We understand that dental treatment is not always financially feasible for all patients. It can be tempting to go to a foreign country and take a vacation and get dental treatment while away for cheaper than what the dental treatment alone would cost in Canada or the United States. Unfortunately, you seem to get what you pay for in many cases. Dental education and treatment standards are not consistent among countries, and we have even spoken to patients who have had treatment completed by dentists in foreign countries who claim to have been trained in the United States, but have provided treatment that was far from acceptable by Canadian standards.
