A guide to dentistry abroad

NOTE: This guide can be downloaded as a PDF document to read at your leisure.

More and more people are considering dental treatment abroad.  Most are attracted by the competitive prices offered in overseas destinations; others wish to combine their dental treatment with a relaxing period of recovery in a sunny climate, or with a regular holiday trip.

But for the patient considering dental treatment abroad, there may be some concerns. What are the conditions like in dental clinics overseas? Is the dentist suitably qualified? Where can I get the best deal? What questions should I ask about the treatment? What happens if I am unhappy with the outcome of the treatment?

This guide attempts to answer these questions and guides the patient through the process of exploring the options for dental treatment abroad. It has been developed through the experience that we have gained through operating the Treatment Abroad web site and our knowledge of the medical tourism industry in general.
