Our History

Our History

Hungarian Dental Travel  was founded during the 2004 National Health Service (NHS) dental crisis to help British & Irish dental patients get high quality dental care abroad.

At the time people found it near impossible to register with a dentist and going private was simply out of the question due to the high cost of private dental care.

Our first patient was Mike Johnson from March, Cambridgeshire who went to Hungary for dental implants and a full set of crowns. He was absolutely delighted and featured in the Peterborough Evening Standard (Now Peterborough Telegraph) after his treatment finished in 2005.

Research & Development was key to our success at the time. We was one of the first to develop a substantial vetting procedure to check out new dentists before working with them as well as a monitoring procedure to ensure that high standards are maintained.

Mr Sam Paggi became our first American patient to travel from San Francisco, USA in 2006.

In  2007 we engaged with the General Dental Council in London to register our dentists so that we could bring our dentists into the UK to promote our service. This enabled us to take a closer look at our dentists as the GDC procedure is very stringent.

We became quite famous in 2008 for our “inflatable dental clinic” which gained global media attention. We wanted to promote our service  by showcasing our dentists. They had recently become GDC registered and patients were keen to speak to a dentist before they traveled. Our story travelled around the world and  we featured in most of the media in the UK as well as the British Dental Journal and the New York Times.

From 2009 to 2015 “Hungarian Dental Travel” offered consultations and dental treatment in London. Unfortunately the best Dentists do not want to travel between Budapest & London on a regular basis.

In 2016 we are delighted to have an “all female” dental team headed by Dr Zsofia who works from our newly refurbished “state of the art” dental clinic in Budapest. We also have our own dental technician laboratory providing the very best dental restorations and prosthetics.

If you are interested in having treatment Budapest for a fraction of the average UK cost then give us a call on
