The World Tourism Organization (WTO) has defined medical tourism as “Tourism associated with travel to health spas or resort destinations where the primary purpose is to improve the traveler’s physical well being through a process comprising physical exercises and therapy, dietary control, and medical services relevant to health maintenance”. According to Mary Tabacchi, Health Tourism is any kind of travel to make yourself or a member of your family healthier.
Dental Tourism specifically involves the people who seek dental care outside their own health care system and it’s usually accompanied by a vacation. Dental Tourism alone contributes upto 10% of the total medical tourism in India. Every year the number of tourists visiting India for dental treatments is increasing exponentially. In India one gets quality service at cheaper rates, this is also one of the major reasons behind the increase in the number of tourists that visit with the aim of getting dental treatments. In India there are over 350 dental colleges, and over 1,50,000 medical practitioners and over 50,000 fresh graduates enter into the workforce. The number is increasing every year. The dental equipment’s market is also increasing annually with the rate of 20 to 30%. Subsequently, India has also become the major supplier of dental equipment to the less developed countries.
Not just that but also more and more people are now concerned about their physical appearance, so it has been observed that there has been an increase in the demand for Cosmetic Dentistry, teeth whitening, treatment of chipped teeth etc. It also hints on the fact that more and more people are becoming aware about the dental treatment procedures, the new techniques because of which several foreign companies have started to invest in Indian Dental Market.
One of the major reasons as stated above is the fact that many countries do not cover dental treatments under insurance. The fact that dental treatments are not covered under insurance, the patients have to pay a huge amount just to get a normal implant done! A single implant alone can cost them upto LAKHS!! whereas in India you can get the treatment done under 20,000 INR.
