YES WE SPEAK ENGLISH
trip to the dentist takes on new meaning these days.
Last year over a quarter of a million Americans packed
their suitcases and their toothbrushes and traveled to
foreign countries for dental work. Your average tourist
might not equate a vacation with serious dental work,
but my friend Joan managed to reconcile the oxymoronic
concept AND save a few bucks.
Joan’s dental adventure began when a hearty sneeze
dislodged a bridge out of her mouth—never to be seen
again. After consulting with her dentist, she decided
she didn’t want to have another bridge put in, opting
for implants instead. She also needed a crown
replacement on a molar tooth. She was stunned to learn
that her estimated total cost would be between $7,500
Joan’s dental policy didn’t cover the work she wanted,
so she began investigating alternatives.
, the cost savings were amazing. Estimates for the work
needed ranged from between $1,900 to $2,400. She used
frequent flyer miles for the flight, and the clinic
recommended a lovely apartment hotel 8 blocks away in
the heart of Panama City, for only $60/night. Joan spent
a week in Panama City, and managed to squeeze in a trip
to the rain forest, a coffee plantation tour, a little
shopping, some pool lounging, and some great,
inexpensive dinners, in between her trips back and forth
to the clinic for her dental work.
Dental Tourism is a growing travel trend that promises
low cost, high quality dental work to cost-conscious
and/or uninsured consumers. It’s part of a larger trend
called Medical Tourism. 800,000 Americans traveled
overseas for health care in 2008.
Interestingly, dental bridges and bonding ranked #1 and
#2 on a list of most sought-after procedures for
Americans traveling abroad for medical care.
