The internet is flooded with ads from overseas dentists offering free holidays and airfares along with a cheap smile makeover. Sound good? Yes, but at what risk? Major dental work such as implants or veneers come with a high risk of infection and require follow up checks with the dentist. If this is done over a two-week stay overseas, you may find that when you come home a local dentist may not be too keen to rectify any issues that arise. Where does that leave you? Angry and frustrated. Overseas dentistry is often a lot cheaper because they don't have the strict infection control standards that we practice here in Australia. They may also use inferior materials and products. So, while it's ok to have treatment done overseas, it does come with risks.
