Getting to your dental treatment abroad

Multiple past patients claimed that their journey to us was:

“cheaper, quicker and less hassle than getting the train or driving down the M25 and parking in the center of London”

With 11 UK airports flying directly to Bratislava or Vienna airport, you can be with us in a little over 2hrs time.

As our valued patient, one of our complimentary drivers will be waiting at the airport for you holding their “Dental Holiday” sign. They will pick you up and drop you off at the dental clinic or your arranged accommodation (depending on when you arrive). Our drivers pick up and drop off any day, any time, and even at weekends.

We also return you from the clinic or your local accommodation free of charge to ensure that your trip to us is as hassle-free as possible.

We recommend you travel with a family member or friend, which often makes the journey easier. Even if they are not having dental treatment abroad with us, they can still use our free clinic transfer service along with you.

What are the typical flight costs involved?

Our patients report that the average flight cost return to Bratislava or Vienna airport and back from the UK is typically around £100. If you can avoid the summer, Easter or Christmas holidays, you can often get a bargain as low as £40 return.

With the flight cost savings, dental treatment, good weather, food, shopping and city-hopping experience in the heart of Europe, there’s no excuse not to go on a “dental holiday” with us if you need to get your teeth done.

Here’s how to get that sorted.

1. Choose from one of these direct, non-stop Dental Holiday flight options from the UK & Ireland (2hrs flight times)

  • All London airports:
    • Stanstead (1x every day – Ryanair Bratislava)
    • Luton (1x every day – Wizzair Bratislava)
    • Gatwick (1x every day – EasyJet Vienna)
    • Heathrow (4x every day – Austrian Airlines & British Airways)
  • Birmingham (3x every week – Ryanair Bratislava)
  • Liverpool (2x every week – Ryanair Vienna)
  • Bristol (every 2 days)
  • Leeds Bradford (2x a week – Ryanair Bratislava)
  • Manchester (3x a week – Ryanair Bratislava)
  • Dublin (1x every day – Ryanair Bratislava)
  • Edinburgh (2x a week – Ryanair Bratislava)

All these airports fly direct to Bratislava or Vienna airport sandwiched between the borders of Hungary, Austria, Czech and Poland.

Bratislava is the capital of Slovakia, often incorrectly called Bratislavia by Brits. Vienna is the capital of Austria (not Australia) and is often incorrectly called “Venice”.

(think Mozart – not kangaroos or gondola boats)

These Bratislava and Vienna airports are located within 60km of each other.

How long does it take from the airport to the clinic or your accommodation?

The journey time from the airport to the dental clinic in Piešťany typically takes 45 mins from Bratislava airport, depending on the level of traffic.

2. Please check the dates with us first

As we’re usually fully booked 2-3 months ahead, please email us and check that your ideal day of travel and dental treatment fits in with our clinics’ calendar first.

We’ll reply positively to go ahead and book the flights or offer you some alternative dates to come over for your dental treatment abroad.

If you’re planning to potentially have dental treatment done on your first visit to us to save an extra visit, please allow an overnight stay. And if it’s a full mouth reconstruction, please allow 3-4 days with us.

(you can see the timelines for various types of dental treatments abroad here)

3. Booking your flights

Google flights offer a very good overview of all your flight options to us, or check out the websites of the flight companies directly:

4. Choosing your accommodation

Depending on which dental clinic you’ve been advised to visit by our team, you’d want to sort out where you would like to stay overnight. (If you are staying overnight, that is, and not just coming for a free consultation session with us)

You can book your accommodation through sites like or or simply book through us, as we have some deals with some hotels.

Our self-catering apartments in Piešťany cost €35 per night and €50 in Bratislava.

Local hotels in Piešťany start from €50 upwards, and in Bratislava from €80 upwards.

These two links should help you decide about that:

5. Put it together and send it to us

We hold no “pencil me in” patients in our calendar, so once the booking has been made, please send the flight and accommodation details to us by email.

We need it by email as all our drivers and admin staff need to have a hard copy. Please also mention your accommodation preference if we will book it for you.

We’ll then arrange everything on this end and send you a detailed email confirmation of your dental treatment appointment with us.

6. You’re almost there…

A day or so before you visit us, you may get an email to confirm your visit.

Upon arrival, your driver will give you keys to your apartment if you’ve booked that with us. He’ll also tell you the time of your dental appointment if he’s not taking you directly to the clinic that day.

We promise to do our best to make this the most enjoyable, painless and satisfying visit to the dentist ever! If there is anything else that we can provide for you to make your visit as hassle-free as possible, please do let one of our dental team members know.

  1. Hi,
    I had my original work done in 2014 and I have just broken one of my crowns off my bridge. How much time would I need for you to mend it? I’m wondering if it will need a new bridge piece as it’s the piece covering the tooth peg. Flights are a bit hit and miss and it looks like I can come out on a Sunday and return on the following Wednesday late afternoon. would this give you enough time to do it?

    • Hi Celia, could you perhaps send me a photo of it? Dr. Marek is on holiday this week, but if I send him a photo on WhatsApp aI’m sure he’ll be able to comment on how long you need with us to resolve it, and also what would need to be done.
      Sunday to Wednesday seems fine in any case as long as you’d visit our Piešťany clinic (the Bratislava clinic Wednesday to Friday)


  2. i’m just wondering how much it would cost in total to have 3 implants done (not including flights/hotel etc)? am i reading it correctly that there would be 2 visits?


