South Africa is a multi-ethnic society encompassing a wide variety of cultures, languages, and religions. Its pluralistic makeup is reflected in the constitution's recognition of 11 official languages, which is among the highest number of any country in the world. Two of these languages are of European origin: Afrikaans developed from Dutch and serves as the first language of most white and colored South Africans; English reflects the legacy of British colonialism, and is commonly used in public and commercial life.

Dental Tourism – Egypt

Egypt's Abu Simbel Temples

Country Profile

Egypt, officially the Arab Republic of Egypt, is a transcontinental country and has among the longest histories of any modern country, emerging as one of the world's first nation states in the tenth millennium BC. Considered a cradle of civilization, Ancient Egypt experienced some of the earliest developments of writing, agriculture, urbanization, organized religion and central government. Egypt's rich cultural heritage is an integral part of its national identity, which has endured, and at times assimilated various foreign influences and is one of the earliest centres of Christianity. Egypt was Islamized in the seventh century and remains a predominantly Muslim country, albeit with a significant Christian minority.

Dental Tourism - Russia 

Russia's Red Square

Country Profile

Russia, also officially known as the Russian Federation, is a country in Eurasia. Russia's capital Moscow is one of the largest cities in the world. Russia spans eleven time zones and incorporates a wide range of environments and land forms. Russia's extensive mineral and energy resources are the largest such reserves in the world, making it one of the leading producers of oil and natural gas globally.

The enormous size of Russia and the remoteness of many areas from the sea result in the dominance of the humid continental climate, which is prevalent in all parts of the country except for the tundra and the extreme southeast. Mountains in the south obstruct the flow of warm air masses from the Indian Ocean, while the plain of the west and north makes the country open to Arctic and Atlantic influences.
