Find The Best Seniors Dental Vacation Countries, Dental Tourism Prices for Dental Implants, Cosmetic Dentistry, Oral Restoration & more

What can you do when your teeth skip out on you? Don't mortgage the farm - take a dental vacation!

By David R. Mandich Health Care Writer

Seniors and other cost conscious patients are leaving the US and Canada for new smiles in Mexico and Asia. They are finding low-cost, high-quality dentistry in far off exotic places where it's always warm and the mai tai's, margaritas and beer are cold year around.

Oral restoration and dental implants are often half or less than the cost in these places vs. dentists back in the US, Canada or in other western developed nations. Same materials, same dental chairs, training and digital sterilizers.

Dental implants costing $4-8,000us in the US cost only $2-2,500. complete by board certified dentists in Asia and Mexico using name brand dental implants like Nobel Biocare. Board certified dentist associations can refer you to the best dentists in your preferred dental holiday destination.

You can save up to 75% on your oral restoration on a dental vacation. For some seniors that translate to a savings of $25,000 - $50,000.

An oral restoration can involve dental implants, sinus lift surgery, mini implant secured bridges, crowns, veneers, periodontal work and more. 

The cost can be $45,000us to $100,000 in pricey US clinics where the staff wear black, there's marble and leather everywhere and photos by celebs on the salon walls. Don't be seduced. 

Whereas (roll the drums please) a full-mouth restoration will run $12,000 to $25,000 in Asia or Mexico depending on the procedures involved.

Manila dentists speak perfect English as American English is the national language in the Philippines. The travel experience for those who haven’t visited Asia is priceless. And in Manila - you won't have to know how to say "ouch" in Chinese or Malaysian.

San Diego is one of America’s favorite vacation spots and is just across the border from Tijuana. You stay and play in San Diego while you have your cosmetic dentistry, oral restoration or dental implants 15 minutes down the highway in Tijuana.

 Tijuana has theaters, malls, fine restaurants, clubs, museums, galleries and excellent board certified Mexico dentists in the upscale Zona Rio district.

Puerto Vallarta  dentists  are   popular with  seniors  as the town is  less touristy and more easygoing  than famed party towns Cabo and Cancun. It's also less pricey than Cabo, Cancun or Tijuana for accommodations and dentistry.

Bangkok  and   Manila dentists have been popular with Europeans, Brits and  Aussies  for  decades who enjoy visiting exotic places for a week or two on dental holidays. 

Note: The Thai military  declared martial law in June 2014  after 2 years of  political instability. Many foreign patients are switching to Manila now. Filipinos love Americans and all things American so you will feel right at home in this country.

Wherever you choose to go for  your dental implants or cosmetic dentistry - be sure to choose a board certified dentist. They are the best of the best having spent many extra years in dental specialist colleges learning the advanced dental procedures most dental tourists are searching for. 

Don't get lured  into  a   general  dentist's clinic by fancy advertising, marble floors, ferns or leather sofas in the salon.

Be careful as general dentists in many developing nations (including Mexico) are permitted to attempt advanced dental procedures without certification. And they all want big treatment dental tourism patients they have no business doing.

When you let a general dentist in Mexico or Thailand do your dental makeover - you literally roll the dice as you don't know what your are going to get. But Board Certified Dentist specialists back home and abroad know - for they often redo the work of the un-certified dentists. Ouch. 

 You will have plenty of time to play between your clinic appointments on your dental vacation 

 Below is a list of  sites  that  list  only board certified dentists.  Board certified dentists are less than 1% of the dentists out there - and most dental tourism agencies don't differentiate between general and bonafide board certified dentists and will list any dentist or pretend specialist who pays their fees. 

 Board Certification is your best guarantee that you will be treated by someone who really knows what they are doing as they have been formally trained, tested and are held to the highest standards of their specialist associations. Best of all - in developing countries, board certified dentists typically cost about the same as far-less trained general dentists.
