Why Choose Bali for Dental Care?


Bali’s luxurious and well-established hospitality infrastructure is considered heaven-on-earth for Western tourists. Dental patients need not be afraid that they’re heading into a backwater in the middle of the Indian Ocean with third-world services. In fact, modern dental clinics that cater to international patients tend to be located where international visitors frequent.

Here are some of the reasons why patients choose Bali for dental care:

Highly Skilled Dentists and World-Class Technology

Bali's dental tourism trade has grown fiercely in recent years, with robust competition among clinics to attract international patients. Highly qualified dentists from across the world have elected to call Bali home, and have established practices that cater to the island's dynamic tourism trade. 

Our partner dentists have completed their intensive specialised training from local and international institutions in countries like Australia and New Zealand. They adhere to high health and safety standards - most Bali implantologists are members of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI).

Bali clinics utilise high-quality imported materials and are equipped with the latest dental technology, including 3D scanners, an in-house digital laboratory and milling machines to produce customised prosthodontics - such as crowns and veneers, thus resulting in quicker waiting times for patients. For pain management, injectable anaesthetics, along with oral anti-anxiety and gas sedatives can be offered to make sure every patient feels as comfortable as possible.

Our patients give great marks (in the form of verified reviews) to Kamandhani Dental CareSunset Dental Clinic and Rejuvie Dental Clinic, amongst more than 40 Bali clinics listed on our site.

A Chance to Combine Treatment with a Memorable Holiday

When it comes to combining treatments with leisurely activities, Bali seems to have it all. Renowned for its diverse natural beauty, the "Islands of the Gods" consistently ranks top among the world's most popular leisure travel destinations. Azure-coloured coastlines, unspoiled beaches and verdant landscapes combine to provide a relaxing, stunning backdrop that even the most stressed-out of us will find difficult not to unwind in.

The island is safe, and Balinese people are warm and welcoming. Regardless of your budget, you’ll find value for money wherever you go, even in high-end resorts, hotels, spas and restaurants. Feast on tasty local cuisine or fill up on a variety of flavorful vegetarian dishes.

Culturally, Bali is steeped in spiritualism and artefacts, based on the Hindu and Buddhist religions. Art and religion feature highly throughout the island – in paintings, carvings and other art and handicrafts seen in homes and public areas, as well as intricate and expressive Balinese dances.

Bali’s Travel Tips, Accommodations and More


Where is Bali?

Bali is Indonesia’s most famous island – known for its beautiful beaches, lush greenery, volcanoes and exotic wildlife. It is situated in the Indian Ocean at the most western point of the Lesser Sunda Islands to the north of Western Australia. Its nearest neighbours are Java to the West and Lombok to the East.

Where Should I Stay?

You will not be short on accommodation options when you visit Bali. From five-star luxury to backpacker hostels, you are sure to find lodgings to accommodate your needs.

While the island is not large, a variety of accommodations are available to suit your preferences. Southern Bali is popular with tourists and includes the capital, Denpasar, as well as Kuta Beach, Seminyak and Nusa Dua. 

Northern Bali includes the old Colonial capital, Singaraja and the quieter, black sand beaches in locations like Lovina. Head east for chilled-out coastal villages and Mount Agung. Go west for the West Bali National Park and ferries to nearby Java. 

Central Bali is home to the central mountains and is said to be the cultural heart of Bali.  Excellent dental clinics dot the island, so you're never far away from a few hours of treatment.

Other destinations of interest include Ubud, Tabanan and Gianyar. If you want to explore further, then the southeastern islands, including Nusa Penida, are great for diving.

Is Bali Safe?

Bali has proven quite safe for millions of leisure, business – and medical – tourists who visit the island each year. Most of Indonesia's social and political unrest occurs well away from Bali, and the island's town fathers, dependent upon tourism, have a keen interest in keeping Bali safe. Follow the common-sense rules of the travel road and you can expect to be safe and sound in Bali.

For those seeking additional security and convenience, many of our top clinics offer airport and hotel pickup and drop-off. Please contact our Customer Service Team; we will be happy to accommodate you.

What Happens if Something Goes Wrong? Is the Work Guaranteed?

Our dentists in Bali guarantee their work, as well as lab work on prosthetics, such as crowns, bridges, dentures and dental implants. For any rare incident, Dental Departures will work on your behalf to see issues are put right; however, less than one per cent of our dental patients experience any issues.

What Payment Methods Are Accepted by Bali Dentists?

The official currency in Bali is the Indonesian Rupiah. You will find ATMs and money exchange facilities across the island. Our dentists accept a number of payment methods, including: 

  • cash 
  • traveller's cheques 
  • debit cards 
  • credit cards  
  • bank transfers 

Check the individual clinic listing to learn what methods are accepted.

