Dental tourism in Ukraine is gaining momentum. An absolute leader among requests the Agency receives is for dental prosthetics. All kinds of dental prosthetics are in high demand: metal-ceramic crowns, metal-free ceramic, veneers, lumineers and even crowns on implants.
How can Dental Travel Agency arrange a dental tour to Ukraine?
We will look at a dental tour using the example of our patient Olga (50 years old), who contacted Dental Travel Agency for dental prosthetics.
Our customer needed 15 metal-ceramic crowns and 6 aesthetic crowns on zirconium oxide carcasses. The patient lives in St. Petersburg, and decided to come to Kiev in order to combine business with pleasure using her 14-day vacation.
Previously the patient consulted the dentist at the clinic, and according to the dentist her teeth were prepared for prosthetics.
Based on the data provided by the patient a preliminary treatment plan was made up, financial calculations agreed, extensive cultural programme prepared and the date of arrival agreed. Communication was conducted through e-mails and Skype.
14.40 A representative of Dental Travel Agency meets the tourist on the platform and takes her to the booked apartment.
15.20 Olga asked for few hours of rest, so the consultation was scheduled for 18.00.
18.00 Consultation in the dental clinic with three experts: a prosthodontist, a dentist and a periodontist.
During the consultation: periapical x-rays of some teeth were taken, an instrumental examination of the mouth was done. The treatment plan was amended, some changes were made and the financial plan was finally agreed. Apart from the above mentioned crowns the patient asked for a gentle whitening of her 6 lower teeth for which the periodontist recommended vector therapy. She also needed an endodontic treatment of three posterior teeth. Visits to the dental clinic were scheduled.
