Anybody traveling abroad for dental care for the first time will, naturally, be apprehensive. However, there are always ways of mitigating any risk and that goes for choosing a dentist at home, as well as abroad. Sub-standard dental care can happen anywhere—even at home—but the difference at home is that you are likely to find that out from friends, family and neighbors, which isn’t a luxury you’ll have when choosing a dentist abroad.
This is where Dental Departures comes in. We personally conduct background checks to make sure that you will be seen at a reliable facility where the credentials stack up. Our checks include legal/criminal checks and onsite visits, as well as verifying dentist qualifications and professional memberships. We also collect real patient reviews which are published on our site, along with clinic photos, maps and prices.

What Type of Dentures Will I Need?
● You will need a full denture if you have no teeth at all in either your upper or lower jaw.
● If you have several gaps in your teeth due to tooth loss, you will need partial dentures .
● If you have recently had extractions, you will need to have a lighter denture to give your mouth time to heal. This is known as an immediate or healing denture.
The process to receive your new dentures in Colombia should take between five and seven days.
During your first visit to the dentist in Colombia, a thorough history, examination and x-rays or other diagnostic scans will be taken. The dentist will take impressions of your mouth, which are sent to a laboratory so they can make your dentures to fit. Once the dentist has received your dentures back from the lab, you can return to have them fitted. After your dentist has made any minor adjustments, you can be on your way to enjoying the rest of your holiday.
