All of our clinics include listings of their prices for each procedure they undertake. Getting a feel for the prices is as easy as clicking on the 'Procedures and Prices' tab on each clinic's page on our website. Not only does this give you the prices at that particular clinic, but you can also see - at a glance - what the comparable prices are at home, illustrated by the prices in grey which are scored out. This page also gives you an estimate of the time the treatment takes.
Whilst these are accurate, they may not reflect your exact circumstances, so we have made it easy to obtain a free quote specific to your circumstances. Just by clicking on the 'Get a Free Quote' tab a convenient calculator will appear, enabling you to get an estimated price on your specific dental care. This also has a unique 'savings calculation' feature, illustrating just how much money you can save by having your specific treatment at that clinic:
If you are not sure exactly what treatment you will require, click on the ‘Get a Personalized Quote' button and a dentist will contact you to discuss your options.
The length of time you will need to stay is really dependent on what kind of treatment you have. Some treatments, such as fillings or laser teeth whitening, can be done in a matter of hours. Other treatments may take place over a few days, or weeks, such as implants, and may require two visits 6 months' or a year apart. We can advise you how long your procedure is likely to take and how many visits you may require.
Yes - in our experience it certainly can be. There are world-class facilities with excellent reputations, many of which are established, recognized centers for international patients. Thailand is particularly highly-regarded and popular for medical tourism, as is Mexico. So, too, is Costa Rica, The Philippines, Colombia, Malaysia and also countries in Europe, such as Poland and Bulgaria.
Essentially, as long as you choose your doctor and clinic with care, you will be able to find exceptional standards of medical care practically anywhere on the planet. Booking with Dental Departures ensures that some of the precautions you should take when booking medical care abroad have already been done for you.
We work closely with our clinics and perform background checks on the qualifications and expertise of clinicians, as well as looking for any legal or criminal proceedings. We have people on the ground who undertake onsite inspections, and we also gather real patient testimonials. All these elements taken together give us a reasonably good picture as to the quality of our clinics and doctors, so that our patients can book with confidence and be realistically assured as to the outcomes of their treatment.
Our overseas dentists have received extensive dental training, just like their Western counterparts. Indeed, many of our dentists have received training at Western universities and have accreditations with the American Dental Association, Australia Dental Association or British Dental Association. It is not uncommon for dentists in Mexico and Costa Rica to have trained in the US and Canada, Thailand dentists to have trained in Australia and New Zealand and European dentists in the UK. You will be able to find where your dentist has trained by clicking on the 'Dentists' tab under each clinic.
Although standards do vary from country to country, all of our dentists adhere to the same basic systems of maintaining hygiene as dentists at home do. All wear gloves and masks and use antibacterial solutions to cleanse surfaces. Steam Autoclave sterilization is used for sterilizing tools and equipment in every modern dental clinic throughout the world, and ours are no exception. Many of our dentists are also members of international organizations, such as the ISO (International Organization for Standardization) or the JCI (Joint Commission International).
As many of our dentists are located in busy areas, there are usually lots of accommodation options available. Some of our clinics offer reduced rates at local hotels, and this information will be available in the clinic listing. There are also plenty of hotel websites. You will find a link on each clinic page to a hotel booking site where you can do your own searches. Alternatively, you can contact us and we will be happy to help you.
Our dental clinics' provide diligent and careful work based on established procedures, research and study. All of our clinics offer warranties on the work they do, as well as the materials they use. You can be confident that any crowns, bridges, veneers, inlays, onlays, dentures and dental implants are covered under warranty in the improbable occurrence that a fault occurs.
No. Our service is completely free to patients.
Yes, of course. You can either contact us and we will arrange a mutually convenient time for you both to speak to each other. Alternatively, click on the 'Contact Clinic' button on the clinic webpage and send your request direct to the clinic.
Dentists abroad are trained in all areas of dentistry – just as they are at home. Your overseas dentist will be able to undertake all dental procedures, from minor dentistry such as fillings, through to extensive dental work, such as full mouth rehabilitation. The only bar to any dental work will be your own time constraints, and how long, or how often, you are prepared to visit a dentist in another country.
For this reason, orthodontics (re-aligning teeth with braces) is not usually an option for dental tourism patients as it requires regular attendances over a period of 18 months or more.
It really depends on what procedure you are having done, and in what country. As a general guide, most people find they can save at least 50% on comparable costs at home. However, savings may be up to 80% on extensive dental work.
Many of the countries that offer inexpensive dental treatment have lower living costs. This means that all the overheads associated with your dental care will be considerably less. Reduced overheads include clinic rent, utilities, administration expenses, labor costs and laboratory materials.
Have you ever wondered why lab work seems to take so long? It is not widely known but dentists at home often use the services of dental laboratories abroad. The reasons are two-fold – obviously this increases your dentist's profit margins considerably, but also with many labs having international certification, the craftsmanship and quality of materials is guaranteed to be on a par with dental labs at home.

There is a common belief that overseas dentists use cheap, old technology. However, this couldn't be further from the truth. Many dental clinics abroad are modern and fitted with state-of-the-art gadgetry. It is not uncommon to find clinics fitted with, for instance, intra-oral cameras, digital panoramic x-rays and the latest diagnostic equipment as standard.
For further information see:
We offer very competitive rates and any treatment you have through us will be less than you have been quoted elsewhere. If you are undertaking multiple procedures we guarantee that the price you are quoted will be less than anywhere else.
