Winston-Salem Journal | LONG BRIDGE: Americans travel to India for dental work, and like their experience
"Google the words “dental tourism in India” and 968,000 entries pop up in 0.15 second. The Internet has encouraged a new form of outsourcing to India, as increasing numbers of Americans fly there to get their teeth cleaned and capped. Some patients mix the procedures with sightseeing. Others simply go for the porcelain bridges and fly right back."
"“Going to a dentist here [U.S.] is so ridiculously expensive,” Pamela said. “The prices are wicked! I had two terribly bad dentists here and had lost all confidence in them.'”
"John Rawold was told by his dentist in Atlanta that he would have to pay about $11,000 for new veneers. Wanting a cheaper alternative, he found Sabadra’s Web site on the Internet."
“I was able to combine a vacation to Mumbai and Goa with expert dental care, including a set of eight high-quality veneers, airfare, 10 nights in five-star hotels and all the extras that come with being on vacation, and I still managed to save more than $5,000,” Rawold wrote on Sabadra’s Web site."
