Dentists in Murcia

The Ultimate Guide to Dentists in Murcia

Last fact-checked: 16 July 2021

With direct, inexpensive flights from the UK and a convenient location close to Spain’s spectacular southeastern coastline, the historic city of Murcia is an underrated destination for low-cost, safe dental care.

If you’re looking to skip the long waiting lists to see a dentist back home while saving up to 70% on treatments like veneers, dental implants, teeth whitening, crowns and dentures, a combined dental holiday to Murcia could be an ideal solution.

Visiting Murcia, Spain as a Dental Tourist

As Spain’s seventh-largest city, Murcia is the capital and most populous city of the namesake province in the southeast of the country.

The Murcia Region borders Alicante to the north and Almeria to the south, and is also home to Cartagena, a popular port city that’s home to one of the largest Roman archaeological sites in Spain.

Dental Departures has partnered with some of the top clinics both in the city of Murcia and the surrounding area; each one has passed our strict background checks and vetting process, which includes:

  • Carrying out onsite visits to inspect facilities, ensuring dental centers adopt the latest advances in dental technology, such as CAD/CAM (computer-assisted design/computer-assisted manufacture) technology.

  • Verification of licenses: every dentist in Spain listed on our site is registered with the Consejo Dentista de Colegios de Odontólogos y Estomatólogos (General Council of Colleges of Dentistry and Stomatology of Spain).

  • Verification of professional memberships, such as the Spanish Society of Periodontology and Osseointegration.

  • Ensuring clinics adhere to European Union-wide regulations on hygiene best practices and infection preventionInterviewing past patients about their experience at each clinic, with dentist reviews published on our site.

  • Ensuring that clinic photos are accurate, and other information—such as making sure addresses and opening times are up-to-date.

We also guarantee that you’ll get the best rates available online; if you find a lower price for the same treatment at the same dentist in Murcia, we’ll match it.

And as for those savings? You can expect discounts between 50% and 70% compared to prices in the UK. This can equate to savings of a few hundred pounds on treatments like teeth whitening or individual veneers—definitely not to be sniffed, especially if you were already planning a holiday here anyway.

For other more expensive procedures, like the All-on-4® treatment concept in Spain, it’s possible to make overall savings of 10 or even 20 thousand pounds—even after taking into account travel expenses.

Murcia & Spain Travel Information

Located on the Segura River in the southeast of Spain’s Iberian Peninsula, Murcia is a laid-back city offering a number of interesting cultural and historical attractions to make for a pleasant city break for a few days.

Much like the neighboring Alicante and Almeria Regions, Murcia has long, hot summers, mild winters, promising more than 3,000 hours of sunshine a year.

This area is well known for its huerta, a large zone of fruit and vegetable gardens and farms surrounding the city that dates back to Moorish times. These supply many of the city's restaurants with world-class produce, making it a popular spot for foodies traveling in search of some of the finest tapas, paella and barbeque in Spain.

With an international airport receiving direct flights from across Europe, Murcia is a great base from where tourists can travel to nearby coastal cities, resorts and sleepy fishing villages on the Mediterranean Sea.

Popular coastal destinations that are a short drive from the city include Cartagena, Mazarron, San Pedro del Pinatar and Cabo de Paros.
