What is Dental Tourism?

Dental tourism is a new phenomenon where patients, mainly from Europe, North America and Australia, travel abroad for dental treatment. This trend started as a response to the increasingly high costs of healthcare and long waiting lists facing patients in many Western countries.

We are leaders in dental tourism in Punjab, India situated only 40 minutes by air from India's capital, New Delhi.
We offer trained dental experts, world class facilities, latest dental technology.

Dental Tourism Facts

According to the National Coalition on Health Care, more than 500,000 Americans traveled abroad to receive medical and dental work in 2006
An increasing wave of US patients—over 750,000 in 2007 alone—have travelled abroad for affordable medical treatment.
There are 4 major categories of medical tourism travelers:

  • Lack of Procedural Insurance: seek care for non covered procedures
  • Lack of Insurance
  • Cosmetic/Leisure: Vacation or convenience element during travel
  • Non FDA approved treatment
  • Diaspora: Seek treatment back in their native country
Two major factors for high healthcare industry costs in USA: doctors’ wages and malpractice insurance.
In India, a procedure including airfare is 90% cheaper than a procedure done in the US.

Why India for Dental Tourism?

Over the past few decades, India and dental treatment have become almost interchangeable. For the individuals who wish to have world class dental treatment, India has become an internationally recognized center for high quality dental care. Here are a few reasons why you should consider us for your dental tourism needs:

1. Prestigious group of Indian Dental Association (IDA) and American Dental Association (ADA) affiliated dental specialists all of them with very active professional careers in major dental schools and important hospitals of the country. Our dentists and facility qualifications are meaningful and verifiable. India has a long medical academic tradition having very strict laws that regulate training and qualifications of dentists who perform dental procedures and surgery.

2. India is rated as one of the Asian countries with the highest medical standard. Dental surgery is real surgery: it requires up-to-date education, sterile techniques, modern equipment, and products meeting international standards. We work in modern facilities which are designed for comfort and efficiency, using the latest technology and equipment to provide expert dentistry and cosmetic dentistry.

3. The dental and medical personnel involved in health tourism speak good English.

4. Excellent price-benefit ratio due to a high US$ vs. local currency exchange rate which benefits foreign currency tenders. Services and quality you pay for over here belong to the same category of those you would get in your country for four times the price. We are not exactly a "cheap" place because we offer excellent medical services. Bargain dental treatment can be costly, whether it is done in this country or anywhere in the world, dental treatment abroad has been attracting people based on very low prices, sacrificing quality, sanitary conditions and duly certified specialists' work.

5. The lower cost is not due to any lack in quality, quite the contrary. The reason for lower costs is related to the lower cost of infrastructure and insurance. Most practicing US cosmetic dentists must pay extremely high malpractice insurance rates. This fact, combined with the much higher costs for trained staff and medical facilities in foreign countries, combine to make India much more competitive.

6. India is a convenient country to visit: nice weather, warm people, beautiful tropical environments or city-urban accommodation. All-inclusive packages are very attractive and the fact we work on a fixed price basis, makes it even better.

7. We provide convenient appointments at short notice for our overseas patients. If the long lines and frustrating long waits at an NHS dentist in UK are wearing you down, contact us for an appointment.
