However, there are many approaches and philosophies in dentistry and your dentist / specialist will be able to advise you on what he believes to be the most appropriate for your oral health. Do not hesitate to consult a dentist / specialist for more information.
What is dental tourism?
Dental tourism is the travel to a country other than your country of residence for dental care. Patients opt for this form of tourism mainly to save money.
Since the standard of living is often cheaper than in the West, some foreign clinics can afford to lower the fees for their procedures.
Find the best dentist
Be careful: sometimes the experience could be disastrous.
Getting treatment abroad to reduce the costs of dental treatment can be attractive.
The prices are unbeatable, but is the quality still there?
Educational standards are not the same in all countries.
The Internet is a tool that makes it easier to obtain care.
Dental tourism agencies in different countries advertise “all-inclusive” packages: hotel room reservations, airline tickets and tours of tourist attractions. Dental clinics are seeking to attract an international clientele. Among other things, some Canadian retirees who spend the winter in the south are good clients of these clinics.
Canadian medical tourism agencies also offer good prices to dental tourists. However, these agencies use patient testimonials to promote their product, despite warnings from Canadian dentists that care is sometimes of lower quality.
