  • Convenient Exchange Rate: Turkey’s dental sector is growing at a rapid pace with many new and modern developments. According to a survey by Statista, Turkey’s revenue from the dental sector will increase from $683.7 million to $704.7 million by 2023. The exchange rate is much higher because the currency is much cheaper, especially against the US dollar and the euro.  They get the same quality of work but at much cheaper prices.
  • Easy access to visas: One of Turkey’s many advantages is its smooth and easy visa process. US passport holders can apply for an e-visa, which is approved within 24-48 business hours. The e-visa for U.S. citizens is valid for a maximum of 90 days. On the other hand, those entering from Europe, such as Germany or Spain, do not need a visa and can enter with a valid passport or ID card. We will give you more info later in this article.
  • Cheap accommodation and transportation: if you choose Turkey, besides dental services, accommodation and transportation are also quite cheap. Usually, accommodation and transportation are part of the dental tourism package you choose. Through these packages, the price of your entire trip decreases and you also do not have to worry about your transportation and accommodation. Dental tourism in Turkey is ideal because most clinics work with hotels and transportation companies that provide a complete medical tourism experience.
  • No additional fees: Unlike other countries, there are no fees in Turkey for other services such as consultation fees, dental fees, staff fees, laboratory fees, etc. Everything is communicated to the patient before the treatment, so there can be no misunderstandings in the future.
