Are the Australian dentists protecting patients seeking affordable dentistry in Asia or are they just protecting their turf?

Recent articles in the Australian press and on the Australian Dental Association website have discussed the pros and cons of seeing a dentist in Asia. 

 It’s been much the same story in the US, Canada and the UK for decades now. Dentists in developing nations such as Thailand or the Philippines, healthcare tourism ministries,  travel agencies and consumer advocate groups promote dental tourism  while dentists in the Western countries cry wolf and shed alligator tears.

The attacks by Western dentists are always the same. They suggest that patients have little recourse should things go wrong after returning home. Then there’s the sly hints of poor hygiene, training, inferior materials and equipment.

Hey, Lay off the laughing gas guys! Top quality Seimens dental chairs and Nobel Biocare dental implants are sold to dentists around the world. Not just in Australia. Dental colleges and health authorities abroad teach and inspect for sanitation, sterilization, proper hygiene and proper disposal of medical waste. The dental dark ages are long gone.

AMERICA THE TOOTHLESS by David de Los Angeles

TOOTHLESS AMERICANS..  Approximately 50% of Americans were toothless 100 years ago. 

By David de Los Angeles

Where would we be today without modern dentistry? Instead of novacaine, nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and sleep dentistry - American dentists 100 years ago preferred whiskey and Mexican dentists used tequila (natch) to ease the pain. Cold Margaritas work for me.

Dental fillings were once made from melted gold coins. Since pure gold is a soft metal, the fillings eventually came loose and fell out or were swallowed. Oops.

Oh the pain of it all!  The toothache pain, the pain of the treatment and the pain of paying the dentist. When will the suffering ever end?  Excluding suicide - here's how you can live another day.

If you live within driving distance of the US/Mexico border - take a day off and hop across the border - you'll save hundreds if not thousands of dollars on your treatments. 

If more than 5 hours driving time - and your treatment in the US will cost $3,000us or more - take a flight to Cabo, Puerto Vallarta or Tijuana/San Diego and have a great dental vacation. You will may have mucho dinero left over after all travel and dental expenses depending on the treatments required.

A dental vacation to exotic Thailand or the Philippines is in the cards for those with more than a week to spare. The savings on a few crowns will more than pay the airfare. And the vacation part will be priceless. 

 If you are having a major treatment such as a cosmetic dental makeover that costs $40,000 to 100,000us in the USA - pick out the new car you will buy with your savings when you return from your dental vacation. 

Know before you go. Dental Travel News Co features articles, information and assistance in finding top board certified dentists in Mexico and Asia for the dental procedures most dental tourists are looking for including dental implants, cosmetic dentistry, crowns, veneers, oral surgery, tmj disorder, orthodontics and more. 

Visit Dental Tourism News Co and find out how you can receive the same treatments for up to 75% less in Mexico and Asia. Be sure to try their Free Find A Dentist service to locate the best board certified dentists in your preferred dental travel destination. They'll provide you with estimates, resumes, referrals, appointment setting and dental tourism information without cost.
Always remember the important advice of the American Dental Association regarding dental tourism:  "Be sure to use the services of a board certified dentist when having advanced dental treatments abroad." 

Board certified dentists cost the same as general dentists in most developing nations - and they have the skills you need to get your dental work done right. If you end up in a less-skilled general dentist's chair for your cosmetic dental makeover - you may have your makeover done over. How painful. 

Rest assured - Dental Tourism News Co only recommends board certified dentists.

FIND THE BEST TIJUANA DENTIST For Dental Implants & Cosmetic Dentistry by the Board Certified Mexico Dentist Association

Tijuana Dentist Reviews - Get The Best Tijuana Dental Implants, Cosmetic Dentistry in Tijuana Mexico 

By the Board Certified Dentist Association

               Zona Rio in Tijuana has fine restaurants, museums, galleries, first-class hotels, malls and the best Tijuana dentists.

