Have you ever heard the phrase "dental tourism?" to most people this combination of words doesn't sound too pleasing because the following question comes immediately to our minds: what do tourism and vacations have to do with cosmetic dentistry? The fact that they might not be obviously related doesn't mean that there is no connection between each other.

Dental tourism also known as dental vacation is a concept in which a patient desirous of dental care seeks it in other foreign country i.e. from high income countries to low cost ones or where there is specialization in the particular field of medicines. This is not a recent development but for decades Americans have been traveling abroad for bargain deals in dental implants, crowns etc. The main reason for this is cost advantage but can be emergence of treatment in other cases. In US and other European countries long waiting lists and high costs has resulted in a great dental travel industry.
