Medical Tourism For Densitry: What Do You Think?
A close friend found out that they need a dental implant, some crowns replaced, deep cleaning and some fillings repaired. The total bill will be in the $10,000 range. Money is pretty tight. Should they get this work done via medical tourism?
The whole thing (airfare and a week of luxury accomodations included) might cost $4,000 overseas.
Of course, there are issues like that right now it’s difficult to get to Bumrungrad hospital in Thailand because of political unrest…. hmmm. :-(
Your friend might consider checking out the nearest dental school. In DC, Howard University has a dental clinic open to the public that provides for treatment by dental students under faculty supervision. The work may take longer than with a regular dentist, but the cost is much less. I’ve had very good experience with them.
India was actually on my list of places to go…I need a couple of crowns and perhaps a root canal, and one implant…so says my dentist.
Wohin bist Du in Indien gegangen, Tobias? Meine ich genua zu welchem Zaharzt? Danke im Voraus!

No problem to worry about political unrest. There’s not such serious problem about that in Thailand now.
