If you’re like many who research dental tourism, you’ve probably at one point been unpleasantly surprised by the cost of quality dental care back home and you’re looking for alternatives. You’ve heard from people you know that it’s becoming increasingly more popular to travel abroad to find the expert cosmetic dentistry you need at a price you can afford. Through research or by word of mouth, you’ve come to learn that Colombia has invested a lot into medical and dental tourism. The care you receive here is the same, if not better, than what you’re used to back home - and all for roughly a third of the cost.
Why is cosmetic dental work so affordable in Cartagena, Colombia?
There are many factors that go into this but know that:
The cost of living here is cheaper. This directly impacts salaries, rent, how much to charge for work, etc.
The US Dollar is strong here. Your money goes a lot further in Colombia than it does back home.
Greedy insurance companies don’t artificially inflate prices here like they do back home. It’s sad but it’s true.
Cheaper price doesn’t mean a cheaper quality of cosmetic dental care
You’re in highly professional hands. Dr. Julio Oliver has been practicing for 18+ years with a great reputation in the city of Cartagena. He’s known as one of the best. You’ll love his work.
His specialty is implant procedures and holds multiple degrees, including:
Implantology (Universidad Veracruzana of México)
Endodoncia (University of Cartagena)
Oral Rehabilitation and Clinical Biochemistry, Masters (University of Cartagena)
Same cosmetic dental manufacturers as dentists back home
One of the best parts of this all is that we use the same manufacturers and materials as the top American and European dentists. These companies are BioHorizons, Microdent, and Zimmer and they’re leading the industry. We proudly use them. After all, it’s what you’d expect when receiving quality dental care.
It’s an easy flight to Cartagena, Colombia for dental work
Cartagena is a beautiful Caribbean getaway. You get to explore one the of oldest, most beautiful cities in all the Americas. With a rich history, vibrant Caribbean culture, Cartagena is a traveler’s delight. The “old city” is something out of a novel. With narrow streets (small enough to fit only one lane of traffic), colorfully painted buildings, street vendors, and amazing restaurants, it’s a real gem.
Cartagena is on the Caribbean coast of Colombia and is very accessible from North America. There’s a popular, direct, 2-hour flight from Miami that flies out multiple times a day. Cartagena even shares a time zone with the east coast so your body won’t have to adjust to any significant time zone differences. This makes coming to Cartagena easier than other options like Thailand or South Korea. Shorter flights also mean cheaper flights.
