Frequently Asked Questions
When calculating dental costs abroad, you probably have many questions. We have answered some of the most frequently asked questions, but if you don’t see your question and answer here, please feel free to contact us.
I live in the UK. Why should I have dental implants abroad with Dental Holiday?
This answer is easy, cost. A dental implant in the UK can cost up to £2,500 ($4,000 in the USA), but at Dental Holiday, you will pay only £891 with a lifetime guarantee. Crowns, bridges and veneers are also much less expensive. For example, an all-ceramic crown and porcelain veneer can cost just £297 each. Again, you can expect to pay 50-70 % more in the UK and USA. We offer initial quotes by having a short call and then sending you a summary by email. So the more information you give us, the better the quote. At Dental Holiday, all X-rays, consultations and examinations are free! Ninety-seven percent of Dental Holiday UK patients rate us as easy to use and very satisfied with their dental treatment.
Can I get an experienced dentist?
Yes, Dental Holiday has been reviewed as the top dental clinic abroad. At Dental Holiday, our premier dentist, Dr. Marek Salka has been working with UK patients since 2006. He has performed over 1,000’s dental implants, crowns and porcelain veneers.
How do I know the materials are of good quality?
At Dental Holiday, we use only the best quality products and will let you know what products we will be using before you arrive. We don’t use mumbo jumbo jargon or fast-talking phrases to confuse you. If you compare our products to the UK, please make sure you compare apples to apples, not apples and oranges. We’ll tell you about our products so you can make sure you have the same information from your UK dentist.
How many visits will it take for me to complete my treatment?
At your first consultation with Dr. Marek you will find out what is entailed in the treatment and the number of visits. Most dental implants will take 2 to 3 visits in as many months for healing purposes. Crowns, veneers and bridges can be completed in just one visit of 4-5 working days.
Where are you located?
Dental Holiday is located in the spa town of Piestany, Slovakia (hence the name holiday). Piestany is only about 45 minutes drive north from Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia and sits on the River Vah. There are many parks with easy walking paths. You can enjoy our thermal waters and mud baths on Spa Island and have a sauna or massage at one of the many salons in the city.
Ok, but how much does travel, accommodations and transportation cost?
We have flats in the centre of town for a reasonable price and have arrangements with local hotels. Most costs are around €30-35 a night. Transportation to and from Bratislava or Vienna airport is FREE! There are flights daily on Ryan Air (www.ryanair.com) to Bratislava and weekly from many other airlines in and around the London area. Please use the google flights website to find the exact cost for flights from your closest UK city to Bratislava, Slovakia. You should expect to stay at least one night and probably two. Even with expenses for accommodations and travel, your savings in choosing dental implants abroad will still be quite good.
What about the language? Will I be able to communicate in English?
Yes! The Dental Holiday staff speaks English, as does Dr. Marek.
This all sounds good, but what about hidden costs?
Choosing Dental Holiday means there are no hidden costs. For example, the quote for the dental implant is fixed, as are the costs for crowns, how many you want or need, bridges, fillings, extractions, etc. We are very clear about what treatment(s) we are providing, the products we are using, how long it will take, and how many visits over what period. We are transparent with our pricing. Check out our price list. We provide transportation to and from the Bratislava or Vienna airports and will arrange all your accommodations.
