What is Dental Tourism?

What is Dental Tourism?Definition: Dental tourism (also called dental vacations or commonly known as dental holidays in Europe) involves individuals seeking dental care outside of their local healthcare systems, which may be accompanied by a vacation.

A person’s choice to seek treatment abroad is typically price-driven, but other factors such as the quality, accessibility and transparency of dental care in their home country can also influence their decision.

Dentists who practice in emerging economies are able to take advantage of lower overall costs, particularly for labor, rent and insurance. As for quality, there are many experienced and skilled dentists who have graduated from well-respected schools of dentistry in Europe or North America.