How to find the Best Dentist in Tijuana Board Certified for dental implants, oral surgery, cosmetic dentistry, orthodontics and more.

Are you searching for a certified dentist in Tijuana for your dental implants? If you are having any kind of advanced dentistry you should be looking for one.  And definitely not a general dentist.

American dental patients who cross the border are searching for the mythical "best Tijuana dentist" - one who who can make perfect crowns, veneers, orthodontics or dental implants. And cheap. A cleaning and a filling? You can get that from your dentist at home without selling your house but you can't get advanced dentistry in the US for a reasonable price anymore. 

You have to be cautious as most dentists in Tijuana are only general dentists and they'd love to have a chance at doing your dental implants. Some say the figure may be as high as 85-90%.

You've heard by now that you can literally save 1,000’s of dollars on your dental implants or cosmetic dentistry in Tijuana. But you have to know where to go to get the work done right because if you let  a general dentist in Mexico under your hood - you may have to get the work done over again if  you  are not lucky. 
There are 2 kinds of dentists in Mexico doing advanced dentistry - generals and specialists. And US dental patients should know the difference between the two when they travel to Mexico for their crown, cosmetic dentistry or dental implants.

General dentists in Mexico are permitted to perform advanced dental procedures such as root canals, crowns, oral surgery and implants despite a general dentist's lack of formal training and certification for advanced dental procedures. Read that line again. The Mexican government doesn't stand in the way of a lowly general dentist trying to earn a living, learning while drilling away on their unsuspecting patients.

A general dentist in Mexico can take a quickie weekend course in dental implants from an implant manufacturer or buy a whitening machine and reinvent himself a cosmetic dentist. Or even call themselves a "Specialist."

But that does not in anyway equate the 2-6 years of additional formal schooling necessary to learn the complicated dental procedures involved in cosmetic dentistry, oral surgery or dental implants that a Mexican (or US) dentist has to acquire to become a Board Certified Dentist - a REAL specialist. 

Some play fast and loose with the term 'Specialist' south of the border - not so much in the US anymore thanks to stronger consumer protection laws. 
If your family general dentist back home in the states attempted to do implants, veneers or a root canal without having undergone additional years in dental specialist school and becoming certified they would have their license revoked. Or worse - perform dentistry gratis for fellow inmates inside a prison for several years.

Dental patients having large treatments performed by general dentists in Mexico risk having their expensive dental work having to be redone due to the general dentist's lack of training. And it happens. You will have to pay to have the work undone, then pay to have it redone properly. By a certified dentist in the US or Mexico. 

Things that can go wrong include: implants misaligned, crowns or bridges that are set too close, set with poor adhesives, new crowns that are poorly color matched, procedures that shouldn't be performed until bone or gum issues are remedied and healed and sedation and ouch issues.

Certified dentists in Tijuana cost the same as general dentists in Tijuana, so there's little reason not to go for a true board certified dentist when it comes to anything beyond the normal cleaning, filling and pulling that general dentists in Mexico AND the US are trained to do.

Will dental tourism become a thing of the past? Someday, you may be able to avoid dentists for things like the pain of the drill and the pain of paying for it with new teeth that grow themselves.  

Here's a Wall St. Journal report that gives hope to everyone who dreads a date with the dentist for a root canal or dental makeover. Things are changing so fast in the biomedical field that its hard for even professionals in the medical community to stay abreast of all the new developments.  

From the WSJ:  "Could the days of the root canal, for decades the symbol of the most excruciating kind of minor surgery, finally be numbered?

Scientists have made advances in treating tooth decay that they hope will let them restore tooth tissue—and avoid the painful dental procedure. 

Several recent studies have demonstrated in animals that procedures involving tooth stem cells appear to regrow the critical, living tooth tissue known as pulp."

Especially wacky is the latest news on 3-D printing - do a news search on it if you are in the dark on the topic. They are printing all kinds of 3-D things with machines - useable houses, tools, human body parts and more! 

