Dental Tourism Experiences
An Overall Experience of the dental tourism and touring spirit.
I enter into the Apollo Dental Spa and I’m stunned! Literally! Well, it is a 7 star Dental Spa. It’s not your usual dental clinic and is rightly called as a dental spa. I have a quick look the fish spa treatments, PSPs available in a corner for kids, Swedish massage, manicure, Jacuzzi with the ever smiling and stylish receptionist, the very ambience of the clinic and I cannot take it as a hospital! I enter the consultation room and the very presence of sophisticated technologies gives me an assurance. As I come out I see two foreign nationals entering the hospital and I can anticipate their response to the clinic, no the Dental Spa.
Many of the private dental clinics have braced themselves for dental tourism or dental vacation in India and are ready to welcome the foreigners with open, welcoming hands. With this infrastructure and technology it is not surprising that medical tourism is a growing sector in India with an annual growth rate of 30 % every year. Dental treatments forms 10 % of the total medical tourism and is projected to increase by 30 % by 2015! Medical tourism is pacing in a tremendous phase in India mainly because of the low cost and the high quality of treatments. The same holds good for dental tourism. But dental tourism has many more advantages when compared to tourism for medical treatments.
