It is now a common knowledge that third-world countries are emerging as new destinations for dental treatments . These include India , Thailand , China , Brazil , etc . Recent advancements in technology and their easy availability has made it possible for these countries to attract foreign patients . Thousands of patients travel to India every year seeking affordable cosmetic and dental procedures .
But what exactly has caused this surge ?? Why last year more than 500,000 patients from first globe countries like US , UK , Canada and Australia , went for treatments abroad ?
A lot of factors come in to influence this decision :
1) AFFORDABILITY :
One of the biggest concern for a citizen of a developed nation is the skyrocketing costs of dental healthcare , the cost of which drops drastically in other countries .
For instance , a filling costs a whopping 350 $ in US whereas it costs only 20 $ for the same !
One can save upto 80% of the expenditure that he/she bears for procedures like root canal treatment and implants in US or UK , including travel costs .
2) Poor insurance benefits at their indigenous nations
With constant increase rise in costs of medical and dental procedures in their country , insurance schemes are not exactly at par with the needs of a patient . And hence , don’t benefit the patient much .
3) High Quality And Standard
With an upperhand of English speaking practitioners , India can give a more understanding environment to the patients . India now provides first globe high quality procedures at 3rd world costs . With an increasing number of dental practitioners , competition rises , which further reduces the costs and increases the efficiency . Good private setups in India are now using latest equipments and methods to provide dental procedures and surgeries .
4) Added benefit of vacations at low rates
Often these patients come on vacation basis and start looking for good and famous practitioners . Along with the treatment , patient enjoys going to tourist destinations .
5) Easy Consultation
Patients can now take consultation from a doctor while sitting on another continent . Patients can email their x-rays and reports to the doctor and get the required procedures planned according to their visits .
We at DentalBhaji , are dealing with international brands of crowns like Bruxzir,czar,zirkonia and implants from Noble and are using newest equipments available in the field of dentistry . In no way do low rates of these procedures affect the quality of the treatment and the proficiency of our practitioners .
