Travelling to Thailand for dental work has many of distinct advantages. Not only will you receive the highest quality of care in state of the art facilities, you also have a number of options during your treatment. Thailand offers some of the most beautiful scenery and beaches in the world and can provide you with a wonderful holiday once your dental work is finished.
Thailand features beautiful beaches, verdant mountains, and a rich culture for you to explore while you’re traveling. Thailand’s people are known worldwide for their incredible hospitality – there’s a reason why this is known as the “Land of Smiles.” It is for these reasons and more that dental tourism in Thailand has become one of the country’s most highly regarded industries. It may surprise you to know that most of the dentists practicing in Thailand today speak English quite well, and will have no trouble understanding you when you go in for treatment.
Thailand was the first Asian country to receive JCI accreditation, the “gold standard” of international health care practices. This means that standards of care provided in Thailand’s dental clinics and hospitals are on-par with what you will receive in dental clinics in Australia, United States and the UK. This is because most of the dentists in Thailand have undergone the same type of training that western dentists do. In fact, many of them train at higher learning institutions in Australia, United States and, UK. The clinics and hospitals where they work to provide care feature state of the art dental technology such as 3D CAD/CAM and digital dental panoramic x-rays that you won’t find in many dental clinics even in the Australia.
Dental treatments in Thailand are often far less expensive than what you will receive in clinics in Australia. For example, the average cost for having a dental crown placed in Australia is over $1200. In Thailand, this same dental treatment will typically only cost around $350. This difference in cost holds true through treatments such as dental implants, root canals, and most other dental treatments as well. This means that even when you add in the cost of travelling, dental work in Thailand is usually far cheaper than what you will receive in dental clinics in Australia, United States or UK.
If you are only beginning to research dental tourism, the size of this industry may surprise you. Many people are skeptical about whether or not dental care in Thailand will meet their standards. You may find yourself worrying about language barriers, but this isn’t something that you should feel concerned over. At Overseas Dental Solutions, we interview each of the dentists that we work with personally to ensure that there will be no language barrier when you travel using our services. We also have our own dental professionals on our in-house staff that have toured the facilities where you will be receiving care. We only work with the most up to date facilities and most highly qualified dentists to ensure that while you are traveling to receive less expensive dental care, this care will not be substandard.
