Travelling for dentistry is becoming a lot more common, which includes getting dental implants abroad. Naturally, people looking to take such a trip want to find the best country for dental work, though most find that there are various great options. If you're searching too, you should familiarise yourself with what are considered the best countries for dental implants.

Whether you're after some single implants abroad - or an all-on-4 or all-on-6 procedure, which is essentially implants covering the entire jaw; abroad is always cheaper, and the majority of dentists will offer excellent care similar to or better than what you’d receive at home.

What Is the Best Dental Clinic in the World?

Choosing the clinic where you'd like to have your procedure done is always a personal process. Your individual needs aren't going to match anyone else's, neither will the factors that attract you to a certain place. If you are indeed extending your search worldwide, then it's impossible to determine who is best qualified to do dental implants out of all the reputable dentists you encounter anyway. What it comes down to is finding the best place to get dental implants according to your own set of requirments.

That's why it's worth looking globally; when all is weighed up, getting dental implants abroad is the perfect option for many patients. Countries like Turkey and Hungary have amazingly advanced dental facilities, and because the cost of living and wages are lower than in the UK, these are two prime examples of countries that can offer the best price for dental implants. Hotels, airport transfers, and medication are typically rolled into package deals, letting you save even more on a quality procedure. We elaborate on these two destinations and more below.

Best dental implant country Turkey

1. Turkey

It’s no surprise that Turkey is consistently ranked as one of the top countries for dental implants. Due to its accommodating policies on medical tourism, Turkey is home to some of the best dentists in the world, meaning there are lots of happy patients who swear by it as the best place to get dental implants.

Qunomedical patients enjoy top-of-the-line facilities and get to relax after their surgery in a gorgeous holiday setting. Many patients getting treatment also stay for a few weeks to recuperate and relax in beautiful cities like Istanbul.

If you’re looking to get a single dental implant, prices start at £543, around 70% cheaper than you’d be paying in the UK. So additionally to being one of the best countries for dental work, Turkey is also the cheapest country for dental implants. Flights to Turkey are also very low with budget airlines offering multiple flights a day.


  • With such a highly developed medical tourism sector, you'll easily find a number of exceptional clinics that are nationally certified and recognised by international accreditation.

  • A highly competitive market drives many clinics' standars up and prices down, giving you the chance to find some amazing deals.

  • Turkey is an incredible place to visit. With a rich history, fascinating culture and beautiful coast-lined landscapes, going to Turkey for treatment can let you enjoy the country too.


  • Turkey's thriving medical tourism means a few sub-par clinics are also on the scene. These can be avoided by reading reviews, or, to be really sure you're getting high quality, by booking through Qunomedical.

  • Turkey can be very hot in summer, which some patients may not like. Since most clinics are based in bigger towns or cities, the humidity can also become quite intense.

2. Hungary 

Hungary is well known for its medical services, including its thriving dental sector. In fact, for the many travellers coming for dental surgery abroad, dental implants are one of the most popular treatments.

4. Czech Republic

As with the aforementioned countries, the benefits of having a dental implant in the Czech Republic are its fantastic standards of care and cheap rates, which means you could easily find the best price for dental implants there. The capital city of Prague is where many of the country's most qualified dentists have built their luxury clinics.  After your treatment, you can explore the historic city and even try a legendary chimney cake. It's also quite easy to fly to, located centrally in Europe and served by various airlines.

Best dental implant country Mexico

5. Mexico

American’s favour Mexico as the best place to get dental implants, not only because you get the same quality for a lot cheaper, but because it's very convenient for them to just cross over the land border. For Europeans though, Mexico is a lot further to travel than most people are willing to go. However, if you're from Europe and are looking for a long holiday or somewhere to stay for a while, then Mexico is an excellent option.

Clinics like Sani Dental and Bokanova Dental Center offer highly specialised dentistry in the most modern facilities, with plenty of experience and dedication serving international patients. What's also great about these clinics is their location in Playa del Carmen, just south of Cancun, where you'll enjoy stunning beaches and scenery, as well as savings on quality dental treatment.

6. Germany

It’s well known that German medicine is at the forefront of excellent care. This is why Germany is known as one of the best European countries for dental implants. 

Expect experienced specialists in implant technology as well as some of the best materials and equipment to make your surgery painless, quick, and most importantly, successful. Although, like the UK, Germany is not the cheapest country for dental implants, the difference is in the quality of treatment and the equipment used.

7. Thailand

Jetting off to Thailand is a dream holiday, so why not combine it with some dental care? The jewel of South East Asia, Thailand is also renowned for its dentistry. Expect amazing dental clinics with highly trained dentists for a fraction of the price you’d be paying in the UK.

Phuket Smile Signature Dental Clinic is a highly reputable clinic whose excellence is recognised by multiple awards and accreditations, including from the ISO.

Their affordable packages typically include hotel and airport transfer, and with a dedicated English-speaking customer service team, they ensure international patients enjoy a smooth experience.

8. United Kingdom

The stereotype that the British have bad teeth is actually incorrect, a recent study showed that the UK ranked 6th of our 26 European countries for dental health. So it’s no surprise that the UK has excellent dentists and dental care. 

A single dental implant in the UK will, on average, cost you £1,866. More complex treatment like an all-on-4 procedure with multiple implants can skyrocket to over £10,000. Unfortunately, the NHS does not cover dental implants at all, so while private dentists can offer fantastic care, it’s unlikely that you’ll be able to find a competitive price.
