Why dental treatment fees are much cheaper in Turkey than in the UK?

Dental treatment abroad

Dental treatment costs can be really high to afford in the UK. Even if you go to NHS clinics instead of private, you still might pay astronomical amounts for your treatment. This situation in the UK has got various reasons behind it like high lab prices, extremely expensive insurance costs, high wedges, high demand etc.

Why are dental treatments cheaper in Turkey?In the last few years, high dental treatment fees in the UK has lead British patients to seek for alternative ways to avoid paying this much money for their dental treatment. As a result of this, Turkey has become one of the most popular stops of Brits for dental tourism. Naturally, some might ask “But why is dental treatment so affordable in Turkey when compared to the UK?”.

In Turkey, dental clinics expenses like indemnity insurance, wedges, lab fees and rents are much lower than in the UK. Some dental clinics like Esdent Dental Centre, might even have their own dental lab inside their clinic and they bypass these lab fees.

Dental care system in Turkey

In the UK, dental clinics accept both private and NHS patients. This means same doctor deals with both type of patients. So, their appointments are full for the next few weeks or months. However, in Turkey the system is completely different. Except dental clinics of government hospitals and universities, any dental clinic that you go to is a private-only clinic. This has leaded to a good competition between dental clinics. As a result of this, it became an obligation for these dental clinics and their dentists to improve themselves in many areas from technology to their skills in dentistry. Although they did big investments to their business, they had to keep their dental treatment fees in the same levels because of the competition.

In a nutshell, if you make a small research about dental institutions in Turkey, you will find many well established dental clinics with affordable dental treatment fees. As Esdent Dental Centre, we are proud to be able to offer you the highest quality treatment packages at the most competitive prices.
