Pattaya: One Of Leading Dental Tourism Destinations

Thailand's Nong Nooch Tropical Botanical Garden

One of the hottest beach-resort destinations in Thailand, Pattaya may not be idyllic but it certainly makes up for it with a wide variety of activities, accommodation and nightlife venues.

Pattaya is a popular beach resort on the Gulf of Thailand just 150 km. southeast of Bangkok - a mere two-hour drive. Pattaya’s pulsating nightlife is well known, but local authorities have, in recent years, improved the quality of the beaches and reinvented the resort as a more family-friendly destination. Today, hundreds of thousands of visitors are drawn each year to Pattaya to windsurf, water ski, swim, sunbathe, snorkel, sail, or take trips to nearby islands. Other activities include Bungee jumping, cycling, skydiving, go-Karting, Muay Thai (Thai boxing), and Paintball. Golfers, both novice and expert, are well catered to as well, with a wide selection of golf courses around Pattaya.

Another major draw for visitors to Pattaya is the wide selection of restaurants serving some of Thailand's freshest seafood. Due to the high number of expatriate foreigners in Pattaya there is also an excellent selection of authentic foreign eateries serving French, Italian, Swiss, German, Hungarian, Scandinavian, English, Indian, Arabic, Japanese, and Chinese cuisine.

Tbilisi: One of the Most Charming Cities

Georgia's Centennial Olympic Park

It is no surprise that Georgia, a former state within the former USSR, is becoming a player in the dental tourism industry. Given a well-trained professional class, early adopters for technology, and an enthusiasm that is evident in many emerging countries, one can expect to see Tbilisi and Georgia continue to ride the wave for years to come. 

Georgia sits on the southeastern edge of the Black Sea, a border that abuts Russia, with Turkey to Georgia's southwest, Armenia due south, and Azerbaijan to the southeast. 

Travelers flying into Georgia for dental treatment usually get their work done in the capital city of Tbilisi, known as one of the most charming cities in Eurasia. In fact, its charm, sophistication and relaxed culture have resulted in it being referred to as “the Paris of Eurasia.” 

And the clinics are full-service as in other parts of Europe offering deep cleaning, extractions, Panoramic 360 x-rays, implants and dentures, or just about anything dental one can think of.  The unit of account or invoices is in Euros. However, the cost is affordable as operating expenses are structurally less than in the high tax jurisdictions on western Europe so one can expect to pay a fraction of the cost of a high cost country.  

Britons Travel for Cosmetic Dental Care

Britons Travel for Cosmetic Dental Care

Cost and Quality push Britons to travel for dental care

With fewer NHS dentists, longer waiting times and rising costs of private treatment, more and more Britons are opting to travel abroad for dental treatment, with Hungary being the top destination.

The cost of private dental treatment in the UK is steadily on the rise and has already risen beyond the means of many patients. To give an example, the cost of a dental implant can cost anywhere between £1,800 - £3,000 whereas in Hungary they are almost half the price at £580. In Budapest root canal treatment and a crown fitting can be done for £250 whereas that same procedure would set you back around £800 in the UK. It is evident that even with the cost of flights and accommodation the savings are substantial, considering you can also enjoy a bit of a holiday at the same time.

Women and Dental Tourism

Women and Dental Tourism

The dental tourism industry often shows a bias toward men, either by accident or in some cases on purpose. And from reading the literature one would think it is only the men who are interested in a perfect smile but that myth misses the mark: women are just as interested in a perfect smile as the men. And the truth is that women make up almost 50% of dental tourism clientele and thus women deserve more credit for driving a growing industry worldwide. And in the later years women are often the catalyst for couples who want to travel together and enjoy cosmetic or restorative dental services at an affordable price. 

Bargains and Dental Tourism - Women Lead

It's a running stereotype that women spend more money than men. In truth this is not always the case. Quite often women are more in tune with what constitutes a reasonable price, women know how to ask for discounts and bargains, and they generally follow through once an agreement is made. And gender aside, everyone wants a quality bargain when it comes to self-pay dental work such as implants, veneers, crowns, or any type of cosmetic dentistry. And this is especially true for those from cost-prohibitive places like the UK, Canada, the United States,and Australia where even those with some dental insurance coverage have only a few options and not all procedures are covered.
