Dental Tourism in India

Get that perfect smile for less and enjoy a vacation to a country that not only offers cultural heritage but a vibrant lifestyle as well


The two most essentials of the modern world include a never ending lust for travel and a necessity for a perfect jawline, inside and outside, to enjoy the food if not to smile at the strangers you meet. The idea of visiting a dentist on vacation might sound odd but with the quick adoption of this trend, Dental Tourism is here to stay; so you might as well leverage your next visit to get the, much delayed, complete dental makeover. Do not know where to start in Asia? We have done your homework for you.

These five India, based clinics offer comprehensive dental care at completely transparent pricing. Whatever the scope of your dental treatment, you can expect the very best dental experience conducted in the most relaxing and comfortable surroundings. The cost varies depending on the complexity of the individual treatment and the options that one selects. But when an implant starts around USD 550, a high-end zirconia crown is in the USD 200 range, 3M metal braces starting at USD 800, root canal treatment per tooth being completed for under USD 100 and an Invisalign (USA) costing you USD 4000 roughly, I would suggest go to India.
