World’s First Comprehensive Dental Tourism Survey
Is that a headline that grabs you, or what? (What?) Well, it turns out to be interesting even though the PR agency has a lousy headline writer.
It’s a survey of westerners who went abroad for dental treatment — dental tourism as they call it. RevaHealth seems to be an insurance company booster (?) that encourages this medical tourism stuff.
Top fact: 84 per cent of patients who travelled abroad to receive dental treatment were thrilled with the results.
The average cost savings of flying overseas for dental treament: $6,400 in money, 40 per cent savings over local treatment.
Patient satisfaction was highest overall for clinics in Hungary, Poland and (ta-da!) Thailand.
This isn’t news to a lot of people, especially residents of Thailand. Dental treatment is not just good here. It is world class.
