Dental Tourism

Year after year, an increasing number of foreigners come to Serbia for vacation but also for dental services because the prices of these services are much cheaper than in Western Europe.

One study showed that in 2008 about 70,000 Britons traveled abroad for dental tourism, and that this number is constantly increasing. Some of them were guests in our dental office, and besides the British, our frequent patients are Germans, Swedes and Dutch, and they are usually interested in placing crowns, bridges and implants, as well as cosmetic dentistry.

Why dental tourism in Serbia?

The answer is simple, due to significantly lower prices with high quality dental care. Price-quality ratio in Serbia is much more favorable than in most EU countries. For many, dental tourism is a great solution because it will get you quality services at affordable prices and you will have the opportunity to get to know the cultural and historical heritage of Serbia and its capital Belgrade.

The most popular terms for dental tourism are during the holiday season, when visitors wish to combine something beautiful and useful.

Visitors coming to Serbia get top dentists and excellent materials which is much more affordable than in their own countries.

Serbian dentists are well known for their expertise, modern offices and affordable prices of dental services – some dental interventions cost up to 75% less than in most European countries and USA.

Prices of dental services in Serbia

Compared to Western Europe and USA, prices for individual dental services in Serbia are up to three times lower.

The cost of dental services in Serbia, together with the return ticket from European cities and even from America and Canada, is often much less than the cost of dental services in Western Europe and America.

For example, the price of a return flight ticket from London to Belgrade, can be purchased for £120. The same dental service, such as root canal treatment, which costs £350 – £500 in UK, costs only £100 in Serbia. See the table below:

UK Serbia
Airplane £0 £120
Transfer £0 £0
Accommodation £0 £0
4 root canals treatment 4 x £400 = £1600 4 x £100 = £400
Tourist visits £0 £300
Total £1600 £820

You save 50% for a minor treatment like this one and you have a chance to visit Serbia. The savings for more complicated procedures, such as dental implants, are in the thousands of pounds.

Installation of five implants in Germany can cost more than 15.000 Euros. In Serbia, it ranges from 3.000 – 4.000 Euros.

While the inspection and consultation with a dentist in Germany and the UK cost up to 100 euros in Serbia this service is charged about 30 euros, but it is often offered for free.

A composite crown in UK, in private practice, can cost up to 600 euros, while in Serbia it is about 220.

Fixed prosthesis cost more than 3.000 euros, while in Serbia the price ranges from 600 to 1.000 euros.

The price of a metal-free ceramic crown in our dental clinic costs 400€ and in Western Europe it can cost as much as 1.500 €. The difference is obvious, and the quality is guaranteed the same, confirmed by a large number of our patients from USA, Canada, Australia, UK, Germany, Austria who are more than satisfied with the organized medical tourism in our dental office.

  3. I am in need of 2 lower back left, 1 upper back left, 1 upper right teeth implants. I have a missing crown upper right in the back (post feels like its just about gone), maybe a couple cavities and veneers due to medication damage (teeth have been gray since beginning).

    Thank you.
