Dental tourism is a subset of the sector known as medical tourism. It involves individuals seeking dental care outside their local healthcare systems and may be accompanied by a vacation.
In 2012, it was estimated that approximately 1.2 million Americans traveled outside of the United States to seek healthcare and 42 percent of those patients traveled abroad for dental needs. The term dental tourism may sound strange and exotic to some people; but in fact it is a rapidly growing phenomenon Spurred on by an increasingly empowered patient base searching for quality, affordability, availability, and accessibility in dentistry. Some people have the erroneous impression that patients are flying for dental surgery to a dilapidated jungle clinic in some third world country - followed by bungee jumping. The opposite is true. Most patients are receiving care in high-end clinics located in major urban centers, and will plan their trip to allow enough time for a prudent recuperation period before heading home. Regardless of the reason, the common denominator in all dental tourism related activities is that patients are traveling away from their home region to access these services.
Dentem has a large influx of patients especially travelling to us for their dental treatment especially aligners and dental implants.
