Dental tourism in Thailand, Phi Phi Ley

Phi Phi Ley, Maya Bay, Thailand

When looking at dental holiday destinations around the world you see that the major spots tend to be warm weather holiday destinations such as Thailand and the Philippines in South East Asia and Mexico, Costa Rica and Brazil in Central and South America. And don’t forget India as well, a country that is a leading destination for medical and dental holidays.

But there are some other countries that might surprise you. With European low cost airlines flying all over Europe, many dental tourism clinics have opened in countries like Hungary, Poland and Slovenia. And from their website marketing it looks like the majority of dental holiday makers are from the UK.

Another dental and medical tourism destination that might surprise you is China. I am increasingly seeing Chinese Dental clinics marketing dental holidays, including Dental Implants and Dentures Implants. It is probably fair to say that China might have some catching up to do to compete with the major destinations, but as the world’s second biggest economy and the forth most visited country in the world behind Spain, the USA and France, the country could be a contender.
