Collaborative Post | As we age, it becomes increasingly important to take care of our dental health. Dental problems such as gum disease and tooth decay can lead to serious health issues, which is why it's important to have access to affordable and high-quality dental care.
Turkey has been gaining popularity as a dental tourism destination in recent years. This is due to the high standard of service that is received for a fraction of the price back home. And, it doesn’t hurt that getting your teeth done in Turkey also means, well, a trip to Turkey…
The problem with UK dental care
Whilst we Brits have a stereotype for having bad teeth, studies show it’s not necessarily the case. However, another misconception is that just because we have the NHS, trips to the dentist are free. We wish.
NHS dentists aren’t free for adults. They’re fairly low-cost if you’re lucky enough to be on the list, but availability is tight at the moment. Most people are forced to go private either for cosmetic dental treatments, or simply because they’re not with an NHS dentist. Unsurprisingly, the price of private dentistry is through the roof.
Another stereotype that exists is with Turkey Teeth - a very sparkly bright set of veneers that isn’t to everyone’s taste. But, that says more about the people going over for treatment than it does about the state of Turkey’s dental care - ultimately, you get what you ask for, and that’s not the only thing on the menu.
One of the main reasons why Turkey is a go-to destination for dental treatments is the availability of highly qualified and experienced dental professionals. Many of Turkey's dentists have received their training in top dental schools in Europe and the United States, and they are highly skilled in a variety of dental procedures. It’s just a matter of getting a cheaper service.
Compared to the United States and many European countries, dental treatments in Turkey are significantly cheaper. A quarter of the price, in many cases. This is due to the lower cost of living and the lower salaries of dental professionals in Turkey.
If you're concerned about the quality of dental care in Turkey, you'll be happy to know that the country has strict regulations governing dental practices. The Turkish Ministry of Health closely monitors dental clinics to ensure that they meet strict standards for hygiene, safety, and quality of care.
Combine it with a holiday
Of course, it’s not all about the teeth. A trip to Turkey is somewhat more interesting than your local dentistry practice. Culturally rich with great weather. Many of the best dentist practices are located in tourist-friendly cities like Istanbul and Antalya. It’s amazing to think that you can have a holiday with your treatment and it’s still much cheaper than the same treatment at home.
Final word ... Turkey is a great destination for dental treatments for those looking for high-quality and affordable dental care. The country boasts highly skilled dental professionals who use the latest technology and equipment, and the cost of dental treatments is significantly lower than in many other countries. When combining it with a week's holiday, it’s no wonder why it’s a popular phenomenon.
