There are usually one or two reasons to participate in dental tourism. First and foremost, it’s about the price, followed by the bonus vacation. You’ve heard from friends that getting work abroad is the way to go and you’re finally seriously considering it. Good for you. You’re beating the system. You’re a savvy shopper. Getting work done in the United States is too expensive, but we don’t have to get into how inefficient the US healthcare industry is. There are, however, 5 great reasons why you should come to us in Cartagena, Colombia for dental work over all other options.
Save 70% off premier cosmetic dental work
Importantly, we’re typically 70% cheaper than places back home in the U.S. The dollar is stronger here, rent is cheaper, salaries are cheaper, the overall cost of living is cheaper, and the healthcare industry is more financially efficient than in the states. Even with the flight, hotel, and other expenses, taking a short flight to Cartagena, Colombia for your dental care can save you 50% on the final bill. You can stay at a wonderful hotel, that’s highly rated on Booking.com, for just $40 a night. You can have a wonderful, sit-down dinner for just $5.
For extensive work like a full mouth of veneers or multiple dental implants, the cost savings alone could reach the tens of thousands. It’s kinda crazy to think about but do the math. These savings really start to add up. What could you do with an extra $10k?
We use the same cosmetic dentistry materials as dentists back home
One concern people have when looking to getting dental work abroad is the quality of materials. How will I know that the implant that you use is actually made of 100% titanium? You can find some really cheap implants in places like China or India but the quality is just that, cheap. You’ll end up paying for it in the long run with all the extra care you’ll have to put into your mouth. You know the saying, you get what you pay for.
Rest easy knowing that we use the exact same manufacturers as dentists back home. We proudly use top American and European manufacturers BioHorizons, Mircodent, and Zimmer. Your teeth deserve the best and the best is what you shall have. It’s the same materials but 70% off the price.
