Dental Tourism is the act of travelling outside of your home country to obtain dental care. While dental tourists may travel for a variety of reasons, those reasons are usually driven by cost considerations.
While cost is still a driving factor, these days, many travellers see dental tourism as an opportunity to get the healthcare they need at an affordable cost, while taking advantage of time in a an exotic and desirable vacation destination.
In the case of Emerald Dental Clinic, our patients look at it as a no-brainer. They are getting that care from some of the best dentists in the town that have all the qualifications and talents. Moreover, while they are recovering, they’re spending the holidays in a tropical paradise, instead of their living rooms.
What makes Emerald Dental Clinic the safest option?
As the cost of dental care in countries like the United States and GCC continues to rise, more and more people are looking to other countries for their dental health needs. However, the most common question that keeps coming up is, “is dental tourism safe”? It is a valid question and something that prospective dental travellers should consider very carefully. The answer to that question is that it depends.
The fact is that there are very talented dentists all over the world that are every bit as good as what you might find in your own country. Nevertheless, just as you would at home, you need to do your research and find the right dentist for your needs. While many look to dentists overseas because they are a more economical option, the cost should be secondary to the dentist’s track record and qualifications. Dental tourism can be very safe if you find the right doctor in the right country.
The real question is why wouldn’t you choose India?
With so many countries in the world marketing themselves as dental tourism destinations, why should someone choose India? Well, we think the answer is easy, because India is one of the most beautiful places on earth. However, here are a few more reasons for you to consider.
India is world renowned for its extremely high medical standards and protocols. The country has a long history of being a safe, secure destination for medical tourists of all types…dental health, cosmetic surgery, fertility and hormone treatments among others.
India offers unparalleled value when it comes to the level of service you receive. The costs of medical services in India are usually less than half of what you might pay in the U.S. or GCC.
India is arguably one of the safest countries in all of Asia.
Indians are known for being extremely friendly and very well educated
India is home to an extraordinary variety of climatic regions, ranging from tropical in the south to temperate and alpine in the Himalayan north, where elevated regions receive sustained winter snowfall. The nation’s climate is strongly influenced by the Himalayas and the Thar Desert.
A better value for all the right reasons.
Many people make the false assumption that healthcare in India is less expensive than places like Canada or the U.S. because it’s inferior in quality. But really, nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, at Emerald dental clinic, we use the same exact brand name materials that dentists use in the U.S.
Here are the two main reasons we are able to offer such an excellent value.
- The cost for the same exact brand of dental materials you would find at home is lower in India because our economies are smaller. Manufacturers adjust their costs accordingly.
- Because fixed costs such as rent, taxes, etc. as well as labour costs for skilled help are lower in India than in the U.S. or Canada, we are able to pass those savings on to our patients.
