There are many reasons why people all over the world visit the Philippines. Among the many reasons, leisure and tourism are the primary ones. But do you know that for the past several years now, many people have also come to the Philippines for a different kind of tourism – that is, Dental Tourism. Dental tourism, in general, promotes traveling to another country to seek dental care and treatment.
While there are several countries offering dental tourism, allow us to identify the top reasons why you should consider our country, the Philippines, as your choice for your child’s dental treatment destination.
1. Reasonable Dental Cost
Dental treatments and services in the Philippines offer a fraction of the cost that you need to pay in your home country. For example, a procedure like a dental crown will cost you at least a thousand dollars through your local dentist. But that same service you will benefit from, for half the price, here in the Philippines. In the US, the general cost of a dental filling per tooth can be at least $180 or more.
For the same dental service, you can save at least $100 or even more if it’s done in the Philippines. Overall, having your child’s dental treatment here in the Philippines will give you and your family substantial savings while still getting topnotch service from our professional and well-trained dentists.
These cost savings will allow your family to maximize the budget and have both dental treatment and a family vacation, as opposed to just spending all in dental work in your home country.
2. Quality of Dental Training, Skills, and Service Provided
Lower dental cost does not mean low-grade service. In fact, you can rest assured that the quality of dental services and treatments done by reputable pediatric dentists in the Philippines is at par with international dental standards and practices. Filipino dentists have completed the necessary training, continuing education, and even receive international accreditation, as a commitment to further hone their skills and provide world-class service to dental patients.
In addition, reputable dentists provide best-in-class facilities and dental tools that you may likewise find in your local dentist’s office. Reputable dentists utilize the latest technology and dental advancements and use the same international brands of tools and materials in performing dental treatments. Other dentists are even members of global dental organizations abroad.
3. TLC: Tourist Destinations, English Language and Culture
When traveling to any country, many tourists consider the places to be visited, the language spoken, and culture, in general. We are very proud to say that the Philippines offer all of these and more. Dental tourists can enjoy sightseeing and experience the country’s numerous world-famous sceneries and tourist spots, island beaches, and heritage sites.
There is also a shortage of what to do, where to go, and what food to eat as each province offers unique experiences, sites, and food that you will surely enjoy. Meanwhile, you need not worry when it comes to communication and going around as Filipinos are known to understand and speak the English language very well. As a dental tourist, you will for sure experience the Filipino hospitality – warm, helpful, and friendly.
