UK Dental Crisis Driving Expansion to Quality, Affordable Destinations

“As healthcare costs for dental and other elective procedures prove unaffordable for healthcare consumers in industrialized nations, and particularly in response to the growing crisis in British dentistry, it is now an increasingly popular option to travel abroad for treatment, says Josef Woodman, CEO of Patients Beyond Borders, a partner of Medical Departures. “Throughout the UK, this trend is exacerbated by the dwindling supply of dental specialists, low or non-existent reimbursements for dental care, treatment delays and mountains of red tape.”
Thus, patients are increasingly seeking care across borders in popular destinations such as Hungary, Poland, Czech Republic and Turkey. Dental Departures now offers patients from the the UK, Ireland and the region the same affordable, quality-checked dental facilities in Europe that North Americans and Australasians enjoy in Latin America and Asia.
