Driven by falling NHS dentist numbers and the rising price of going private in the UK the last decade has seen going abroad for dentistry as an increasingly attractive option
Hungary has more qualified dentists per capita than any other country and dentists are required to continue their training throughout their career. It’s not just Brits who have flocked there; traditionally patients from Austria and Germany have crossed the border, preferring to see a Hungarian dentist rather than their own.
ver the last decade, the NHS dental system has let down thousands of Britons who have struggled to find a dentist even for basic treatment. Many confess to missing regular check-ups and others have let dental problems go unchecked, leading to more serious and long term teeth problems. Many however have found a solution to their dental woes by finding cheap dentists abroad and travelling, mainly to Europe, for treatment. Rising costs of private treatment and limitations with the NHS system have contributed to the rise of dental tourism over the last decade and one of the most popular destinations is Budapest.
Hungary has more qualified dentists per capita than any other country and dentists are required to continue their training throughout their career. It’s not just Brits who have flocked there; traditionally patients from Austria and Germany have crossed the border, preferring to see a Hungarian dentist rather than their own. For anyone looking for cheap dentists abroad, Hungary is the best place to start. As well as having hundreds of excellent clinics, English is widely spoken and travel to the city is affordable and fast.
One of the first companies to help Brits find cheap dentists abroad was Smile Savers Hungary – they have helped thousands to benefit from the top quality dental work and low prices in Budapest. Smile Savers Hungary is run by a couple with first hand, personal experience of having treatment done in the city. Plus, they work with the city’s top dental clinic – the award winning Implant and Aesthetic Center. The clinic is run by the highly respected Dr Attila Kaman, who is a Master of Implantology and has personally placed over 15, 000 implants in his distinguished career.
Typically patients can expect to save 60-70% on their treatment in Budapest compared to a private clinic in London. There are currently six airlines that run between the UK and Budapest’s Ferihegy airport including Ryan Air, Easy Jet and British Airways. Hotel prices vary, but Smile Saver’s Hungary offer great discounts on four star hotels starting at €49 per night for a double room. And Budapest’s famous tourist attractions like the Danube River or St Stephens Basillica make sure the trip isn’t all about your teeth. All together, the savings, the standard of treatment and ease of getting there, make Budapest the top European destination for anyone looking for a cheap dentist abroad.

“Dentures were not a choice I was willing to consider and I knew the treatment I needed was going to be extremely expensive in the UK,”
...The whole experience was amazing. The clinic was very impressive looking. The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful...The whole package seemed very professional. I watched all the video clips, read all the reviews and compared them to a couple of other places. SmileSavers looked like the best one for me.
