The world's first Dental Tourism survey, carried out by, reveals high levels of satisfaction among the thousands of dental tourists questioned. Patients who had travelled abroad to receive treatment revealed an average satisfaction rating of 84%, along with an average cost saving of $6,400, or 60% of the cost of their treatment locally.

More than 95% of respondents stated that cost was the main reason why they considered Dental Tourism in the first place, but when it came to choosing which clinic to visit, quality was the deciding factor.

Patients reported wide variations in the amount of the money they saved and in the abilities of certain clinics to communicate effectively. Unsurprisingly, there were also variations in satisfaction between countries as a whole, with patient satisfaction highest overall for clinics in Hungary, Poland and Thailand.

Patients were relatively unaware of their dental treatment options before visiting Only 54% knew exactly what treatment they needed, and a full 30% had no idea of where they intended to travel to. In addition to this only 50% of patients had visited their local dentist prior to making their enquiry with an overseas clinic.

Philip Boyle, Marketing Manager,, commented:

"We are happy to see that patients who used were very satisfied with the results and cost of their treatment, and we look forward to continuing to supply new dental tourists with the best information and choices possible. Our verified patient reviews, price guides and detailed treatment descriptions should all help patients to make an informed decision before travelling."
