Dental tourism has seen a big boom over the past few years, as patients from the European Union and the US are now traveling abroad for better quality dental care. This is mainly attributed to the inconsistent quality of local dental care and to the relatively high cost of cosmetic dentistry in the west..
Moreover, the very long waiting period and non-availability of insurance coverage also encourage patients to travel to other countries for dental treatment. Since many international clinics offer proficient dental care with low-cost dental treatments, it has led to a boom in the growth of dental tourism.
According to Adroit Market Research, the global dental tourism market is expected to grow at a 12% CAGR to reach $5.83 billion by 2025. There are a few popular destinations across the world that offer affordable and efficient dental care treatments to patients.
If we talk about the premium destination then Dubai is a suitable choice for dental patients to seek solutions for their dental issues. Most European and American dental patients search for a high quality dental lab in Dubai before reaching out to a dentist to ensure high quality dental products are used to create the perfect, long lasting smile.
Abu Dhabi is an alternative premium destination popular among EU and US-based patients. For budget and alternative budget destinations, dental patients prefer to visit Mexico and Philippines respectively.
The excellent dental care provided at affordable prices by dental clinics at these destinations is making them popular among visitors from developed countries. Additionally, the use of modern technology coupled with the presence of expert dental technicians is booming the popularity of dental tourism across the globe.
