Dentists in Spain offer excellent treatment for UK patients looking to make a saving on dental procedures like implants and the All-on-4® treatment concept. But low prices are not the only reason dental tourism is booming in Spain.
Here are four good reasons why you should leave Britain behind and visit a Spanish dentist for your smile makeover.
1. Pay Less for Dental Implants in Spain Compared to the UK
One simple fact is that dental implants in Spain are cheaper than in the UK, and here is a quick breakdown of just how much you could save: a single dental implant at a UK dentist costs on average £2,928, whereas the price at one of our top-rated Spanish dentists is just £1,086.
Even at more expensive Spanish dental clinics where the price is £1,574, you are still saving around 50% on UK dental implant prices.
2. Spanish Dentistry is Regulated and Accessible for UK Citizens
Every qualified dentist in Spain should be registered with the Spanish Dental Association, and registration requires that the dentist has a degree from a recognised Spanish university. All the Spanish dentists listed here at Dental Departures are registered, and we handpick dental clinics that have experience with treating overseas patients.
Many Spanish dentists also speak English so they can easily communicate with visitors from across the British Isles.
3. Visiting a Spanish Dentist from the UK is Easy
UK residents visit Spain more than any other country in the world, with around 15.9 million travelling there in 2017. Airlines know this, so they offer frequent routes from a huge number of UK airports to cities all over Spain.
Not only should you be able to find a flight to Spain from your closest airport, but you can also get a real bargain on flights from the UK.
4. Enjoy a Holiday in Spain After Your Dental Treatment
Dental holidays in Spain can be as much about sangria and sunshine as your actual dental treatment. Visit a beach resort to soak up some rays or visit a historic city like Madrid to experience authentic Spanish culture.
You could even time your trip to coincide with a unique annual festival, like the huge tomato fight of La Tomatina in Buñol!
Four of the Best Dental Clinics in Spain
Located in the university city of Murcia, the Velez and Lozano Dental Office has treated over 3,500 patients from across Spain and Europe since it opened for business 10 years ago. The multi-disciplinary team of dentists here speaks both Spanish and English, and the All-on-4® treatment concept costs just £5,025.
Apadent Dental Care is headed by Dr. Juan Carlos Garcia Aparicio, who started the practice in 1986. This professional dental clinic in Teulada is easily reached from the nearby cities of Alicante and Benidorm, and everything from general dentistry to orthodontics is available here. The price for a titanium dental implant, including an abutment and crown, is £1,088.
Another excellent Spanish dental clinic is Crooke & Laguna Malaga, where Dr. Eduardo Crooke practices. He trained in implantology at the University of Gothenburg in Sweden and has opened a number of dental clinics across the Costa del Sol. You can expect to pay £7,604 if you decide to have your All-on-6 treatment carried out here.
Barcelona is a city that needs no introduction, but you may not have heard of Nart Dental Clinic. This Dental Departures Verified Clinic in the Catalonian capital is directed by Dr. Jose Nart, who trained at Tufts University in Boston. Expect bilingual staff and state-of-the-art facilities when you book an appointment here. For a complete titanium dental implant, the price starts at £1,491.
