If you are considering the possibility of travelling overseas for dental procedures, you would not be the first. Internationally, people are globetrotting for life-changing oral health treatments that are too costly in their home countries.
But for all the positive stories you hear, not everyone has a happy ending. Avoid becoming the unfortunate victim of a scam, botched dental work, or being tricked into paying bills that far exceed the figure you received before starting treatment.
Who are we and why we are different?
We are Access Smile, a dental conglomerate with clinics located in Dublin and Budapest. We understand that major dental surgery is unaffordable for most people, which is why we strongly advocate dental tourism.
What treatments are provided with dental tourism?
You may not need to travel to foreign countries for a general check-up, but dental implants abroad are an attractive option for two reasons. Not only is a costly yet life-changing surgical procedure made possible, but you are granted the opportunity of exploring somewhere new, all without spending your life savings as treatment and vacation are rolled in one.
Will I have to arrange everything myself?
The thought of having to arrange consultations while booking accommodation and flights is stressful, which is why we make the process easier by overseeing everything for you.
How do I arrange dental implants abroad with your practice?
You will first have to visit our Hungarian dentist in Dublin for an initial consultation – this meeting includes a close examination of your mouth to determine whether you are a suitable candidate for tooth implants.
After that, if you have reasonably healthy gums and bone, we will liaise with our associates who are based in Hungary.
Can Access Smiles be described as a dental agency?
No. We might do everything a dental agency or broker would, but we own both of our practices, both locally and abroad.
We also offer comprehensive aftercare, which can include follow-ups should there be any complications, many brokers do not provide this. If anything goes wrong, using an independent broker could be disadvantageous.
Can I expect high-quality dental implants abroad?
You will be the recipient of superb quality dental implants, regardless of whether you receive treatment in Dublin or Budapest.
We are proud of our unsurpassed standards of services, our team of trained and highly capable dentists, not to mention our up-to-date equipment, tools, and technology.
You do not have to compromise on quality because you are paying less. It is important to remember that we set our dental fees according to the cost of living in Budapest.
Is there anything else that I should know?
You will not have to travel back-and-forth to Budapest for follow-ups but can see our local Irish dentist, which is hugely convenient if you do not have the time to jump on a plane to see your dentist.
Are dental implants abroad the only treatment offered overseas?
You can travel to Hungary for any dental procedure you see fit, but people tend to go for major treatments that cost a lot back home, including root canals, veneers and other expensive treatments.
