Are you putting off dental care or have you received a shockingly expensive quote? If so there is another option available: receive dental care overseas and save up to 70%.
Here is how it works:
Visit https://www.dentaldepartures.com/ and search 2000+ doctor in 13 countries around the globe. You can easily compare clinics and review all the details you need to know about the clinic:
You've found the perfect dental clinic overseas and now it is time to make an appointment.
Click the big 'Book Now' button and enter the details of your appointment: the date you would like to receive treatment and the dental work you need.
When you click the big 'Confirm' button you have just confirmed your appointment. You will receive a confirmation e-mail providing you with all the details you need for your appointment:
You will receive a follow-up e-mail or phone call directly from the dental clinic about your appointment. At this time the dental clinic may request further information about your dental health (past history, X-rays, photos) that you can choose to send to the clinic prior to your appointment.
You can easily change/cancel your appointment at any time with Dental Departures by visiting https://www.dentaldepartures.com and clicking on 'Login'. Dental Departures does not charge a change/cancel fee. Please note, you may still be subject to change and cancellation fees that the dental clinic itself may impose. So go ahead, be free to change your mind.
Some dental clinics may require an initial deposit. These deposits terms will clearly be displayed in your confirmation e-mail and they can also be found on the clinics' listing under 'about clinic' and 'deposit terms'.
Now it is time to travel to your dental clinic for treatment! Print out your confirmation e-mail and bring it with you when you check-in at the dental clinic on the date/time agreed upon with the clinic. When you step through the clinic's doors you will be pleasantly surprised by the quality, cleanliness and modern equipment.
The doctor will first conduct an oral exam to determine your treatment plan. What work you think you need done on your teeth may in fact be different than what your doctor recommends. Once you have agreed with the treatment plan provided by your doctor lay back and enjoy!
You've completed your treatment and now you can smile with confidence!
You will pay the dental clinic directly for your dental treatment: you do not pay Dental Departures . You can pay for your dental treatment using payment methods (i.e. cash, credit card, PayPal etc.) accepted by the clinic which you can review in the 'about clinic' 'acceptable payment methods' area.
Please note, that you will pay your clinic in the local currency of the country where the clinic is located. Your credit card company may charge you a foreign exchange fee to complete the transaction in the local currency. In addition, we advise that you contact your credit card company ahead of your appointment to inform them of your dental payment because they may decline the transaction.
We understand that travelling outside of your country for dental care maybe confusing and even overwhelming. Here is how Dental Departures can help:
Each clinic listed on the Dental Departures website must complete a questionnaire pertaining to the doctors and their qualifications and licenses, as well as procedures adopted by the clinic toward safety and hygiene. Questions include years in business, doctor licensing, insurance, warranties and guarantees, criminal or malpractice history and sterilization protocols.
Patient testimonials and reviews are an important part of our quality measures – after all, no-one knows more about the quality of services than our patients. Dental Departures publishes reviews written by patients who have had treatment at the clinics on our site. Ensuring these reviews are truthful, and an accurate reflection of each patient’s experience is imperative, which is why we publish all reviews – good, bad or indifferent – and take care to remove fake ones.
Furthermore, personally visiting clinics and meeting with both the doctors and the management teams plays a crucial part. We currently visit 80% of our clinics every year, but hope to increase this to 100% in the near future.
Dental insurance doesn’t come cheap and in countries where there is public health care, waiting lists are long. In any case, feel-good cosmetic surgery treatments are rarely included in healthcare coverage. Most people can save at least 50%, amounting to thousands on even a relatively small cosmetic surgery treatment abroad, so travelling overseas for your treatment is kind to your pocket.
If you are wondering why dental treatment is so much less abroad it is not because the quality is less, or the materials used lower grade. It is simply because the cost of living is lower and so materials, labour costs and other overheads such as office rent are tiny compared to in the West.
Finding a good doctor or surgeon overseas is so much easier and quicker with Dental Departures. No longer do you have to trawl the internet to search for global dental clinics, you can find, compare and book an appointment on our site from providers available across the globe.
Dental Departures takes your security seriously. We ensure your data is safe by storing your personal information in secure databases at secure addresses. Only authorized people at Dental Departures have access to your data and we do not give or sell any of your information to any other sources. Your appointment data is protected and encrypted during transmission with Secure Socket Layer (SSL), and all our security protocols are certified by VeriSign.

As part of Dental Departures’ commitment in supporting local communities, we were overjoyed to be involved in a charity event at the Foundation Slum Child Care in Bangkok’s Chatujak District on 11th December 2015.
The Foundation is located in a slum area of the City and helps to take care of young children aged 3 months to 5 years old who come from underprivileged backgrounds. Many of these children are from poor families who cannot afford kindergarten care or are orphaned and living with an elderly grandparent. The Foundation provides a place for the children to be looked after while their parents are working and offers respite for carers.
We send big thanks to the Bangkok Smile Dental Group (BSDG) for supporting and joining in with our efforts and for donating toothbrushes and 5,000 THB to the Foundation.
We enjoyed a fun morning and as we joined in with the entertainment activities, as well as imparting some practical knowledge to the children on the right way to brush their teeth. We donated toothbrushes, toothpaste, books and pencils and are always proud to lend a hand and give something back to the community, wherever and whenever we can.
The Foundation Slum Child Care is located at Sueayai Community, Soi Sueayai,Ratchada 36m Ladyao Sub-District, Chatujak, Bangkok 10900 Thailand
Philippines and Smile More Dental Clinic conducted a charity event
Dental Departures - Philippines and Smile More Dental Clinic conducted a charity event at Asilo de San Vicente de Paul Orphanage on 11th October 2015.
Dental Departures believes in blessings in disguise and this is not the first time the Company has shared its blessings with unfortunate children. It is always in our hearts to extend a helping hand and to do more every day to enrich the lives of those whose needs are greater than ours.
Dr Richard Liao, a specialist at the Smile More Dental Clinic, also happens to have the same objectives. We combined our efforts and got together to deliver a special charity event where gifts were donated to the children, Dr Liao prepared food and the children sang songs. The happy smiles on the faces of these children, who despite being abandoned by their own parents welcomed us as part of their family, enough to make anyone teary-eyed.
The important thing in life is to leave something behind that far outlasts our own lives, and to touch as many lives as we can in a positive way. This is something that Dr Liao believes in wholeheartedly, and also, a mantra Dental Departures is fully committed to.
We will continue doing charity events, not only in the Philippines but also in the other parts of the world and to carry on supporting the lives of our local communities who are in need of our tender loving care.
At Dental Departures we believe that everyone should have a good quality of life and are conscious of the needs of our communities. We are happy and excited to be involved and to have the opportunity of supporting them.
On July 16, 2014 some of the Dental Departures team got together at Mexicali, Mexico for community work at Casa Hogar Betesda.
Casa Hogar Betesda has, for more than 9 years, been rescuing kids from the streets, and currently supports 30+ kids providing protection, food, education and a safe place to live.
The Dental Departures team donated food and toys to Casa Betesda, as well as volunteering our services by painting several areas of the facility. We also had a good time getting to know some of the kids and playing some games, including soccer.
We are very pleased to receive support from our dental partners in Mexicali and Los Algodones. Continental Dental Group provides regular check-ups and fluoride treatments to all the children. Also, Sani Dental Group Dr. Sonia Edeza Simply Dental and Castle Dental donated food, paint and supplies.
Dental Departures and its partners are proud to be contributing in some small way to our local communities, and we look forward to our continuing involvement in helping kids with their oral health, as well as other projects in years to come.
