Some information about Czech Dentists and dentistry in the Czech Republic:
Having myself experienced various european dentists: in the UK where I was brought up, in Germany, Spain, and Italy where I lived for longer periods, and also those of the Czech Republic, I have found most to be pretty good.
[ - I have since changed my mind on UK dentists from what I keep hearing from UK dental patients who have been over here. My old dentist in London near St Paul's - in 1979 - was a great dentist and so was his surgery and all was done on the NHS with minimal waiting time, but the news I keep getting now is that all this has changed and that most dentists in the UK today have now become private clinics and that now it's all about money. Or that NH dentists take their time - like in waiting for a plank to warp]
But each good dentist has his good or exaggerated price and short or very long work spans for getting the job done.
Recently, one dental visitor from London told me that in the UK the procedure in getting a tooth repaired is as follows:
Sure - this may be a bit of an exaggeration, but there again probably not by much.
Czech dentists operate under stringent, top European and worldwide standards and are easily compared to USA, German, British, Spanish, Italian and Swiss dentists in all aspects - apart from the costs and times.
For a fraction of the price in a much shorter time span - in Kromeriz or Zlin, you can have your teeth repaired, get fillings done, have crowns set, veneers fitted or have dental implants and even more complicated work such as bone grafts done whilst enjoying a short dental holiday and saving a fortune on your UK etc. dental bills.
If you have teeth problems and have been quoted a fortune by your local dentist for the work to be done and done in a longer time period - then you might consider a trip to the Czech Republic Kromeriz or to Zlin.
Kromeriz and Zlin are just a 90 minute flight from Stansted with Ryan air all year round.
The money and bother you will save are unequaled anywhere else.
Examples of Czech dental treatment costs:
Elsewhere in Europe a similar 'job' would have cost around Euro 20.000.
The chosen titanium bolt was then inserted and this was done under local anaesthetic and took 30 minutes.
As this was the upper jaw, a 5 month healing period was required between the bolt insertion and the ceramic tooth placement.
5 months later on the second visit - on a Monday the implant was checked out, a cast was taken of the upper teeth to make the porcelain tooth and the implant was prepared for the tooth to be placed onto it.
The whole process of 2 visits, dental work and top material - the titanium bolt - cost a total of Euro 750.
In Prague this same treatment would cost nearly twice as much as in Kromeriz, so about Euro 1500, which is still half of the Swiss quote .. but is still Euro 750 more than in Kromeriz.
So going by the treatment Simona and I myself received, or the two examples quoted above, it must be pretty obvious that even going over to Kromeriz or Zlin several times, there is much money and time bother to be saved.
Want to compare
Amazing, and in my next life I want to be an N.Y. City dentist !
Why is dental work so professional but then still so cheap in the Czech Republic ?
Especially outside of Prague ?
It's professional because if the communists were good at one thing - it was providing top medical treatment to the people. This aspect has gotten even more professional since the comrades got thrown out in 1989 and in the last 17 years Czech dental services have caught up to match if not to better all the latest technology available elsewhere like in the USA and rest of Europe.
[ One of the dentists we work with has a mini mouth camera and a monitor above the dental chair and will be happy to show you around your mouth where every nook and cranny and the state of your teeth is visible on-screen.
Cheap dental repairs ?
Someone such as a teacher in Kromeriz, who earns about Euro 350 a month can't be expected to pay Euro 800 for a single porcelain crown can they ?
Dental services you may
Because of the overwhelming demand for dental treatment, probably due to our offering top dental treatment organization services in the Czech Republic and working with top Czech dentists and implantologists who are experts in the field - We now work with four Czech dentists.
The Kromeriz and Zlin dentists will undertake the following dental treatments:
The dentists in Kromeriz and Zlin do not hike prices.
Sometimes the dentist will add a suggestion or two but this is then up to you.
So he left Kromeriz with 3 new teeth instead of only two.
Cost for treatment
In general - for any dentistry work done in Zlin/Kromeriz - from fillings to crowns or implants - the cost is up to 5 times cheaper than if done in the UK, Scotland. Ireland, USA, Germany, Italy, Switzerland etc.
In Prague, dental treatment costs are at least two to three times as much as in Kromeriz or Zlin and also everything else will cost you 4 times as much.
It's your choice and teeth and with all the information on this web site you could probably fly to Prague, rent a car and drive 100 km out of Prague to the next largest town and find a decent dentist all on your own.
That's why we now work with four dentists and we can get you an appointment within 2 week's notice.
Calming the nerves for patients who are scared s**t of dentists.
This applies to ALL patients who have come over to Kromeriz or Zlin to get their teeth done.
So basically - Czech dentists - or at least the ones I take patients to in Kromeriz and Zlin do take care and time to administer the anaesthetic
Secondary option to feeling great at the dentist.
But then most dental patients who come over here to the Czech Republic come for three reasons:
And some of the past patients who have been over have bought a house in Kromeriz so they must have had fun.
When requesting an appointment - if you include precise details of what you need or what your dentist has told you you need - you will receive e precise cost estimate and timeline back via e-mail.
