Q: What are the benefits of getting dental treatment in Turkey?
A: It gives you quick access to the treatment you need. Wait times for dentists in the UK are long, meaning those living with the discomfort of oral pain have to wait longer for the surgery they need. Problems with your teeth can affect your confidence and your ability to smile, but getting a quick cosmetic dental treatment can help you feel more confident and share your smile with everyone.
You can also get your dental treatment while enjoying a great vacation in Antalya, enjoying the glorious sunshine, fabulous beaches and many enchanting sights.
Q: Is dental treatment cheaper in Turkey than in the UK?
A: Absolutely. Many people are unaware that dental clinics in Turkey offer some of the most affordable prices, allowing patients to save up to 80% on treatment, including travel costs. We’ll provide you with free accommodation during your stay, helping you keep prices low.
Q: Who should benefit from dental treatment abroad and what services do you offer?
A: Dental treatment abroad is available for people of all ages with dental problems of all kinds. Medical tourism is increasingly part of our lives. The number of people traveling abroad for dental treatment is expected to increase over the next few years.
We offer a full range of services, from regular check-ups to tailor-made orthodontic treatments, including smile transformation and the placement of dental implants or veneers. Using the highest quality materials and the latest technologies, such as panoramic X-rays and 3D tomography, we can adapt your dental treatment to your needs, providing optimal and long-lasting results.
Q: How can you access dental care in Turkey and what follow-up care will be available?
A: Before you come to the clinic, we will recommend the best treatment for you and provide cost estimate through online consultation. You can then decide if you want to continue.
We will inform you of the appointment dates so that you can book your flights. You can let us handle the rest of your travel arrangements, including your accommodation and airport transfers.
After you arrive in Antalya, we will meet to discuss your treatment plan and explain each of the procedures so you know what to expect. We offer a worry-free guarantee for the first year after treatment and a four-year guarantee for crowns and dental veneers. Our dental implants are guaranteed for life.
Patients can access aftercare services at our clinic in Antalya. After your treatment, we will advise you on the best way to take care of your teeth and arrange any follow-up consultations as needed.
Q: Is it safe to get dental treatment in Turkey?
A: Naturally, it can be a bit nerve-wracking to seek treatment abroad, so spending time researching clinics and asking questions before booking a consultation can put your mind at rest.
I recommend researching a clinic’s certifications, their dentist’s experience, and testimonials from previous patients. This will help ensure that you receive only the highest quality care.
Our dentists are experts in their chosen fields and specialize in many areas of dentistry. You can view their resumes on our website. Our aim is to provide as much detail as possible about the treatment online, so that it is simple for you to find the information you need and make an informed decision.
Our clinic is a member of the Turkish Dental Association and has a medical tourism certificate and ISO9001, ensuring that we meet high customer standards and regulatory requirements. You can also explore reviews from previous patients on Trustpilot for a first-hand account of their experience with us.
We go the extra mile to ensure that every patient has the best dental experience and receives top quality treatment that will keep your mouth pain free, your teeth healthy and your smile radiant.
