The difference when you see a dentist in Hungary

Dental tourism is still a growing craze in Britain. The recession and the difficulty of finding an affordable dentist driven thousands of dental patients away.

Hungary is one of the longest established dental destinations in the World. Most dental patients are from Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Only in the last 7 years people in England and the USA discovered its value in dental tourism.  The specific infrastructure, the history, the technology and the dental education are all highly supporting this dental destination and making it stand out from other countries like Poland, Slovakia and Czech Republic.

Some Hungarian dental clinics are offering dental consultations in England. Not in every case patients meet with the actual dentist, who will be performing the treatments. What is very important for all dental patients is to understand fully the estimated treatment-and price plan.

Dentists in Hungary tend to forward think when it comes to treating patients from abroad. The quality of the treatments and also the type of treatments are being considered based on the fact that the dentist will wish to prevent post-operative complications and lower any potential risks as much as possible.

Few Hungarian clinics offer dental treatments in England, but as good as it sounds, this is not necessarily the best option for everybody. Taking time off work could be an issue, when most treatments need 5-10 working days to complete in Hungary. Having the treatment in England could be a good option, but actually this could also take longer to complete, as appointments are not always so frequent.

Also dental patients need to consider quality over their comfort when deciding on which dental clinic they would trust their teeth on…. Only few surgeries are available in England for treatments, but Hungary is full of highly qualified dental surgeons, not always carrying out intensive marketing, so dental patients might need to carry out a more detailed research to find them. The price of treatment is generally the driving force for those, looking for a dentist abroad, but not always the cheapest is the best nor the most expensive one. Taking years of expertise, qualifications, reputations and recommendations into account would help choosing the right dentist.

Which Dental Technician Should Your Dentist Use?



Dental patients who are seriously considering travelling to Hungary for dental treatment for the first time often have many questions before taking the plunge.

Hungarian dentists and dental technicians are dental care professionals who both play an important role in cosmetic and restorative dentistry. The relationship between the dentist and dental technician is critical when dental patients are seeking quality crowns, dental bridges or dentures. Questions are often raised by the patient about the credibility of the dental technician who will make their new teeth.

One question that repeatedly comes up is whether the dental technician works exclusively for the dentist or whether the dentist sends the technician work to a local laboratory that serves several other dental clinics in the area?

Dentists are medical practitioners who care for your teeth whilst dental technicians manufacture your new teeth in the form of dental crowns, bridges or dentures taken from impressions, measurements and instructions provided by the dentist.

Dentists have a choice whether to employ their own dental technicians who work “in-House” or they can choose to outsource the technician work to a local dental technician laboratory that make prosthetics for several local dental clinics. The dentist and practice manager will make the overall decision based on what is best for the practice but the question remains whether it is better for a patient to choose a dentist who has “In-House” dental technicians or whether it is better to choose a dentist who outsources the technician work to a local laboratory?



“In-House” Dental Technicians

Larger dental clinics with a regular turnover of patients often run their own dental technician laboratories which may give a higher degree of overall control. Also, independent dental technician laboratories may operate a small dental clinic as part of their overall business.

The advantage of in-house technicians may be better overall direction and production control for the dentist with your prescription for new teeth getting priority especially if both are housed within the same building.

A possible disadvantage of having “in-house” dental technicians is that cost may be a factor if a claim on the guarantee is made by the patient.

“Outsourced” Dental Technicians

Dentists who operate small dental clinics usually find it better and more cost effective to outsource their technician work to a local dental technician laboratory.

The advantage is that the technician must produce outstanding quality otherwise the dentist will take his or her business elsewhere. If there is a problem or a guarantee claim arises then the dentist knows that the technician laboratory will have to put it right.

The disadvantage is that the technician laboratory might be across the other side of town which may cause a delay if adjustments are needed before the patient travels home.


Dentists that work a certain way will always argue that their way is better but in reality it comes down to the chemistry between the dentist and technician. Dental technicians who are well qualified, have experience, keep up to date with industry advancements , use high quality materials, have good chemistry with the dentist and take the time to see the patient are always the best. This can be achieved well regardless of the legal arrangement.