The mad bio-med scientists have been growing artificial skin, ears, noses and recently vaginas for some unlucky women born without one. And now teeth according to this recent story from the Wall Street Journal.

Even more crazy - is the recent re-creation of extinct species using dna.  A Wooly Mammoth is being grown at this moment using blood samples from a mammoth that was frozen in the Siberian tundra for 10,000 years. What next? T-Rex?

If you need to replace your teeth and cannot afford a full-mouth dental restoration - or like many these days - even a crown, consider taking a Mexican dental vacation to Cabo, Puerto Vallarta, Puerto Vallarta or even Asia! 

And remember - when taking a dental vacation - always select a board certified dentist - they cost the same as general dentists but are fully trained and certified for the kinds of dentistry most dental tourists want such as dental implants, root canals and cosmetic dentistry.

DENTAL TOURISM UK - Via John Lennon's Tooth

John Lennon's tooth to tour UK dental practices - 

The nasher – embedded in a necklace – is going on tour to promote oral cancer awareness

Photo: Press
John Lennon's tooth is to go on a tour of dental practices in a bid to promote awareness of oral cancer.

The nasher recently fetched £19,000 at auction when it was purchased by author, dentist and celebrity tooth collector Michael Zuk. Part of the tooth has since been turned into a necklace by Beverly Hills jewellery designer Ari Soffer. Named the John Lennon DNA Tooth Necklace, it has been valued at £15,600 ($25,000).

Over the next few weeks, the tooth necklace is being passed around 16 dental practices to highlight National Mouth Cancer Month, which will include free mouth screenings, promotions and fundraising events at each of the dental practices.

Hull Dentist Dr Chris Branfield was the first to borrow the tooth. Branfield said he was pleased to "offer Hull people a chance to diagnose mouth cancer before it’s too late. People even got to wear John Lennon’s tooth around their neck and have a picture taken too".

Lennon originally gave the tooth to his former housekeeper Dot Jarlett at some point between 1964 and 1968. Instead of disposing of it, she gave it to her Beatles-fan daughter. The tooth went under the hammer at the Omega Auction House in Stockport, and ended up fetching £19,000 – nearly double its listed reserve price of £10,000.

Artist Kirsten Zuk – brother of Dr Zuk – incorporated another small piece of the molar in a clay model of the singer which was displayed at the Edmonton Fringe Festival in Canada.

Jeweller Soffer has made similar DNA jewellery pieces for stars such as Tommy Lee, Axl Rose and Slash.

Java dentist invents musical drill to ease patients’ dental fears


Dental practitioner Dhanni Gustiana has tested out his unique  song-playing drill equipment during  procedures at his Indonesian dental surgery in Central Java.  

Mr Gustiana hopes to make those dreaded trips to the dentist slightly more bearable by using his custom-built   tool to lighten the mood.

He modified a conventional dentist’s drill to play music via an MP3 player instead of the custom buzzing sound usually associated with a dentist’s surgery.

The musical drill has proved popular with his younger patients, who can even request their   own music to make their day at the dentist     a bit more pleasant.
‘The children are not afraid of doctor, many of them are afraid of drill,’ he explained.

Dentist creates musical drill to ease patients’ chair fears

He added: ‘I modified this by putting a toy on the head of the drill and telling them that the toy will clean their teeth.’
He spent about six million rupiah (£370) modifying the instrument which comes complete  with its very own disco lights.

We all know it’s important to take care of our teeth, but we’re also familiar with the costs involved.

 Dental Tourism by Brandon Green Published November 01, 2013

For Americans willing to hop on a plane, visiting a dentist in another country could save travelers over 70 percent on dental procedures such as dental implants, crowns and root canals.

Some 130 million Americans live without dental insurance, according a 2012 report to Congress called Dental Crisis in America from Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.). Because even the insured face out-of-pocket costs, it might make financial sense to fly to your next dental appointment.

