The 21st century is witnessing a boom in the oral disease load due to remarkable changes in individual’s dietary habits. On the other hand, the awareness towards dental health is also increasing at equal pace with an increase in the number of people or aspirants wishing to seek appropriate solutions to their dental problems. But, finding appropriate solutions to their dental problems is challenging from financial perspective and uncompromised working hours due to busy working schedule as people wish to get rid of their oral problems with minimal expenditures and limited time. How can it be possible? Dental tourism could be one of the most suitable solutions. Dental tourism also called dental vacations is a part of medical tourism. It involves individuals seeking their dental care outside their local oral health care systems which is accompanied by a vacation. The total cost of dental care, meals, accommodations, transportation and side trips to tourist attractions is less than the price of local care. This innovative concept is gaining momentum in the recent times. It is reported that dental tourism constitutes 10% of Indian medical tourism which might grow to an extent of 30% by 2015. As the world becomes ever more interdependent and competitive, technique, material and technological advances spread rapidly, enabling providers in developing countries to provide quality dental care at significant cost savings when compared with their peers in the developed world. Americans are traveling to India, Argentina, Brazil, Costa Rica, India, Malaysia, Mexico, Poland, South Africa, Thailand, Turkey, and South Korea for various dental services. The main reason for the dental vacation could be price variations in dental treatments, thus travelling from high-income countries to low-cost developing economies.
