Dental implants and root canal surgery in Slovakia

Treatment: Root canal treatment - Back teeth
Provider: Dental Holiday
Date: Jan 2010

Barbara went to Dental Holiday for dental implants and root canal treatment abroad. After the free X-Ray and consultation with Dr. Marek, she decided to go ahead with the treatment the same day.

During her consultation, Barbara explained the experienced she had before coming to Dental Holiday: "I can't tell you how many phone calls I've made, looking for a dental clinic to help me!" "The prices I was quoted were far too expensive and the waiting periods for treatment were unrealistically long," she said. I was so relieved when I found www.dentalholiday.co.uk. I read on the website that it is a Dental clinic in Slovakia that caters for UK patients only."

After doing her research and reading up on the Dental Holiday, Barbara sent an email requesting a quote. To her surprise, after calculating the travel costs, the cost of getting the implants and root canal treatment, and accommodations costs, she would only have to pay approximately 35% of the total price she was quoted in the UK for the dental treatment she so desperately needed. She immediately decided to take the journey to the Dental Holiday to have her dental treatment abroad.

She was not scared to travel abroad for dental treatment because she felt comfortable knowing that it was a UK dental clinic and that it is run by British people living abroad. Also, she read a number of the patients' comment and stories on the dentalholiday.co.uk website.

Even though she knew of the quality and organised services provided by Dental Holiday staff, (from patients' stories and information provided to her by email conversations and the website as a whole), she was amazed at how she was treated. "From the moment I arrived, to the time I left, everything was spot-on: Generous and courteous staff, and overall, immaculate and professional" she said, with a smile. "My follow-up treatment was excellent and I felt, so welcomed and appreciated and treated as if I am the only one that matters, and to me that's great service," she said positively. 

The positive experience kept her going back to Piestany Dental Clinic, just for friendly visits with the staff.