You Won’t Be Alone

It is estimated that in 2012, 400,000 Americans crossed international borders for dental care. For 2013, a projected growth rate of approximately 20 percent is expected by medical industry analysts. 

The most-searched-for destinations for Americans seeking dental care are Mexico, the Philippines, Costa Rica, and India. Dental implants, crowns, and dentures are the most popular searches.

While procedures abroad may be cheaper, there are a number of things you'll want to consider before traveling internationally for dental care.

Dr. Maria Lopez Howell, consumer advisor for the American Dental Association, says, “If something goes wrong, what is the recourse? Is there a ministry of health? Is there a forum for complaints in the country that you’re going to visit? You really have to do your research.”

Yet, Dr. Howell says it’s important to remember that there are good dentists everywhere. “We all have colleagues across this planet who are very capable and knowledgeable experts in their fields. No dentist [in any] country is perfect.”

It’s understandable to be a little worried about visiting a dentist in another country.  Before I quit my job on Wall Street and started traveling, I was a little worried myself.

My last visit to a dentist outside of the U.S. was in the lakeside town of Ohrid, Macedonia (FYROM). I knew that I needed a crown, and I had heard that people often find inexpensive dental care in Eastern Europe, so when I saw a brochure, I did some research. Though the office was not registered with common dental tourism search engines, it did have some online presence. 

Next, I gave Dr. Gabriela Kalanoska a call. On the phone we discussed the procedure I needed and the price, and I made sure I was comfortable having her work on my teeth. After examining my teeth and discussing my treatment options, she replaced a crown that had cost me thousands of dollars in the U.S. The cost: about $380, including x-rays. I was so happy with the results that I had her replace another crown later that week.

Finding the Right Dentist

To find the best dentist for you, begin your search online. For most destinations, a quick Google search will bring up a number of dentistry sites and dental tourism search engines. You cannot go wrong when you go direct to Board Certified Dentist Associations in Asia and Mexico.

Call potential dentists and speak with them directly about your care options. If you are most comfortable receiving dental care from a professional who speaks English, insist on it.

Know the Procedures

Before flying, have a basic idea of what is involved in dental procedures, such as crowns, implants, and root canals. Once you arrive at the office, discuss all of the procedures and options with your dentist one last time and clarify the total cost.

You need to go and get the exam, get the x-rays, get the treatment plan. I would want to know very clearly what each step of the treatment plan is. Are you prepared to stay for a length of time required to get the best care possible

Never undergo dental procedures because you feel pressured to do so. I have never felt pressured by dentists outside of the U.S., but should you, know that you can leave and find another dentist.

What to Expect From Your Visit

If you are already worried about traveling overseas without the added stress of dental care, international dental travel will not be for you. However, if you do decide to travel for dental procedures, you may find yourself pleasantly reassured by the familiarity of the dentist’s office.

In my experience, dental offices overseas look more or less the same as those in the U.S. Many have the same dental chair, too-bright lights, and little sink for you to spit in. Dr. Howell recommends taking a careful look around the dentist’s office before undergoing treatment to make sure the environment is similar to what you would expect at home. Where is the sterilizer? Are the instruments coming out of a sterile packet? Are they wearing gloves and masks? 

But experts say, don’t forget about the recovery time, especially if you want to hit the beach afterward. I have undergone dental procedures and then later in the day went paragliding in Colombia, took in rock concerts in Costa Rica, and soaked up the sun on a lakeside beach in Macedonia. 

Your recovery experiences may vary. It is important when planning your trip to know how you normally recover from dental work and have relaxing options for post-care activities.

Follow up and Recourse

One drawback of dental travel is that should you require additional care, your dentist may be on the other side of the planet. If the need for emergency care arises while you are at home or you don't want to make a second trip, you will need to make an appointment with a local dentist, who may not be familiar with the materials that were used abroad. 

Keeping careful records of any procedures you have undergone domestically or abroad will aid your next dentist in providing you the best care.

