Tooth tourism in the UK reaching record highs.

Share Article

Attracted by the prospect of shorter waits and lower prices, more and more British nationals are travelling abroad for their dental work.

We have personally toured the dental clinics, met the dentists and their staff, and verified their credentials to help tooth tourists feel confident, safe and secure on their dental vacation.

The UK's Office for National Statistics shows that 1.68 million UK residents embarked on dental tourism to Mexico, the Caribbean or Latin America in 2007. More than one million tooth tourists travelled to India.

Generally speaking, a trip to the dentist is rarely a highly anticipated event, but in the UK, any fear of needles and drills is further heightened by waits that are weeks long and bills that are prohibitively expensive. Hence the birth of a burgeoning trend in dental care known as tooth tourism, the act of leaving one's country to seek dental care in a neighbouring country or even in another continent.

What can they save on their dental treatments? Up to 70% of the cost of dental work in the UK. A titanium implant costs as little as £495 and porcelain crowns as little as £178. In addition to taking advantage of incredible savings, many of these tooth tourists are able to combine their procedures with sightseeing and relaxation before treatment or while in recovery.

Seeing a dentist in a strange land might be cause for concern, but many tooth tourists are turning to a new online services called ToothTourism.com who have already done the homework for them. "Our medical professionals have travelled the globe to meet English-speaking, board-certified dentists who welcome tooth tourists," says Cheli McDonald. "We have personally toured the dental clinics, met the dentists and their staff, and verified their credentials to help tooth tourists feel confident, safe and secure on their dental vacation."

ToothTourism.com represents board-certified dentists in Costa Rica, Panama, Mexico, El Salvador and the Dominican Republic. The company has also added an Australian, board-certified dentist in India and is researching candidates in Europe.

If you're considering becoming a tooth tourist, before you embark on your international dental holiday, it makes sense to trust a company that can point you to qualified, English-speaking dentists who have passed their "check-ups."

ToothTourism.com, a Canadian Internet-based organization, offers assistance to patients seeking lower-cost dental care in international countries, including information on board-certified dentists, financing and insurance. ToothTourism.com is owned by a licensed Canadian doctor, a licensed Canadian pharmacist, and their partners.
