The problem is, if you go a place outside of the United States to have your dental work done, you may be putting your life at risk. There are a lot of dangers associated with travel dentistry. Here are just a few of them.
Other Countries Are Not Regulated Like the U.S. IsWhen you go to a dentist in the United States, they have to have a license. They are required to have gone to school and passed certain exams to ensure they know what they are doing, and that they are doing it safely.
If you travel outside of the U.S., there is no guarantee that you are going to a dentist that has the right requirements. Anyone could put up a sign, spend a bit of money on advertising, and claim to be the professional you are looking for.
Plus, there are people who prey on tourists like this. They know what they have come to the area for and that they are carrying cash to get the procedure done. They may be watching you, and you may not even know it until it is too late.
Your safety is simply not worth that type of risk. If you need any type of a dental procedure done, go in and see your licensed dentist. If you don't like the cost, call around. You may be able to find a dentist nearby who will give you a discount if you can pay for the procedure in cash. At least that way, you can be sure you are getting a safe procedure done.
