Is Dental Tourism in Chandigarh Safe?

We suggest you do thorough research about the clinic and the treating dentist:

  • Find out the qualifications of the dentist. The dentist could be a BDS and may have done specialization in any field; MDS or a Fellowship program.
  • They should be accredited by the Indian Dental Association (similar to ADA membership in the U.S.) and licensed by the State Dental Council.
  • As English is an official language in India, so the language barrier does not exist.
  • Check if the clinic has an in-house dental lab. In-house labs quicken the prosthesis turnover and maintain higher quality standards. As a result, the dentist can give input immediately.
  • Sterilization is of extreme importance. Hence, the dental clinic must meet the set international standards.
  • A long experience in dealing with foreign patients and dental work is recommended.
