Travelling outside of Indonesia is one of your most viable options when seeking high quality, affordable, and quick dental procedures including dental implants, dental crowns and bridges, root canal, or treatments for wide range of periodontal diseases.
Going on medical travel is a huge decision and to make sure you make well-informed choices, there are factors that you need to seriously consider. One is the cost. Search for the cost of the procedure you require in top Southeast Asian countries including Singapore, Thailand, and South Korea. There are websites of popular dental clinics in these countries that allow you to compare rates. You’ll also need to factor-in travel and accommodation costs.
Quality of service is another factor to consider. Most dental clinics in Southeast Asia that cater to foreign patients provide high quality services, especially if they are associated with the medical tourism industry. Singapore, in particular, guarantees better quality service due to its world-class healthcare system, long list of internationally trained dentists, and state-of-the-art dental equipment and facilities.
Waiting time should also be considered. Dentists in South Korea and Singapore offer quick service and they can accommodate you at a moment’s notice.
If you’re satisfied with the cost and services, you’ll need to do a bit of research on the dentist who will provide you treatment. Check with their country’s dental associations and confirm that the dentist is a member. These associations will have websites that will either provide a list of their members, or provide contact information where you can send your inquiry.
