Dental work abroad

#1
Anyone have any experience of this?
Looking at prices for implants which are a fraction of the cost in the U.K (a holiday too!)
Seems to be a lot of people flogging the idea, particularly in Budapest

I know someone that went abroad, will get details. I know he was very happy with the outcome.

To add: He went to Hungary. Will get details about where, and with whom.

He's in a wheelchair. The new teeth might make him more attractive to the opposite sex but his c0ck still won't work.
Ha Ha I thought you meant the dental work put him in a chair!

About 3 years ago, my wife flew to Capetown to visit her sister and whilst there had a couple of crowns and a filling.

The total cost of the return flight and the dentist's charges was only a couple of hundred pounds more than if she had had her teeth fixed in the UK, and the work was very high quality.

So, to those who can - go abroad and have a bit of a holiday also.

N.H.S dentistry in this country is a national disgrace and has been for the last 10 years. There has been very little if any effort by Government to properly address the problem and "importing" eastern europeans in by the bucket full to take over from British dentists because they (British dentists) see money in the private sector more appealing then the welfare of their patents is a case of pure personal greed and is ethically and morally wrong in the medical world.

Ah but don 't forget they will pick up the pieces (no pun intended) for free if your overseas operation goes wrong.

Hungary has some excellent dentists and if you drive over the border from Austria, at most points there is a dental hotel. If you go to Budapest then you are paying Capitol City prices. Better to to go one of the smaller towns. Even with the pound being crap, it's still a good deal. I recently had 3 white fillings private and it cost me a total of about 30 quid.

I had £7000 of dental work done in thailand over 12mths. flight cost £550, lived like a king for £70/wk.

12mths holiday, top quality dental work, only one NSI and it was still cheaper than UK.

Think budapest, etc is cheaper than thailand, but the chics ain't got such cute little brown bums tho...

Dentist was in Bangkok if u want a recommendation, although i was based mainly in Pattaya (Babylon), but did Island, mountain & cambodian excursions too.

Don't tell me they were still asking you to select which gold teeth you wanted?

Indeed. Mate of mine married a Polish bint who hails from Krakow couple of years ago and has had all of his dental work done there ever since. His Polish dentist used to work in UK and never stops telling him how entirely crap and expensive British NHS dentistry is and we only put up with it because we know no better.

Absolutely agree, but my answer has to be because a free market has lead to unbridled greed of dentists.
Unbridled greed eh? And all because of the free market? Nothing to do with the inability of NHS dentisty to meet the needs of the country back in the 1940's? It's nice to blame the lack of dentists on greed and economics but the reality is that the NHS does not want to provide adult patients with dental services and hasn't for over 50 years. Clicky

I was doing a job in Abu Dhabi and needed some work done.

By the luck of who knows what, the Crown Prince's dentist (Swedish and called Elizabeth) worked out of my hotel (Corniche Hilton) and she went to work. Quite spectacular and a lot cheaper than the UK.

She literally shuddered when I opened my mouth and mentioned that she had heard about the poor quality of British dentists but now she believed it.
