Dental Tourism in India - All you need to know

Tourism has evolved to take many forms in the past several decades. From sightseeing to health, tourism attracts people from all around the world for multiple reasons. With India’s culture and heritage, it has been one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. Now, with the advancement in technology and science, India is one of the preferred destinations for medical tourism, particularly dental tourism.

People travel around the world looking for affordable dental treatment. The high cost of Dental Procedures and treatment in the western countries, especially the US, UK , Australia and New Zealand is the primary reason why they look to travel to other countries. They spend an outstanding $300 million every year for medical expenses. Medical tourism has become the most affordable option to the people from the West.

In this scenario, India has been in demand  for dental tourism. It attracts foreign nationals because of the quality treatment provided by world-class doctors at affordable prices. For example, a simple root canal costs up to 700 to 1,500 USD  in the US while it costs only about 200 to 500 USD in India. Moreover, the doctors are the best of the best, India is known for hospitality, treatment is affordable and, better yet, they get to experience the roots of India while getting their teeth in the best shape. Reasons to choose India for dental tourism are many.