If visiting a dentist during your vacation, be sure to schedule your appointment as early in your trip as possible. Your procedures may require out-of-office processing or follow-up, or you may elect to undergo additional work once you’ve completed your original procedure.

If something goes wrong with your dental procedure done in a foreign country, U.S. citizens can try and seek recourse through malpractice lawsuits, but experts say it’s not always an easy route.  It’s worth researching what rights you have before something goes wrong, as these options will vary from country to country.
Other Costs

Keep in mind that when traveling overseas for dental care, you will incur costs typically associated with international travel. Remember to budget for hotels, visas, food, and airfare, as you would for any international trip.

Also, be sure to discuss all costs associated with your dental work with your dentist prior to beginning any procedures.

If price is your biggest consideration, research dental professionals separately from accommodations, as dental tourism vacation packages that include hotels or attractions will likely be more expensive.

Remember that, even if your primary objective is dental care, you’re on vacation, so plan to go out and have some fun.

Phoenix Editor - India and the Philippines are dental tourism destinations where English is the official language. The Kings English in India, American English in the Philippines. Contact the Board Certified Asia Dentist Association for recommendations for dentists accredited for advanced dentistry in Manila and New Delhi. Their affiliate in Mexico says all their dentists are bi-lingual Spanish (natch) and English.

By TIME Magazine
    .. People have been traveling for centuries in the name of health, from ancient Greeks and Egyptians who flocked to hot springs and baths, to 18th and 19th century Europeans and Americans who journeyed to spas and remote retreats hoping to cure ailments like tuberculosis. But surgery abroad is a fairly modern phenomenon. As health costs rose in the 1980's and 1990's, patients looking for affordable options started considering their options offshore. So-called "tooth tourism" grew quickly, with Americans traveling to Mexico and Asia for dental implants, bridges and caps not covered by their insurance. (A large percentage of today's medical tourism is for dental work, as much as 40% by some estimates.)
Many U.S. doctors and dentists were appalled at the idea of their patients turning to foreign hospitals for care that they considered dangerously cheap. But where many U.S. medical professionals saw great peril, countries like Cuba saw opportunities. Beginning in the late 1980's, the island country started programs to lure foreigners from India, Latin America and Europe for eye surgeries, heart procedures and cosmetic procedures. The Cuban government said it welcomed 2,000 medical tourists last year.
After Thailand's currency collapsed in 1997, the government directed its tourism officials to market the country as a hot destination for plastic surgery, hoping to boost revenues. Thailand quickly became the go-to country for comparatively inexpensive sex-change operations, where patients faced fees as low as $5,000, as well as looser requirements for pre-surgery psychological counseling. Thailand is now a destination spot for all types of plastic surgery as well as a host of routine medical procedures. Bumrungrad International Hospital in Bangkok is probably Thailand's best-known mecca for medical tourists, boasting patients from "over 190 countries" and an "International Patient Center" with interpreters and an airline ticket counter.
In recent years, companies all over the U.S. have sprung up to guide Americans through the insurance and logistical hurdles of surgery abroad, including many in U.S. border states affiliated with medical facilities in Mexico. The physician-managed MedToGo in Tempe, Arizona, founded in 2000, says its clients save "up to 75% on medical care" by getting it in Mexico. The Christua Muguerza hospital system — located in Mexico, but run by U.S.-based Christian hospital group since 2001 — includes a scrolling text box on its web site informing visitors how "very close to you" its Mexican facilities are. ("from Houston 1 hr 37 mins!" "from Chicago 3hrs 15 mins!") Meanwhile, New Zealand is trumpeting its expertise in hip and knee replacements and South Korea is enticing medical travelers with high-end non-medical amenities like golf.
For those who wrinkle their noses at the thought of going under the knife in a foreign, let alone still-developing, country, the American Medical Association introduced a set of guidelines in June for medical tourism. The AMA advocates that insurance companies, employers and others involved in the medical tourism field provide proper follow-up care, tell patients of their rights and legal recourse, use only accredited facilities, and inform patients of "the potential risks of combining surgical procedures with long flights and vacation activities," among other recommendations. Joint Commission International, a non-profit that certifies the safety and record of hospitals, has accredited some 200 foreign medical facilities, many in Spain, Brazil, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and the United Arab Emirates.

