February 2018| Bagatin Clinic, Croatia
Overall, after seven days, my friend came out with a full smile makeover and a new lease on life.
In December of 2017, I traveled to Poliklinika Bagatin in Zagreb with a dear friend in need of serious dental work. Bagatin's communication before the trip was superb, making us feel like it was the best possible option. The clinic did not fail to impress, with brand new facilities, state-of-the-art technology, and caring, dedicated staff. While the work my friend needed was intensive, we consistently felt like we were in good hands. This level of care would have been inaccessible to us in the US. Bagatin arranged for an airport pickup and dropoff through a partner hotel (even though we chose to find our own accommodations) and even through in some perks for me (like a dermatological visit, a city tour, and a cleaning). Overall, after seven days, my friend came out with a full smile makeover and a new lease on life. This trip was so monumental to both of us that we documented every stage of it and wrote this article upon our return: https://www.verapashphoto.com/single-post/2018/01/11/Zagreb-Story When my friend was told he needed dentures at age 42, he thought the situation was hopeless. His insurance in the US only covered dentures and anything outside of that would have taken 1-2 years worth of appointments and over $25,000 out of pocket, though his teeth were salvageable. We began researching dental tourism due to anecdotal stories, though it didn't feel like something we could do alone. Trying to accomplish this was daunting, with long wait times for inquiries, insufficient reviews for clinics, difficulty finding English-speakers, and time zone changes. When I consulted with Emma at Qunomedical, all of that changed and dental tourism suddenly seemed like the only viable option for my friend. Qunomedical was immediately responsive and maintained an excellent level of communication through the process. Emma listened to all of our concerns, matching us to the best clinic possible based on my friend's X-Rays. The first match was exactly what I was hoping to find. My friend's life is forever changed for the better and we could not have pulled this off without the help of Qunomedical's dedicated team.
