What is Dental Tourism ?
Medical tourism is one of the trends of the day and dental tourism is no exception to it. Although a part and parcel of Medical Tourism, Dental Tourism has quickly emerged as a major contributor to the former, with the emergence of advanced dental infrastructure in India.
Dental tourism, although a new breeze, is witnessing tremendous demand, wherein patients from abroad or different states of the country flock in to make the best out of affordable dental treatment and procedures from well experienced and expert dental professionals while exploring new places and cultures.
Dental Tourism mainly involves individuals seeking dental care outside their health care systems and may be accompanied by a vacation. As there have been technical, material and technological advances in various aspects, it enables the providers in developing nations to provide dental care at significant cost savings when compared to their peers in developed nations.
Dental tourism in India has been growing tremendously as India over the decades has been attracting tourists all over the world for its historical and cultural heritage. While dental tourists travel for a variety of reasons, their choices are usually driven by price considerations. It is possible to compare the prices of treatment, for instance, the same implant or porcelain veneer would be cheaper in India as compared to the US, UK, Canada, Europe Australia or middle east countries. The price difference here is not explainable by reference to material cost.
Why Pune is the preferred location to treat your dental problems, you might ask. The reasons are:
- Lower Medical Costs: Medical treatments, especially dental treatments, burn a hole in your pocket especially in the USA, UK, Europe and many other countries when compared to India even if you are covered by insurance. Especially in Pune, you can find top-of-the-line dental professionals who offer the same quality of treatment at a much lesser price point. You can buy flight tickets to Pune using the money you saved.
