Dentistry in Poland
Dentistry and tourism aren't two words that fit together quite like hand and glove. In fact some would say they fit more like hand and vice, but then their will always be those for whom a trip to the dentists is a traumatic experience - no matter how professional the dentist, modern the practice and winsome the dentist's assistant.
Whereas there are few of us, Teddy Sheringham aside, who will actually profess to a fondness for the dentist's chair, the majority of us would certainly enjoy the prospect of our dental enhancement a lot more if it didn't cost us the proverbial arm and a leg to get it. Which is why in fact this strange term 'Dental Tourism' has come to exist...
What many people from the UK and beyond are beginning to realise is that Poles are not only experts at serving drinks and renovating houses, they are also a dab hand at dental surgery. In fact Polish dentists are considered some of the best dental practictioners in the world, with Polish private dental clinics boasting all the modern facilities and tools that Western ones do. Suddenly it's all beginning to make sense...
With cities like Wroclaw and Krakow only a cheap flight away from many other European cities, particularly in the UK, a trip to a Polish dentist isn't half as absurd as it first seems. Particularly when you factor in the considerably cheaper prices customers pay in Poland for services like dental implants, surgery and dental prosthetics. In fact flights, accommodation and that tricky endodontic treatment can, combined, cost a lot less than equivalent treatment back home. Plus you get to visit an amazing city in Central Europe to boot!

The whole experience was positive I had lost a front tooth several years ago and had a bridge put in which lasted 7 years until I fell and it was knocked out. My London dentist said the best eventual solutiuon would be an implant. Also the tooth next to that, also at the front, was not a good shape, he said I could then have a crown and bridge attached to the implant. Other teeth had really poor old fillings. I wasn't intending to have them fixed because the cost just of the implant was going to be so high here. I am extremely happy with the work done in Warsaw. Dr Karolina Trusiewicz explained and showed me just how bad the state of the teeth and fillings were and having new crowns made all the difference to the whole mouth- so it wasn't just fitting the implant and the bridge next to it, but really the whole upper jaw that was improved, transforming my mouth. Regarding prices, I cannot give a comparison between your prices and an up to date price here for an implant, but 7 years ago when I enquired the cost of the implant alone was to be about £2, 500. To have had all the treatment I've had done, if it had been in London, would have been quite impossible. The whole experience was positive. The dentist was courteous and explained things clearly, his colleagues, assistants and receptionists were all very pleasant and kind. I would certainly recommend the dentist to family and friends. The results are so much worth all the travelling and time spent. I feel confident and very pleased! Thank you for your attention .

Why are English speaking people referring to Warsaw as Worclaw? Hmm
Leslie from United Kingdom
Those are two different cites. Warsaw is the capital. Wroclaw (which many English speakers pronounce 'wro-claw') is in Upper Silesia.

Clinics in Wroclaw are really well equipped. The staff - very professional, doctors experienced and qualified. Prices are still competitive comparing to European or American.

Excellent article. There is no doubt that Poland is rapidly increasing its share of dental tourism. The Dentist Abroad has decided to do an in depth feature on dental tourism in Poland.

I fully agree, all you need to do is to book a cheap flight with the hotel (or hostel as they are very good in Poland - doubles witch bathroom - 25 Euro) and you can solve all your problems. Painless and much cheaper then in Ireland or UK!
Mathew from United Kingdom Reply
The service in this country is really much cheaper than within the UK. I also found it very very professional. Clinics are well equipped, staff well trained, everything top quality. In Wroclaw, I was in Platinum and I can't complain at all. My friend used the Polish Smile on several occasions and he was very happy with it as well. Generally it's a great alternative to what we have in Britain.
