What you need to know about going to the dentist abroad
Published 19/08/2010 | 05:00
You can get cheaper dental treatment abroad but you also need to do your research to avoid problems:
1Ask your dentist what a procedure costs and then get a comparison from a dentist in the North or further afield.
2Bear in mind that materials used may vary, so ask about that too.
3If you decide to travel abroad for a treatment, choose an agent that can examine you here first and provides follow-up care.
4Remember to take into account travel costs and extra time off work.
5Mix and match by getting simple procedures with your local dentist and bigger treatments at keener prices in the North or abroad.
