Unexpected dental treatment in Budapest

Treatment: Dental X ray - Panoramic
Provider: Helvetic Dental Clinics Budapest
Date: Oct 2014

Imagine going on a city break to Budapest, and ending up in a dentist's chair! But believe it or not, this is exactly what happened to me! And I am more than happy to let you know that this was one of the most beautiful and at the same time most useful city breaks ever! My best friend asked me whether  I would accompany her to a city break to Budapest, where she booked in for a free of charge consultation at Helvetic Clinics dental clinic. Although I only supposed to be an attendant on my best friends dental treatment, after having experienced the atmosphere of the clinic, and having seen the staff working there, and knowing that it is absolutely for free, I decided to get my long delayed visit to a dentist done. Odett, a very nice and kind English speaking interpreter helped me to get a consultation time at the clinic, and in the next second I was already on my way to the dentist's chair. Within half an hour after a thorough examination and a panoramic x-ray, I had my complete and detailed treatment plan in my hand! Not only this fast – but still very kind and personal - and free diagnosis was surprising, but when I saw the total costs of the treatments proposed by Peter, my specialist at Helvetic Clinics, I couldn't believe my own eyes! I immediately accepted the favorable plan after Odett had patiently explained me about the treatments and materials they use. I was sure already at that moment, that I could never get these treatments for these law prices – not to mention the kind and smiling faces at the clinic - nowhere at home in the UK. Peter started my treatment the same day, and I have already booked my next flight ticket to return to Budapest, and have the rest of the treatments done at Helvetic Clinics. I am more than satisfied so far! (Laura, 48)
