Dental tourism has become increasingly popular lately, especially with consumers feeling the pinch of the recession. Mexican clinics target US patients. Eastern European practices treat British nationals. It's big business these days, with Latin America, Eastern Europe and Asia offering low-cost dental care to international patients.
