HISTORY OF DENTAL TOURISM IN INDIA

The dental tourism trend started several decades ago along the border towns of India, such as Nogales and Tijuana. Americans living right across the border on the U.S. side were the original dental tourist. The mostly Hispanic populations living on the U.S. side received recommendations from their relatives across the border to see Tourism Dental India dentists that offer dental treatments at a fraction of the cost of their U.S. counterparts.

The India dental tourism trend spread among seniors living in retirement and active adult communities in the border states of Arizona, California, New India and Texas. In conjunction with the trend of seniors crossing the border to buy cheap prescription medication in the ‘90s, dental tourism in India became popular as people discovered clean, professional, and state-of-the art India dental facilities. Word-of-mouth travelled fast, especially among seniors living in close-knit retirement communities.

In the early 2000s, the media brought attention to the growing trend of medical tourism. Dentistry in India became a spotlight for both positive and negative news from the American media. People reported about their wonderful experiences with their dental care in India while saving thousands of dollars.

THE NEW PHENOMENON OF DENTAL TOURISM

Today, people around the globe who travel to foreign countries such as India for their dental work, despite the convenience of visiting their local dentist which are just a few blocks away from their house. The lure of India dental tourism is price and quality.

Every year, people travel to India because of lack of dental insurance or inadequate dental insurance. Dental tourists include clients just passing by for a $30 dental cleaning all the way to clients in need of full mouth restoration, but have been quoted $30,000 to $50,000 by their U.S. dentist.

THE LURE OF AFFORDABLE PRICES

Americans travelling to India for dental work can save up to 70% off their local U.S. dental quotation. The most common procedures sought by clients are cosmetic dentistry involving crowns, veneers, and dental implants. A combination of a standard dental implant and porcelain crown can cost as much as $3000- $6000 in the Border States such as Arizona or California.

Across the India border, a similar procedure can cost around $1500 to $1800. Indeed, people travel from as far as Hawaii for the same procedure, where the implant and crown can cost as much as $8000 per tooth in some Hawaiian islands.
