Dental Tourism –A reason to smile with pleasure

-->

dental tourism is rapidly catching up with the advent of cross border mobility and with the growing economy of India. Medical tourism in India is expected to have an annual growth rate of 30%, and experts estimate that India’s medical tourism industry will contribute over $2 billion in annual revenue by 2012.

Medical tourism has opened up a new horizon of dental tourism. The reason behind the immense surge in medical tourism is that it has witnessed a tremendous growth in general all over the world. The increased availability of top-quality medical equipment, training, and technologies have allowed developing countries to build hospitals and health care systems that match and sometimes surpass the medical facilities that can be found in western developed countries like the U.S. or Britain and that too at a lower cost.


India has also made a conscious effort for dental tourism to comply strictly with international medical quality standards. Also, due to the fact that English is spoken widely throughout India which is another aspect of drawing a lot of native speakers of English for dental tourism. The government of India has also taken avid interest in the growth of the country’s medical tourism industry by repairing infrastructure issues that may hinder the industry growth.


Dental tourism is the option of medical treatment abroad for the purposes of having a dental procedure done, is one of the most popular reasons why medical tourists go to India for their healthcare needs. The economics of India’s dental tourism sector can give foreigners a taste for just how much westerners can save by having a medical procedure done abroad rather than at home at an exorbitant cost.


A dental filling in the U.S. or Europe can cost anywhere from $300 to $400. The same treatment in India will cost $20 to $40. That’s about a tenth of the price. No wonder dental tourism is a growing industry. For example a root canal treatment which costs $ 3000 in the West costs anywhere from $100 to $200 in India. Dentures may cost $200 in India, whereas in the West the cost can reach up to $1000 or more.

Besides, India is also a popular medical tourist destination because of its rich cultural history and popular tourist attractions. A lot of dental clinics in India that cater to western dental tourists set up package with tourism companies so that patients get to enjoy some of the sights and relax in India’s popular attraction sites during their brief sojourn.
