How to Find Dentists in Turkey When You are Flooded with Choices



ental tourism is a big business and it comes as no surprise when you take into account that, in countries like Turkey, the cost for dental work is as much as half, or even less, than that what you would pay in Germany or the EU. Even though you are guaranteed to get cheaper dental care, a major problem, that can seem quite daunting, is that you become bombarded with different choices and it becomes difficult to make up your mind.


But before we give you a few practical points on how to choose the best possible dentist for you in Turkey, allow us to elaborate a little bit about the reasons why this country is one of the favorite dental destinations in Europe. The Turkish dental market is one of the fastest growing medical markets with an average annual growth of 12%. The country currently generates €1 billion in revenue from foreign patients, most of them Europeans and Middle Easterners. Experts estimate that this revenue could go up to $3 billion by 2018.


If you are wondering about the quality of the dental equipment in Turkey, you don’t have to because most of it is imported, and usually CE certified. The quality of dental treatments here corresponds to the quality of the equipment used. A substantial number of private dentists have been awarded with the renowned ISO 9001/2000 Quality Certificate. General consensus is that dental care in Turkey is modern, affordable and of high quality.

 

Dentist in Turkey

As for choosing the perfect dentist for you out of thousands of them in Turkey, there are a few techniques that will narrow down your choices so that you only get the best dental work done at the best price.


  1. Decide what you need done and find a dentist that specializes in exactly thatThere are many forms of dental work available; from a simple filling, a porcelain veneer, a Zimmer implant, a bridge, tooth extraction, and replacing chipped broken or missing teeth to teeth whitening and treating gum disease. To narrow down your choices, you need to know exactly what it is that you need and then do  specific research. Placidway can help you greatly with that. You will be able to filter your search not only by country and city, but also by treatment, specific procedure and money you are willing to spend on your dental work. Gain the most relevant information in advance. Once you choose your dentist in Turkey you should be able to get a free quote that also contains the exact care plan of the requested dental treatment. 
  2. Compare by means of reviews / testimonialsThis is also one of the better ways to make an informed decision about which dentist to choose. Our suggestion is to find the dentist that has the most / the best reviews.
  3. Valid Membership of the Turkish Dental AssociationBear in mind that this is an umbrella organization for the Turkish dentists which objective is to maintain and improve professional, ethical and legal aspects of dentistry. The Turkish Dental Association has over 24,000 dentists as its members with 63% of them running private practices.  In order to practice dentistry, each dentist must be a member of the Association.
  4. Spoken languagesA well-trained, highly professional dentist (including staff) should speak fluent English. Some of the bigger dental practices also use other languages, mostly Dutch and German.
  5. Other costsApart from the cost of your dental treatment, there are other expenses that you simply have to consider – visa, transport, accommodation, transfer to and from the airport and transfer to and from the chosen clinic – to name a few.


If you followed all of these steps, you should end up with no more than five dentists to choose from and then it becomes much easier to make the best choice for your dental health.
