I asked about the costs of a specific type of treatment I didn't ask for an opinion about Dental Treatment Abroad but I got one anyway. I also didn't lash out I simply had a difference of opinion and your incorrect about my assumptions too . All treatments may not be equal but it has more to do with the specific Dentist and not the country they practice in. And the very suggestion that Irish Dentists aren't trying to protect their interests by putting people off travelling abroad for less expensive treatment is laughable. They must think people are very naive

But its ok for you to question the credentials of dentists practicing in countries other than Ireland because they are able to offer a more affordable treatment plan

There are great dentists and terrible dentists in every country. The question your not asking is are these good dentists operating in these high speed dental tourism pclinics which cater to bargain hunter patients that fly away, and use middlemen that get commission based on how much the patient spends. The answer is no, these great dentists are treating the local population where they can do everything right in and the correct sequence with the correct healing times. I could offer it at the same price if I will willing to do it that fast, to that standard and use medical devices made to that standard, but fortunately my patient live local to me and I have a reputation to try and protect, as well as ethics to uphold. I also have to deal with complications and long term maintenance.

All dentist will tell you they are great. When was the last time a barber told you they were going to give you a bad haircut?

There’s great dentist everywhere around the world, including Zanzibar. What they are trying to point out is the risk of something going wrong and having little to no comeback and aftercare. You asked and got a guide price. If you want to go to Turkey/Hungary/Uzbekistan then I wish you the best of luck with it. There’s no need to complain about how much of a rip off you think dental costs are in Ireland as there’s no doubt a lot more costs involved here in Ireland

Doctors going from Ireland to Australia are doing it to work ina better staffed health system with a reasonable quality of life where you aren't expected to do 80 hour weeks and do 24 and 48 hour shifts.

I don't know why anyone would cheap out on their teeth. People spend money on all sorts but will neglect the essentials.

But dentists are so much more important than barbers.

After all, hair will grow again but our teeth are our teeth for life.
