If you’re planning on having some dental work done in Thailand, you may want to consider visiting a city like Phuket, instead of travelling to Bangkok. Though it is slightly more remote, Phuket has a more “beachy” atmosphere, giving you the sense of being on a holiday. After all, why not make a holiday out of your visit when you’re travelling for dental work in Thailand?
Phuket’s beautiful beaches and crystal-clear waters make it an ideal place to holiday. While travelling for your dental work, you can also experience world-class cuisine, amazing theatre, unbelievable diving experiences and more. If you’re going to be travelling to Thailand for your dental work, it’s hard to imagine a more beautiful and relaxing destination than Phuket.
The benefits of travelling for dental work
Travelling to Thailand cities such as Phuket for dental work has become a growing trend among many patients. This is because a number of Thailand dentists have received world-class training in Western universities for their craft, and then travelled home to help people in their own country. The result is that even when considering travel costs, the costs of dental care in Thailand is often far less than what you would pay in many Australian and New Zealand dental surgeries.
Dental work or holiday – why not both?
When you have to go to your dentist for dental work, you often have to use your annual leave. This means that you have fewer days and opportunities to take a holiday. But why not combine the two? When you travel to Phuket for dental work you can take a holiday and get your dental work completed at the same time. Not only is this option convenient, it can save you thousands of dollars. For example, the average cost of a trip to Phuket where you combine your holiday activities and your dental work will generally cost around $6,000 (depending on the treatment you’re receiving). However, a trip to the Gold Coast in Australia without any dental work at all will cost around $7,000. Travelling to Thailand for dental work not only saves you time – it saves you money as well.
A word of caution!
Although travelling to Thailand for dental treatment has become increasingly common, it’s important to know that this sort of undertaking requires a lot of planning. To research the various cities and dentists in order to make sure that you’re receiving the quality of care that you would expect is not an easy task. This is difficult to do online, as there is no way to verify that the pictures and information on any office’s website is actually what you’ll find when you arrive. Dental treatments are not “products” that you can just buy off a shelf like makeup or a hand bag. It takes weeks of preparing and planning.
