Costa Rica - Affordable Dentistry, Rockin' Destination

Costa Rica's Rio Celeste Waterfall

Country Profile

Costa Rica is on the land bridge between North and South America. The Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea add stunning coastlines to a country already rich in natural resources.

Rugged mountain ranges separate the coastal plains to east and west. These include over a hundred volcanic cones of which several are still active. The territory also includes several islands. A quarter of the landmass forms part of a natural conservation system. Although Costa Rica lies within the tropics, it has varying microclimates according to elevation and topography. The summer dry season lasts from December through to April, followed by a moist period for the rest of the year. 

Dental Tourism in Asia

Thailand, is the granddaddy of dental tourism in Asia. There are world class clinics throughout the Kingdom of Thailand. Though Bangkok is the most popular owing to it being the arrival point for most, other destinations like Phuket, etc, all have very good dental services and are well-known for quality throughout the healthcare system.

Philippines, for those "in-the-know" is an established and comfortable destination. The Philippines is home to perhaps the best English speaking population in Asia. It is "Westernized" in the sense that many of the chains and global brands are active throughout the country. It is Christian and capitalist so the culture is not a big jump for most from the West. The Philippines has world class dental care and that is why it is hugely popular with Australians and Kiwis and has been for many years. Many Americans who were stationed in the Philippines many years ago travel to the archipelago for dental work. Excellent dentists can be found in Makati, Manila, Quezon, and throughout the country. 

Mexico - An Enigmatic Dental Destination

Mexico's Mayan Ruins 

Introduction

Mexico shares its frontier to the north with the United States, which is why Mexico is the go-to-place for a quick, affordable dental treatments. The population is a blend of Indigenous peoples and European migrants. 82% of the population is Roman Catholic. The official language is Spanish, with a third of the population unilingual. European and America expatriates create pockets of English, French and German speakers. English is common in international business, and at holiday resorts where tourists congregate.

Dental Tourism in Latin America

Mexico

The population of over one hundred and ten million is ethnically diverse and cosmopolitan. European and America expatriates create pockets of English, French and German speakers. English is common in international business, and at holiday resorts where tourists congregate.

Given the country's close proximity to the United States means that many American medical professionals are educated in Mexico and vice-versa. Health care is generally equivalent to the American standard, with local hospitals and dental clinics equipped to latest equipment and hygiene standards. Mexican healthcare may be 75% cheaper on the exchange rate and lower labor and regulatory overhead. However, it is arguably equally as good.

Thailand - Land of Affordable Dentists and Premium Clinics

Thailand's Phraya Nakhon Cave

The Kingdom of Thailand - favorably remembered by many as Siam - shares borders with Burma and Laos to the north, and Laos and Cambodia to the east. To the south lie the Gulf of Thailand and Malaysia, and to the west the Andaman Sea. It is a constitutional democracy with upper and lower houses under overall governance of a monarch and boasts a newly industrialized economy. A blend of Thai, Thai Chinese, Malay, Khmer and Hill Tribes are 95% Buddhist.

There are several distinct geographic regions, comprising a mountainous north, a central plateau, and a southern isthmus that widens out to form the Malay Peninsula. The climate is broadly tropical with regular summer monsoon rains from May to September. For the rest of the year, it is generally dry, although the isthmus is invariably hot and humid.

Traditionally, Thais lived in rural areas, although industrialization is changing this. Approximately half of all Thais live in urban areas, including Chiang Mai, Phuket, and Pattaya, and Bangkok, that is by far the largest with five million residents.

Hungary - Offers The Best Dental Care In Europe

Hungary's Visegrad Castle

Hungary: Affordable Dentistry, Premium Clinics 

Hungary borders seven other countries in Eastern Europe, rivaled only by China and Russia in this regard, which border fourteen countries each. Hungarian Goulash is what comes to mind when most Westerners hear the country mentioned; however, neither the number of border stations nor the spicy stew are what this beautiful, peaceful country are best known for.

A tourist traveling around this part of Europe might become confused by the national emblem of Hungary; because it looks like Hungary won a game of Capture the Flag with Italy and then proceeded to turn it on its head. It’s a fine-looking flag, nonetheless, with its bold, broad red, white, and green horizontal stripes. Plus, if any of the culinary secrets are shared between the two countries, it would certainly please the likes of Anthony Bourdain. The cooking in Hungary is very hearty, centering primarily on meats, seasonal vegetables, fruits, fresh bread, dairy products and cheese. It has some Asiatic and other exotic influences; however, it typically remains within the realm of Western European.

Philippines - Tourist Hub for Dental Travelers

Philippines' Banaue Rice Terraces

The Republic of the Philippines is an archipelago of 7,107 islands in the Western Pacific Ocean. The official languages are Filipino and English. Its location on the Pacific Ring of Fire makes it prone to typhoons and earthquakes, but extremely wealthy in natural resources. 

Transport is relatively undeveloped due to the nature of the archipelago, and the mountainous areas inland. Consequently, the nation is highly mobile with a culture of texting and exchanging greetings. For many, cellphones double as wallets. In fact, the Philippines is a leader among developing nations when it comes to mobile commerce. Three internet exchange points connect to eight submarine cables leading to the world beyond. Approximately one third of Filipinos are on the internet.

Dental Tourism in Europe

Hungary

With a dynamic economy and democratic government, Hungary is a rapidly growing country. Its infrastructure is state of the art, and rail travel is a big part of its expanding transportation system. All of Hungary is readily accessible by all modes of transportation, including two international airports: One in Budapest, and one in Debrecen.  Driving from any of the seven neighboring countries is a viable option as well. Hungary is most popular with clients from the UK but also receives its fair share of Germans and Swiss.
