John Ward, founder of the well-known blog the Slog, talks about how he saved £20,000 on dental implants in Greece.
John talks about his personal experience on how to research for a good dental clinic, and how he decided to opt for dental implants surgery abroad.
In a more personal tone, he talks on his experience with the procedure and the healing. In the following paragraph- that comes directly from his post- he talks about the case for medical tourism and the cost of dental implants.
‘The differences are best explained using some price and percentage data.
To have a four-implant foundation for an eight-tooth bridge, the lowest quote I got in the UK was £25,000, the highest £37,000. The cost of doing it in Southern Greece (using a highly-skilled, German trained-dentist) was €6000 – but in cash, nudge nudge etc. That’s an 80% differential in price, and I reckon it was worth every penny: for example, for €20,000 in France you can buy a decent motor-home…the difference between the two prices.
So in theory, it’s a no-brainer IF you take great care on two points:
1. Extensive local knowledge of the skills and honesty of the dentist
2. A very good interpreter if you don’t speak the language.
In short, as always caveat emptor applies. I wouldn’t go to Mexico to have my teeth cleaned let alone extracted; but on the other hand, many middle class Greeks now get implants done in Albania…where the price is half of the Greek cost.’
