Shall I go abroad for treatment?
Medical tourism is on the increase, with Eastern Europe top for dentistry. Visit healthregulation.org to check if the country has a regulatory body and whether it’s compulsory for dental professionals to be registered, advises the General Dental Council, which also has a guide on its website. Ask whether the team speaks English, if they have a UK practice, what aftercare is provided, what happens if there are complications, and who pays for extra flights, accommodation and remedial work if needed. For further advice, visit dentalhealth.org/cosmetic-treatment.
