Dental tourists can get exactly the same oral surgical procedures performed at less than half of the costs (compared to the US and the UK).

A Long History Of Dental Tourism

The popularity of dental tourism has increased rapidly over the decade. In fact, traveling to different countries for medical treatment has existed for hundreds of years, but in the late 1990s, dental tourism grew into a viable industry in Hungary. Hundreds of tourists plan dental trips to Hungary to enjoy the excellent spas, history, and countryside.

In recent years the number of dental tourists traveling to Hungary for dental works has doubled. The reason for the big increase in the interest about dental tourism to Hungary is that patients from the UK, Ireland, Sweden, Norway and Denmark, even people from the USA and Canada are starting to explore the benefits Hungarian dental treatments have to offer.

Hungary has always been known for its advanced dental technology and affordable prices

Benefits Of Dentistry In Hungary

The procedures available are extensive: necessary dental work, cosmetic dentistry, oral surgery, dental implants, and dentures. The main reason for traveling to Hungary for dental procedures is the cost of dental treatment. Dental costs in some European and North American countries have risen considerably while health insurance coverage has decreased. Hungarian dental clinics, in some cases, charge less than half the prices for a dental implant in Hungary than dentists charge in other countries. Another reason for overseas dental treatment is the quality of service. Hungarian dentists are highly trained and use the latest technology to complete necessary and cosmetic dental procedures. The quality for the inexpensive cost of dentistry is tempting to many tourists who cannot afford dental care in their own countries. Other benefits are the safety guidelines, cleanliness of facilities, and accommodations.

If the dental appointment is made prior to the vacation, some offices refer patients to a travel agency to plan the entire trip. Time is also a factor in choosing dental treatment abroad, the amount of time between appointment setting and the actual appointment is considerably shorter, and the duration of the procedure is reduced.

Dentistry In Hungary – High Volume of Dental Tourists

The number of people searching the internet for dental alternatives is rapidly increasing. As dental costs and the need for oral care rise, more people will be combining vacations with dental care. Practices that advertise on the internet and located near scenic areas are more likely to increase cross-border and overseas patients. Many participants live close to the border and only travel a few hours (from e.g. Vienna). This is far less expensive than accepting local dental care. As more people enjoy overseas travel, health care costs rise, and dental offices move closer to hotel accommodations, including a dental appointment in the travel plans will become more common.
