What Is Dental Tourism?

Dental tourism is the practice of going outside of the United States to get dental work done. One of the main reasons that people go to either Cancun or Mexico is for the affordability. The Dental Concierge gets you high-quality care. The majority of dental tourism services you see will be cheap, but not offer the level of care that we do. 

The Dental Concierge can help you get great rates on cosmetic dentistry, such as implants or veneers, and will make sure that your experience is as enjoyable as it can be. Depending upon where you live, if you get your implants done in Costa Rica or Cancun, you could be paying up to 50% less than what your local dentist would charge you.

What Are the Best Countries for Dental Tourism? 

In past years, Patients Beyond Borders did some research on the top choices for Americans to go get their cosmetic dentistry done. Cancun and Costa Rica were at the top of that list. Other countries included Thailand, Hungary, Spain, the Philippines, the Czech Republic, and Turkey. Mexico and Costa Rica offered several benefits for Americans. These included lower costs (in comparison to going to Europe), a wider array of treatment options, and a shorter trip. 

How Does Dental Tourism Work? 

If you work with The Dental Concierge, we have one of the simple processes for getting cosmetic dentistry. Our team will pick you up at the airport, get you situated in your lodging, and make sure you have transportation to the appointment. At your first session, you’ll get temporary dentures, but most importantly, you’ll get a full mapping of your mouth with the latest technology. This will ensure that you have the perfect smile. After your first session, it might be six months before you come back to our clinic. At your second session, we’ll make sure that your implants are fitted just right. If anything goes wrong after you have left, you can get treatment at a local dentist’s office, the best one near you. 

Choosing a Cosmetic Dentist to Work With Abroad

If you are looking for a cosmetic dentist to work with abroad, one of the most important things to consider is AACD accreditation vs. AACD membership. Our cosmetic dentist was the first accredited member of the AACD in Costa Rica. Additionally, there is a lengthy process to get accredited, including:

  • A minimum of five years to get accredited
  • A very rigorous written examination
  • A peer review by the world’s leading cosmetic dentists.

A cosmetic dentist may be on their way to accreditation through membership, but if someone is AACD accredited, you should choose them.
