PHILIPPINE DENTAL TOURISM

By Dr. Joel S. Gutierrez

Dental Tourism Committee Chairman
Philippine Dental Association
“Make happy those who are near, and those who are far will come.” Chinese Proverb

BALIKBAYAN PATIENTS

Dental Tourism is not that new in the Philippines. It has
actually been existing for the past several decades since
Filipino Dentists both from the cosmopolitan avenues and
the urban areas have been exposed to this in their practice.
Our “Balikbayans” or Filipinos abroad come home for vacation
for a much-needed rest, family occasions, school reunions,
or simply to once again feel the warmth of Filipino hospitality
and step on the soil of the land of their birth . A great
number of them take this opportunity to have their dental
treatments as well.

WORLD-CLASS DENTAL TREATMENT

It is a common knowledge that dental treatment is very
costly in foreign countries. For example, the common procedure
of porcelain crown and bridge would regularly cost $800
to $1200 per unit. In the Philippines, the customary rate
for this procedure is merely $100 to $200 and can be done
in a shorter period of time because of the availability
of local but world-class dental laboratories. Other dental
procedures will cost them much less and can save them a
substantial amount they can allot to pay for their airfare
and vacation expenditures.

FOREIGN PATIENTS


On the other hand, foreign patients have also discovered
the expertise, craftsmanship, and professionalism of local
dentists, notwithstanding the hospitality that each and
every practitioner has remarkably and comfortably combined
in his line of service to the patients. Foreign patients,
visiting our local tourist spots, enjoying our white beaches,
tasting our sumptuous and exotic food and delicacies, and
shopping for an array of budget-friendly commodities, can
now include a complete dental treatment in their itinerary.
Excellent dental packages designed and conceptualized for
tourists can be enjoyed simultaneously while vacationing
in the country.

CHARISMA OF FILIPINO DENTISTS

A Filipino dentist can be at par with any foreign dentist.
Through our continuing education, awareness, and access
to modern equipment, local dentists can truly be comparable
to foreign practitioners. We may even be better simply because
of the natural “charisma” of a typical Filipino. We are
compassionate and warm. We are as skilled as the foreign
practitioner but we are friendlier and more enthusiastic!
We are as professional as the foreign dentists but we are
hospitable and more approachable! All these make a whole
lot of difference.
