Tips on Choosing the Right Dentist
- Price: Although dental services in Hungary are cheaper than in Western Europe don’t be tempted by too much discounts and freebies. Always ask what exactly is included in the price of the treatment. Watch out for any possible hidden extras, like x-rays, pain killers etc, consultation. You can bring with your previous x-ray and other test results.
- Guarantees: Check what guarantees the dentist offer on his/her work.
- Look for testimonials or letters of praise by happy clients. Clinics often publish them on their website. Search for forum discussions about dental treatment in Budapest. You can ask for reference telephone numbers for people the dentist treated in your area. For me it’s a major decision factor what others say about a certain service or product.
- English speaking staff: make sure that the staff speaks English, especially the dentist. Remember that dental treatments aren’t very pleasant in itself and you’ll be in a foreign city with people speaking a rather strange language, Hungarian. You’ll feel more convenient and assured if the clinic staff speaks good English.
- Most dentists specialize in treating patients from foreign countries, so good master of English is a must for them. During a first consultation or telephone conservation you can make certain of their command of English.
- Clinic facilities and equipment: check that the clinic is well equipped with modern facilities and technology. A large clinic with professional equipment, spacious waiting areas and other services suggest that the clinic made long-term investments and wants their clients to be feel comfortable and satisfied not only with the dental service but the surrounding environment.
Dental Teatment Expereinces
I was lucky to be a patient of a very good lady dentist in Budapest, 11 years ago, April 1997. I have been in Budapest many times after this year. In my visits of 2004, 2005, and 2006, I couldn’t find my dentist, because of many changes in Budapest.
The clinics have changed two times location, but both places I couldn’t find a dentist clinic in that time.
I remember only the first name of my doctor, her nationality was Iranian, she finished her studies in Hungary, she worked with a permanent visa in Budapest, her clinics locatins have been: one close to the Opera (Andrasy Ut) and the other one, in 1997 March-April, Close to Vaci Utca and McDonalds Restaurant, as well close to Duna. I can’t remember exactly the street’s names. Her First Name is Parisa and I don’t know her surname.

I picked Budapest Dental Care (1051 Budapest Petofi tér 3.) because of their reasonable prices and made a visit to their clinic this September.
All the information I received initally were really correct which included a detailed treatment plan and price calculation. Their dentist, a nice lady called Valeria is a real professional, she was extremely helpful and eased my anxiety right at the beginning. I would recommend this clinic to everybody looking for an excellent service for his/her money, it was really worth every penny.

My dentist here in Ireland told me he was giving me a special price to replace an old crown on one of my front teeth. The special price was €800 for one crown.
I went to Budapest and had four crowns done in the front of my mouth for €800. I was delighted with the professional care my sister and I received in Budapest.
I have always been afraid of dentists and squeamish about injections and drilling. I now have no fear whatsoever four crowns and three fillings later. Dr. Kuncsik of BUDAPESTDENTISTS.COM was incredibly gentle, caring and very concerned that we would not feel any discomfort that was unnecessary.
His attention to detail like the shape, size and colour of the crowns and how the gum would look was second to none. The equipment was new, advanced and up-to-date and hygiene standards excellent.
It was wonderful to be able to go and get all that work done in one week and we also managed to fit in lots of sightseeing, shopping and a visit to the wonderful thermal baths in Budapest.
I estimated that, taking in the cost of the flight, accommodation and dental work, I still saved in the region of €1,500 and I’m very pleased with the outcome and have had absolutely no problems with my teeth since my return.