    • Mr Thomas – 3 dental implants, including abutments & crowns in our clinic, would be around £3000 and can be done in one or two visits depending on the difficulty of your specific case. We have a lifetime guarantee on our dental implants and have placed over 13,000 so far, achieving some of the highest success rates for our particular type of dental implant – Neodent by Straumann.
      I’ll send you an email with this information in detail. If you’d like to chat about it on the phone, you can call anytime or schedule a free consultation call with one of our treatment coordinators.

  3. I am deaf, so as you can imagine, it is nigh impossible to lip read on the telephone – do you think it would be possible to have a private email exchange for treatment on my tree damaged front toothy pegs?

    Needless to say I am something of a phobic with regards to dentistry, having suffered for 5 years in pain after treatment. I just want to smile again.

    • Hello Mr. Warwick, and thank you for leaving a message. Please use our contact form or chatbot on this website to discuss treatment for your front 3 damaged teeth.
      We are a dental phobia-certified clinic, so we are well trained in handling patients with fear and putting them at ease through the latest painless dental treatment technology.
      We look forward to discussing this with you over email and helping you smile again.

  4. Hi
    I originally had my major dental work done in October 2011.The implants were done in Harley Street, London / Hungary,
    I would like to attend your clinic around the end of Sept2021 Covid restriction permitting.
    Can you advise on Covid 19 restrictions on entering from the UK.
    Would you please quote cost for the following work and the number of days required.
    I have a up to date scan and plan. Send me your E-Mail Add.

    • Hi Ian, what is it exactly that you need doing? If you’re vaccinated, – it’s easy – no restrictions. I’ll send you any email right now with our contact details so that you can clarify what you need. Sincerely, Daniel

  5. Hi, many years ago I had both of my lateral incisors crowned as they were small ‘fang’ like teeth. Approximately one week ago one of these crowns snapped off including whatever remaining tooth was left inside it, leaving a small amount of tooth/root material just inside the gumline. I am not experiencing any pain at all but obviously I now have a large gap at the front of my mouth and need to have it dealt with as soon as possible! I have spoken to my NHS UK dentist who has advised me that my options are as follows;
    1. remove remaining root and have a denture
    2. remove remaining root, have a denture for 6 months and then have it replaced with a crown covering the two teeth either side of the missing one.
    Alternatively, if I wish to pay for private dentistry I could have an implant.
    My concerns are that;
    The remaining crown on my opposite lateral incisor is quite old with a black line around the top and the front incisor next to it has a discoloured filling in it making the two teeth look quite unsightly and I think that if I’m having one tooth at the front of my mouth put right I may as well have all the front ones sorted otherwise I will still have an unpleasant smile. Dealing with these three teeth would just leave one remaining front incisor which would probably look out of place against the three new teeth so this would also probably require some work too!
    I’m not sure what my options are but I don’t have infinite amount of money and I also have a fear of the dentist (associated discomfort) and really don’t like the thought of having implants into my jaw.
    Can you please advise what you think would be the best course of treatment for me.
    Thank you.

    • Hi Cecilia,
      I am sorry to hear about that.
      The black line around your existing crown is the metal showing through, as it must have been a metal based crown. In our clinic we would fit you with metal free crowns to ensure that this doesn’t happen in the future again.
      A 2 point bridge to replace the missing tooth would cost 2 x £297 – £594 with us and the single crown on the other side £297.
      A single dental implant, abutment & crown is £891.
      It’s hard to say what’s best for you without seeing you in person, but if you send me a photo through this link contact dental holiday it should work, and I’ll see if I can advise you better…

  6. Hi. I have a full set of upper false teeth & only 6 teeth on the lower. I would if possible like to have them removed and a full set of implants to upper & lower. But as I have worn dentures for many years would it be possible and how much would it cost?
    Thank You

  7. Hi there was thinking of havin a consultation early November time. Would be flying from Luton how many days would I need to stay in Bratislava to see you. Thanks Simon

    • Dear Simon,
      The length of stay all depends on what type of dental treatment you’d like to have. As a general rule, dental implants require 3 one day visits over 2-3 months, and crowns / bridges / veneers need just one visit of 4 working days if they include 8 teeth or less…
      Does that help?

  8. Hi,
    We are thinking of coming over in August this year probably arrive Sunday 12th in the evening and return Friday 17th in the evening. Just a couple of questions.
    Are these dates available for treatment.
    You mention 5 year guanantee on treatment, what conditions apply to the guarantee.Would we have to visit you every year for check ups or something like that.
    The treatment will be for my wife Bernadette and she would like to know if crowns can be mixed with vaneers. And also can a vaneer be fitted onto an existing tooth which has a filling, or is it best to just have a crown instead.
    We think that treatment she will require will be approx 11 vaneers or crowns or mix of both. Will 5 working days be sufficient for you to complete treatment.
    Lokk forward to hearing from you.
    Bryan Thomas

    • Dear Bryan,
      Those dates and the time scale is fine with us, once you have booked the flights, please do send the details to me along with your desired choice of accommodation, so that I can arrange everything for you.
      The guarantee terms can be found here: and yes crowns and veneers can be mixed. As for the tooth with the filling, it all depends on how deep the filling is. If it’s a large filling then a crown may be better, but after seeing your x-ray in the clinic, we can advise you on what’s best for sure.
