Dental Tourism in Greece
Dental Tourism is gradually picking pace in the past few years. Dental tourism is the combination of dental treatment with vacation. Greece is well known as an ideal destination for vacation with hundreds of beauties to see, explore and enjoy.
The dental treatments offered in Greece are of the same quality as in other countries with very attractive solutions when it comes to prices of dental services. The cost of dental treatment in countries like USA, Belgium, Luxembourg or Switzerland are sometimes three times more than in Greece (with the same quality of dental services). Some examples of prices (e.g in Switzerland) are the ones given for a normal white dental filling which costs from 200-400 euros while in Greece the prices range from 50 to maximum 80 euros.
Another example for the same country is a dental implant where its cost with the final crown is more than 3000 euros while in Greece the same treatment is being done for the half price. It is therefore highly recommended especially for patients with big treatment plans with high financial demands to seek treatment and leisure in Greece enjoying in between his treatment vacation in Athens or on an island.
