Vietnam Dental Tourism is growing at a breakneck speed thanks to a professional combination between dentistry and tourism. It has caught great attention from foreigners whose requirements do not match to that of the local dental care. One of those mismatches, unsurprisingly, is caused by the high cost and tentatively huge price range of dental services provided by different dental offices.

After years performing dental tourism, Australian patients have become one of the most loyal clients of Navii Dental Care because of exorbitant dental services in Australia, which is not a very good investment in mind of many patients. 

So, this blog will discuss why Vietnam is an ideal location for dental tourists, specifically the Australians by comparing the costs of some basic dental services in Vietnam and in Australia.

Conclusion :

To sum up, choosing a developing country like Vietnam should be a considerable save of money for dental tourists, especially for those from developed countries. In fact, the cost of a full-packaged dental tourism can still be less than a dental treatment alone. Due to the exchange rate, alongside with other factors, dental prices in Australia can be 8 times as much as that in Vietnam and the price range can be extremely wide. For example, an endodontist can charge 50% higher than a dentist in this “Kangaroo country”. On the other hand, dental tourism is an intriguing experience that “hits two birds with one stone” when tourists can tuck into slap-up meals in one of the top “15 Best Countries For Food Around The World”, while having their smile shined, accompanied by pleasant breath throughout their vacation!
