What is Health Tourism ?

People from all over the world travel to different countries for certain time intervals for treatment purposes. The nutrition, accommodation, recreation and entertainment requirements of the countries where people visit during these trips have given birth to a type of tourism that is now called health tourism.

The aim of health tourism is to provide the comfort of patients and their relatives and to provide medical facilities.

Private health institutions play an important role in health tourism. Private health institutions provide 91% of health tourism services, while 9% are provided by public hospitals. Oral and dental health treatments constitute one of the sectors that receive the most demand in health tourism.  When health tourism data are examined in the world, it is seen that dental tourism constitutes 25% of health tourism.

How Does The Process Work In Dental Tourism?

The most curious question for patients is how does the dental tourism process work?  How this process will work and how to determine the right treatment method is an issue that patients are curious about and is also important for travel planning.

This process, with the exception of some exceptional circumstances, takes place as follows:

  1. The patient digitally sends the examinations, X-ray images and information about the treatment he / she had done in his / her own country to the health institution he/she has chosen.
  2. The doctor reviews the sent examinations and health information and plans a treatment.
  3. The patient who applies for treatment in the field of cosmetic dentistry is informed about the planned treatment, duration of treatment and total cost.
  4. If the patient accepts the planned treatment, an appointment is arranged and the patient makes a travel plan accordingly.

In this context, treatment times vary according to existing dental problems, some last a few days, while others can take several weeks.

Dental prostheses take the first place among the treatments that come to the fore in dental health tourism. The main reason for this is that the cost of dental implants and porcelain crowns is too high in developed countries. You can have a treatment of equivalent esthetic and quality in Europe at Marmara Smile Dental Clinic at a considerably lower cost than the cost there, and you can have the opportunity to have a holiday with your budget. Marmara Smile Dental Clinic offers high quality and comfortable dental treatments with state-of-the-art devices and superior health services.
