Most people have now heard something about dental holidays, where patients travel abroad to get cheaper treatment. One of the most popular destinations is Budapest, and many people are now opting to travel for dental treatment in Hungary.
There are a number of companies that offer dental treatment in Hungary. One such company is Access Smile, who have clinics in Budapest and Dublin. The advantage of using a company like this is that they will work with patients to make the whole process as smooth as possible, from consultation to organising treatment, as well as helping to arrange hotels and transfers.
Why travel for dental treatment in Hungary?
Hungary is one of the most popular destinations for dental treatment, and many dentists there actually treat more British people than Hungarians! The capital, Budapest, is a great destination, full of history, and a wonderful place to spend a few days while having treatment. Take a walking tour to explore the architecture, enjoy the delicious Hungarian food or relax in one of the city’s hot springs.
Be careful when choosing a dentist
A quick search online will reveal a worrying number of horror-stories about people who have had bad experiences abroad but don’t be put off. As long as people are careful about choosing a reputable dentist, they can expect treatment as good, if not better, than they would receive in the UK. A few things to look for are:
- does the company offer any guarantee on their work?
- if the company has a clinic in the UK as well as in Hungary, it will make follow-up treatments much easier
- make sure the price given is a full quote and not just an estimate
- if patients are concerned, it may be worth visiting the clinic in Hungary before committing to the treatment
- patients should check their legal rights, in case anything goes wrong.
Patients are often surprised to find that some dental clinics in Hungary are more advanced and better equipped than those in the UK. With staff who speak perfect English and dentists who are fully qualified and experienced, with the right company, most patients are very satisfied with their dental treatment in Hungary.
