Dental / Health Tourism
What is Health Tourism?
As a result of the meeting of the words ‘health’ and ‘tourism’ which cannot be reconciled in etymological terms, the concept of ‘Health Tourism‘ emerged. The main reason for the emergence of this concept is the increased demand in getting a treatment abroad. In addition, patients who travel to another country for treatment abroad are called ‘health tourists’. In health tourism, the aim of the patient is not only to go to the hospital abroad and get a treatment. The patients enjoy the trip where the clinic or hospital is located, just as if they are on a vacation to rest their soul. Therefore, it is not right to consider health tourism only as ‘treatment abroad’. Health tourism, which is a type of tourism that is of serious importance today, provides both physiological and psychological rest by beautifying the process of rejuvenating the person’s health.
Thanks to the increasing importance of health tourism in the world and the increasing number of health tourists, the health tourism sector has become an important commercial area in developed countries. Health tourism, which contributes greatly to the country’s income, has developed in certain countries than in other ones. Germany, USA, Turkey, India and Thailand are the leading developed countries in terms of health tourism. According to statistical analyses, there is a high number of international health tourists in these countries. Turkey is one of the main countries that offers high-quality services thanks to different and successful treatment methods in various areas of health tourism. Turkey is among the countries that have proven themselves with qualitative results and patient satisfaction in terms of both potential and price in health tourism.
Types of Health Tourism
There are multiple types of health tourism that both offer the patients get their treatment while exploring new places. Health tourism is divided into three fields. These can be stated as medical tourism, which covers treatments in hospitals and polyclinics, thermal tourism covering treatments aimed at rehabilitating and resting the patient, and geriatric tourism, which covers treatments to color the social lives of the elderly and disabled. Under the medical tourism branch there is a type of tourism that we call dental tourism.

The patient’s desire to benefit from advanced health technology abroad due to inadequate health services in his/her country is one of these responses. The desire to travel and meet new places during treatment is one of the main reasons for dental tourism. The appeal of both vacationing in the country where the treatment will be performed and getting a high-quality health care at a more affordable price is one of the most important factors in getting a dental tourist. Finally, the treatment confidentiality preferred by many celebrities is also one of the reasons for dental tourism. Although there are multiple reasons, there is one common cause underlying them all. This common cause is to travel to countries that offer better treatment quality and more affordable dental health care, with the combination of a treatment and vacation.
