Dental costs, especially surgery treatments such as wisdom tooth removal, dental implant placement, or premium prosthodontics treatments, may need careful budgeting. Especially, if you don’t have dental insurance.
Fortunately, there’s always an alternative to save your money. Overseas dental treatments have become very popular in the last decade. The main drive behind dental tourism is to find the most affordable yet quality dental care. Part of it is the “tour” or “vacation” factor, so people want to enjoy their stay.
Indonesia is among the popular destinations for a dental trip in Asia. Dentistry is now extremely similar all around the world. Dental education is openly available and connected now. For example, our best dentists travel overseas at least once a year to do continuous studies in countries like the USA, Germany, or Australia. And, a large number of dental professionals in Indonesia speak decent English.
Compared to countries like the US, Australia, and Singapore, the services cost considerably less. It’s because they pay a much lower operational (overhead) costs, like rent, electricity, and staff salary. For comparison, the average rent for a 350 square-feet space in Singapore is about USD3300/month, while in Indonesia the average is USD750/month (in Jakarta area).
For foreigners who plan dental treatments in Indonesia, a quick tip for you: the best clinics are often found in larger cities. Unless you’re fine with traveling all the way just to see your dentist in specific location, you can take advantage of a business trip or vacation to places like Jakarta and Bali.
