What is dental tourism? Dental tourism is a temporary stay in another country with the objective to have dental treatment abroad. Since some dental procedures can last more than a day, clinics that offer dental tourism services will provide you with a treatment, accommodation and travel package for your time in-between treatments.
Dental tourism is a part of a term called medical tourism and it is gaining popularity in recent years. In most countries, dental treatments that go beyond tooth filling or extraction covered by public health, are usually expensive. Therefore, if you are in need of dental services with an aim to improve the cosmetic aspect of your smile (dentures, crowns, whitening etc.), you will be probably searching for a private dentistry clinic.
There is no proven record when did dental tourism start, however we can deduct a conclusion that it started back in times when people travelled in order to get help from renowned doctors. Besides, tourism as an industry has officially started in 17th century, so in conclusion – dental tourism is a term most likely to be assigned to the modern century.
People from all around the world are in need of different dental services, many of them seeking prices that fit their budget. Usually, the most popular countries for dental tourism are the ones with low costs of living. If you wonder why it is like that, we will explain in a brief.
Low cost of life means lower costs of services, therefore for people travelling from countries with higher costs of living, services like dental treatments will be significantly more affordable thus they would have an option to travel and enjoy during the treatment.
With that in mind, the best country for dental tourism is Bosnia and Herzegovina and if you read further, you will acknowledge the fact soon.
Is dental vacation right for me? To better understand if a dental vacation fits your lifestyle, we will point out some factors that might be of high importance in this matter.
Factors in mind when planning a dental vacation:
Make sure you have enough vacation time since dental treatments can vary in terms of the duration of certain procedures.
Most important is for sure, the amount of money you will be willing to pay for your perfect smile. Think thoroughly, do not choose services that are too cheap – otherwise, you will not get quality and most of the time, it will be money spent badly.
For your dental vacation to go smoothly, you need to have patience since dental treatments come with unknown possible consequences like inflammation, so you need to be patient all the way until the treatment ends if you do now want it to be a negative experience.
This type of service will adjust all the factors just for you. Very important is to have a private driver who will take you to see some beautiful destinations since during the treatment your smile will not be looking great (example: travelling with temporary crowns, teeth prepared before the treatment..) and that is why this type of service comes as dental vacation package most likely all inclusive so it is tailor-made for you.
What is the best country for dental tourism? Bosnia and Herzegovina is the best country for dental tourism because the low cost of life directly affects the low cost of dental services and its proximity to the most developed countries determines the level of quality dental services and skilled dentists.

As we mentioned before, Bosnia and Herzegovina is a country located in Europe. Why is this important? As dentistry is a part of medicine, a big role in the quality of dental services has education. European education standards are set high and being geographically close to the most developed countries in the world, makes the very quality dental industry.
