Tropical holiday destinations including Bali and Thailand have more to offer than just beautiful beaches and sunshine. Many people are now discovering that the cost of dental treatment can be significantly lower overseas; cheaper labour and real estate mean that high quality services are at a fraction of the cost.
A trip of a lifetime and a big smile
Thailand has a reputation as a global centre for excellence in dentistry and many other countries are working to build their reputation in this field. Often, clinics are set up specifically for medical tourists, including places such as Bali which also offer the chance for a great holiday alongside affordable, high quality dental treatment.
Dental treatment across Europe
If you’re a British expat, you won’t find much difference between the prices in Australia and the UK for most dental treatments, but if you regularly return to the UK there are treatment centres across Europe that are a short flight away. For example, treatment is available in most major Eastern European cities in countries such as Poland, Estonia, Greece, Turkey and Macedonia. Another advantage is that often clinics designed for medical tourists have a shorter waiting lists, which means it should be easier to book treatment for the dates that fit best with your holiday or a trip back to the UK to see family and friends.
Currency costs for dental treatment overseas
While it can be cheaper to have dental treatment abroad, the currency costs should be taken into account. A specialist currency provider can help you assess the full cost of any planned treatment, and help you manage currency fluctuations. A specialist can also help you make great value payments overseas over the phone or online. Whether you need to send an urgent payment to secure treatment for a toothache or make regular payments to cover the cost of cosmetic treatment, a currency specialist can help put a smile on your face with great rates and low fees on a range of currencies.