When is the Best Time to Visit a Dentist in Bali?


Bali’s position near the equator means that temperatures don’t fluctuate much throughout the year. Daytime temperatures average in the high 20’s °C (around 80 °F), although it's often cooler in the mountains. The rainy season is between December and March. While downpours happen in the late afternoon and evening, the daytime tends to be humid and sunny.

The high tourist season is between June and August when the temperatures are coolest and rainfall not so plentiful. If travelling during these months, you will want to book your dental appointment and lodging well in advance.

Is Bali Wheelchair Accessible?

Wheelchair access throughout Bali is somewhat hit-and-miss. The newer high-end resorts in Nusa Dua and Sanur tend to be more accessible for wheelchairs compared to the resorts in the south, like Kuta and Seminyak. In the modern resorts, you are likely to find wide paving and ground-level accessibility to shops and restaurants, whereas many of the older resorts will have steps and often no sidewalks. 

Our network of Bali dentists offers services to help patients coordinate wheelchair assistance.

What is the Language in Bali? Do Dentists Speak English?

Most Balinese are fluent in several languages; English is among the most common foreign languages in use. Because our best dentists rely heavily on English-speaking visitors from Australia and New Zealand, along with ex-pats in the region, you will have no difficulty communicating throughout your treatment. Similarly, English is spoken at Bali's hotels and restaurants, particularly in the main tourist venues.

What Else Is There to See and Do in Bali?

Most visitors to Bali arrive in South Bali at Denpasar’s international airport. From there, it is only a short taxi ride to the popular beaches, like Kuta Beach and the nightlife. If you enjoy water sports, surfing and sunbathing, this area will certainly appeal. 

For other interests, the nearby island Lombok – Bali’s less-developed neighbour – provides stunning landscapes for walking and trekking, as well as activities including wind-surfing, fishing and snorkelling. Be sure to schedule physically strenuous activities before any major dental procedure.

Culturally, Bali is rich in history and tradition, offering plenty of opportunities to sample its crafts and enjoy performing arts in quaint villages. Take in the serenity of the island’s many temples, mosques and shrines and immerse yourself in the spectacular and varied scenery, including active volcanoes, rice terraces and unspoiled forests. 

Outdoor activities are popular in Bali – particularly water-based – with numerous white-water rafting companies for the particularly adventurous. Kayaking is also an option – both downriver and lake kayaking. Golf courses and tennis abound in many of the large hotels. 

Eco-tours have caught on – you can go dolphin-watching or Komodo dragon-watching with kids of all ages at the Bali Reptile Park. Horse riding, elephant safaris, cycling and paragliding off the windy cliffs at Uluwatu – endless possibilities make Bali's appeal easy to see.

Getting to Bali

Most visitors fly into the international airport in Denpasar – also known as Ngurah Rai International (DPS). Flights around the globe arrive daily; connections to the rest of the island, as well as Southeast Asia, are ample. Regional discount airlines offer low fares and robust flight options from all over Asia and Oceania.

Flying Times to Bali from Other Parts of the World:

  • Sydney, Australia – 6 hours
  • Auckland, New Zealand – 11.5 hours
  • London, UK – 16 hours
  • Los Angeles, USA – 22.5 hours
  • New York, USA – 25 hours
  • Toronto, Canada – 20 hours

Getting Around in Bali

This densely populated island is home to around 4.4 million inhabitants, making the roads extremely crowded. The best way to get around town and avoid massive traffic jams is by renting a scooter, for which you’ll need an international driver’s license. The other means of getting around Bali is renting a car, or by bus (Bemo) - while cheap, are designed to suit the needs of local people rather than tourists and are virtually non-existent after dark. 

Tourist shuttles travel regularly between popular destinations, although you may need to book these in advance. Taxis are cheap and plentiful but make sure that the meter is being used - go with the blue taxi (Blue Bird Taxi) whenever possible as they are known to be the most honest. Uber is not available in Bali, but similarly, you can use Indonesian ride-sharing apps like Grab or Go-Jek. 

Tourist Visas

There are three options for tourists entering Indonesia:

  • No visa required. Many countries, including Australia, New Zealand, the US, UK and most of Europe can enter the country at no charge for 30 days. This visa is not extendable.
  • Visa on arrival (around USD $35). If you intend to stay longer than 30 days, this option allows you to extend your visa.
  • Nationals from countries that require a visa must apply prior to arrival before arriving in Indonesia.

  • Visa on arrival (around USD $35). If you intend to stay longer than 30 days, this option allows you to extend your visa.
  • Nationals from countries that require a visa must apply prior to arrival before arriving in Indonesia.
