Spring is here, the weather is improving, this is the best time for a smile makeover. Have you already decided to go on a dental holiday, but just haven’t got around to organizing it yet? Are you frightened by all the hassle a dental treatment abroad comes with? Don’t be! We’ll break it down for you step by step.
1) Book an appointment
The first thing to do is to book an appointment with a dentist. We recommend going to Budapest, Hungary, as it is currently the leading city to get dental treatments in, and has many dental clinics specializing in dental tourism. Getting an appointment is as simple as making a phone call to a dental tourism agency, and finding a day and time that is right for you.
2) Buy the tickets
After the date has been set for your appointment in Budapest, the next step is to buy the airline tickets. Buying these as soon as possible is recommended, as tickets tend to get more expensive the closer the departure date gets. Many dental tourism agencies will even book a ticket for you, if you wish.
3) Accommodations and what to bring
Accommodations are very important, especially if you are going to be getting extensive dental work done. You will want a place that is quiet and comfortable. There are many hotels, hostels and apartments for rent on short term leases in Budapest, and you should not have any problem finding a place to stay during your dental holiday. Dental tourism companies can also help you in finding a location, and can recommend good accommodations. Bring a book, and clothing appropriate for the seasons. Hungary is cold in the winter and warm in the summer. Always check the weather forecast and dress accordingly.
4) In Budapest
Budapest is a metropolitan, European city with a history that stretches back more than a thousand years. There are many museums, historical landmarks and interesting places to see. It is one of the greenest cities in Europe and has plenty of opportunities for hiking and sightseeing, has wonderful international and local cuisine, and a bustling nightlife. You may want to take it easy and spend the time recovering. There are many spas with healing properties and nice small parks to visit as well, and no shortage of indoor activities.
With cheaper prices for high quality dentistry just a phone call away, now is the best time to take advantage of dental tourism. Whether a smile makeover, dental implant, oral surgery or even orthodontics, dental tourism is an easy, safe way to save money on dental bills.
