Reading the dental news today I came across a short piece stating how the dead body of a prize-fighter was robbed in Krajova, Romania. Well, not a huge surprise as the global recession made many people desperate, but pulling out a dead person’s teeth is an act not many will follow.

Many industry suffered from the economic downturn, but many brands actually profited out of it. Discount strores like Lidl and Aldi have been doing well, as more and more people choosing them over more expensive options, like Tesco and Asda (http://www.guardian.co.uk/business/2011/feb/01/retail-industry-discount-stores).
The same applies to dental patients. Those, who could afford expensive private dentists, are now looking for alternatives or alternative payment options. The price of a dental cronwn in Hungary is around £200 each, whilst in England more like £600 or more. Many dental patients have been putting off a dental visit for so long their teeth really suffered and now need a lot more attention and treatments. Travelling to Hungary to see a dentist could be a really good option, if researched well before. The General Dental Council of London can also give guidelines.
Budapest is the most populat dental destinantion, but the countryside has also got many great dental surgeries.
