Dental Tourism

Dental Tourism in India Having Two Birds (Treatment & Tourism), we will make It Affordable!
Why India
("First World treatment' at Third World prices")

  • Millions of people every year fly from USA and Europe to tourist places in India for a grand holiday and DENTAL TREATMENT. Yes, it’s true.
  • Western World and most other developed countries undoubtedly have the best of medical facilities. But it is also evident there is shortage of medical professionals, long waits in National Health Services (NHS) and governmental facilities elsewhere, high insurance, and the resultant skyrocketing costs of private dental care have all made it unaffordable to hapless most.
  • The costs of dental treatment in the western countries are approximately 10 times more than that in India. With these high costs people have started to club their tours with dental treatments into one, ending up by having a grand holiday in India.
  • Dentists can charge $300 to $400 for a Dental Filling in USA & Europe. It costs only $20 to $40 in India. A Root Canal is $1,000 to $3,000 in the West but only $100 to $200 in India. Dentures can cost $1000 overseas but only $300 in India.
  • Dental treatment in India is inexpensive as compared to the western countries.
  • In Uttarakhand, we have clinics with state to the art equipments and well trained experienced doctors to match the best of international standards.
  • We will offer both general and specialized treatments. We will also club the Dental Treatment with a nice package tour visiting some of the interesting cities/ Places of Uttarakhand.

Dental Care Comparison:

There are several Dental Care packages available. However, these will be based on the requirements of the person and his holiday needs that Dental Care India Tour would be most pleased to cater to. Cost comparison for some of the dental treatment procedures between USA and India may be worth noting. Many of the procedures find a huge difference between the pricing (about 7/8 times when we speak of Top-end dentists)

For long promoted for its cultural and scenic beauty, India is now being put up on international map as a heaven for those seeking quality and affordable healthcare. Analysts say that as many as 150,000 medical tourists came to India in 2009. And there has been a marked improvement in numbers in the year 2010. As Indian corporate hospitals are on par, if not better than the best hospitals in Thailand, Singapore, etc there is scope for improvement, and the country is becoming a preferred medical destination. In addition to the increasingly top class medical care, a big draw for foreign patients is also the very minimal or hardly any waitlist as is common in European or American hospitals.
Leisure Tourism is already very much in demand in India as the country offers diverse cultural and scenic beauty. India has almost all sorts of destinations like high mountains, vast deserts, scenic beaches, historical monuments, religious temples etc. Known for its hospitality for tourists, the county has opened doors to welcome with the same hospitality to medical patients/ service seekers.
In the true Indian tradition of high respect for Senior Citizens, we offer them discount on several dental procedures.
