UK dental treatment abroad code of practice compliance:

accredited dental clinic abroad

As dental tourism grows to become a worldwide phenomenon, increasing attention is being paid to issues such as quality of treatment, accreditation of surgeons and dentists, hospitals and clinics. Sometimes these issues are raised by patients, and sometimes by professional bodies such as associations representing doctors, dentists and cosmetic surgeons.

At Smile Clinic in Slovakia, we are aware of these concerns and are keen to reinforce the standards which the dental tourism industry is gradually adopting.

Therefore, since 2008 we have been in compliance with the “dental treatment abroad code of practice” – an assessment by external UK consultants who strive to ensure the best quality of dental treatment, accreditation of dentists, hospitals and dental clinics abroad.

The results of the report and its criteria which we met 100% can be downloaded here:

Dental Holiday Clinic Approved

UK Dental Phobia Certified


For many dental phobics, while visiting the dentist fills them with dread, the implications of not visiting the dentist make them equally stressed and anxious. Their situation feels futile and their imagination runs away with them. They can’t ‘manage’ their phobia – nor can they face it.

What many dental phobics do not realise is just how common their phobia is. In recent years, great strides have been made by the dental profession in recognising that many patients need more support, more advice and more customer care from their dentists.

Our team at Smile Clinic in Slovakia has been specially trained and equipped to deal with dental phobics.
For many dental phobics, the first step with regards to visiting a dentist abroad after a long period away is now much easier. They can talk to us, find out about advice and support, explain about their phobia and discuss how to move forward.

We are the only rated clinic in Slovakia, so our 50+ reviews, are well ahead of all the other providers in Hungary or Poland for example where there is greater number of overall reviewed dental clinics, but with much less independent reviews.

All these independent reviews can be read here.