Phoenix Editor - For whatever you need or wherever you go - be sure you choose the services of a board certified dentist or doctor. For instance: In the USA - there are few standards as to what constitutes a cosmetic dentist or plastic surgeon. The Florida attorney general did a review of the credentials of  146 plastic surgeons and discovered a former eye doctor, a foot doctor and chiropractor - none of whom every attended a specialist's school for surgical procedures. Cosmetic dentistry and plastic surgery are unregulated specialties in many countries including the US as they are not recognized as true specialties and are not taught as such in medical schools. One exception is Mexico where colleges offer specialist degrees in cosmetic dentistry.

DENTAL TOURISM - Dental Implants, Cosmetic Dentistry Abroad

What to do when your teeth are skipping out on you.. 

Seniors and other cost conscious patients are  going offshore on dental vacations for new smiles in Mexico and Asia. They finding low-cost, high-quality dental implants, dentures, cosmetic dentistry and oral restoration in far off exotic places where it's warm and sunny, and the mai tai's, margaritas and beer are always cold.

Dental implants and cosmetic dentistry are often half or less than the cost  in Asia and Mexico as they are back in the US, Canada or other western developed nations. 

For instance: dental implants costing $4-8,000us cost only $2-2,500. complete by board certified dentists in Asia and Mexico using name brand dental implants like Nobel Biocare. Board certified dentist associations in Mexico and Asia can refer you to the best dentists in your preferred dental holiday destination. 

Hint - avoid the lowest cost clinics - they are usually run by general dentists who lack the skills most dental tourists require. You can't blame them for trying - at your expense. Yes you can, and certainly will.  Get a Board Certified Dentist. 

Save up to 75% on your Oral Restoration on a dental vacation.

You can save tens of thousands of dollars on a full-mouth oral restoration or beautiful dental implants in a Mexican or Manila dental clinic.

An oral restoration can involve dental implants, sinus lift surgery, mini implant secured bridges, crowns, veneers, periodontal work and more.

The cost can be $45,000us to $100,000 in pricey US clinics where the staff wear black, there's marble and leather everywhere and autographed photos by celebs on the salon walls.

Whereas (roll the drums please) a full-mouth restoration will run $12,000 to $25,000 in Asia or Mexico depending on the procedures involved.

Manila dentists speak perfect English as American English is the national language in the Philippines. The travel experience for those who haven’t visited Asia is priceless. You won't have to know how to say "ouch" in Chinese or Maylay in Manila.

San Diego is one of America’s favorite vacation spots and is just across the border from Tijuana. You stay and play in San Diego while you have your cosmetic dentistry, oral restoration or dental implants 15 minutes down the highway in Tijuana.

Puerto Vallarta dentists are popular with seniors as the town is less touristy and more easy going than famed party towns Cabo and Cancun. The Board Certified Mexico Dental Association has 2 excellent clinics in PV.
Manila dentists have been popular with Europeans, Brits and Aussies for decades who enjoy visiting exotic places for a week or two on dental holidays. There are 7,100 islands to explore in the Philippines.
Careful re Bangkok - The Thai military declared martial law in June 2014 after 2 years of political instability. Many foreign patients are switching to Manila now. Manila dentists all speak perfect American English as its the national language of the Philippines. And Filipinos love Americans and all things American.

Wherever you choose to go for your dental implants or cosmetic dentistry - be sure to choose a board certified dentist. They are the best of the best having spent many extra years in dental specialist colleges learning the advanced dental procedures most dental tourists want.

Whatever you do, don't get lured into a general dentist's clinic by fancy advertising with glowing testimonials, marble floors, ferns or leather sofas in the salon.
