Serbia is becoming an increasingly popular dental tourism destination for the citizens of Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Sweden and even Canada and the U.S. Over the past few years, the number of patients coming to Belgrade, Novi Sad, Niš and other major Serbian dental care centres seeking dental care services has doubled. One of the most popular Serbian destinations is Subotica, which, thanks to the NorDent Dental Clinic alone, welcomes over a thousand dental tourists every year. The town’s tourism organization has awarded NorDent for their considerable contribution to increasing the quality of tourist services and the development, advancement and promotion of tourism in 2013 because the Company has contributed the most to the arrival of the foreign tourists.
Dental tourism is a branch of health tourism that sees individuals or organized groups travel to foreign countries in search of more affordable dental care services. Visitors typically use their stay in Serbia for sightseeing tours and relaxation, so one can really combine the practical and the enjoyable. In this sense, Serbia is a very interesting destination where, in addition to low prices, you can get high-quality dental care services. The Serbian dentists are also renowned outside the country for the quality of their education and practice during their studies. Dental interventions in Serbia can only be performed by specialists who hold a degree from a faculty of dentistry, have completed their student practice, specialized in a certain area and obtained a corresponding license.
Foreigners come to Serbia for a wide range of services, most frequently prosthetics, implantology, oral surgery, teeth whitening, etc. Dental surgeries usually have the latest equipment, while dentists increasingly use state of the art techniques and materials, speak foreign languages and have a wide general education. Dental clinics include equipment used in the world’s most developed countries, such as CAD/CAM technology, based on 3D technology and computer design work, thanks to which prosthetic restorations are created with great precision, from aesthetic ceramic materials, and during only one visit. There are also lasers and laser technology, X-ray machines with digital sensors that render dental films obsolete and emit radiation reduced multiple times in comparison to classic X-ray scanners; intraoral cameras to check the less visible areas of the oral cavity, etc.
When people choose dental tourism, most clinics organize accommodation, air transportation, transfer from the airport to the hotel, as well as optional tours of the city and its surrounding tourist attractions. They inform their clients through their websites and portals, which specialize in this area of tourism, also indicating the option of organizing tour guides and translators.
The development of dental tourism is certainly influenced by a country’s geographic position and traffic infrastructure, or the possibility of arriving at the destination of choice quickly and at a low cost. A major contribution to shaping what Serbian dental tourism has to offer is made by Air Serbia, whose network of destinations and popular prices make coming to Serbia quick and inexpensive. On average, clients stay between seven and ten days, and after that they leave content and with a more beautiful smile.
