Did you know dental tourism is consistently growing trend throughout the world? This fast-paced industry steadily follows the market's demand for affordable dental care combined with perfect vacation setting. Surveys showed 53% of EU citizens are ready to travel to another EU country to receive a better quality treatment than in their home country.
In this blog, we’ll reveal everything you need to know about dental tourism when considering dental treatment abroad and why choosing Croatia for your dental vacations will be the best decision you can make.## A brief explanation of what dental vacations are and why are they becoming so popular
To put it simply, when someone goes on dental holidays it means that they’re traveling to another country for the purpose of receiving dental treatment outside of their local healthcare systems, which may be accompanied by a vacation.
It’s not so hard to understand why dental holidays are becoming increasingly popular. For example: On average, a UK citizen can save up to 70% on dental treatment in Croatia compared to their home country. In fact, these savings are so enormous that they’d pay less for the whole package deal - a plane ticket, dental procedure and a few days vacation - than just for treatment back in United Kingdom.
Still, there are even more reasons why people decide to go on dental holidays. The four main arguments for dental treatment abroad are:
Lower prices = lower quality? Definitely not!
However, some people might be concerned that lower prices automatically mean lower quality, but our long-term results and highly satisfied patients consistently prove just the opposite - impeccable quality.
There are many reasons why prices for complex dental treatments are so much lower in our clinic than in other countries in the European Union: Even though Croatia is an EU member state, labor costs, fixed costs and education fees are much lower than in the rest of the EU. That’s why we can afford to provide you with premium products like Nobel Biocare, Straumann and Neodent implants for a fraction of what you would pay in the UK.
Every year, more and more EU citizens decide to come to Croatia to get dental work done. With a ratio of 79 dentists per 100.000 citizens, Croatia is on the top 10 list when it comes to health care personnel in the EU, right alongside countries like Germany, Sweden and Luxembourg. Coming to Croatia for dental treatment will also save you a lot of time, as the waiting times are considerably reduced.

Other than high quality treatment (at a drastically reduced price), another significant benefit of choosing Croatia as your destination for dental treatment abroad is - Croatia itself! It offers the perfect conditions and environment to fully recover and charge your batteries after your treatment.
How do you imagine the perfect recovery setting? Picture this: enjoying postcard views of the azure and crystal clear Adriatic sea, while savoring delicious plates of authentic cuisine with your new teeth. Sounds pretty amazing, doesn't it?
