many factors contribute to the answer to this question:
- Dental treatment fees depend on the cost of life which in some countries is not that high.
- Running costs of the surgery may be lower in some countries.
- Dental materials could cost cheaper in certain countries.
- Percentage of dentists in the population of certain countries can be quite high, so competition can lower the fees and also improve the quality of dental treatment.
