If he is one of the dentists that has done some of the terrible things I have seen then I would love to have a few choice words with him. Tell him to come on boards and defend himself against the archive of evidence I have on record, he can come to my clinic and I am sure I have one of two of his patients on file.
There are two things here. One is a quick - 5 crowns in a week holiday. The other is all dentists in other countries. I think we agree that No. 1 is bad. But to insult every dentist in a country in which you cannot drink the water (ie less well off countries) is just not on.
Myself and mother are two cases of botched dentistry in Ireland. I wouldn't tar you all with one brush. I will however avoid you for the rest of my life.

Do you fly to Hungary or would he fly back?
This is a serious question btw
I have weighed up the pros and cons and for me having a dentist qualified outside of Ireland is worth not being able to go to them at the drop of a hat. I could go to an Irish dentist if I needed to. But I will not. Newry for orthodontic treatment, Budapest for all other dental work.
