It all seems so simple; you’ve found yourself a discount dentist or the perfect cheap dental tourist package.
But, do you have the same redress if something goes wrong?
What about things like;
- infections aftercare qualifications quality of products insurance coverage
You need to check if your dental insurance covers your treatment abroad. You also need to check whether your dental insurance would cover you if something went wrong after you returned home.
There are many highly skilled dental experts operating in countries around the world. However, not every country has the same rules and regulations.
This means that someone who would be unable to practice dentistry in one country may be able to run a dental center in another country.
Certain products and materials that could not be used in one country may be perfectly acceptable in another country. For instance a dental implant and all that goes with it may not be FDA-approved in the USA, but may be approved in the country you’re being treated in.
You may be able to get cheap permanent dentures abroad, but will they last if the materials aren’t as robust as those used at home?
