- New Silkroutes Group & EGroup to open dental clinics
An official online portal on dental tourism in Vietnam has been launched by the Vietnam Tourism Dentistry JSC at https://dentaltourism.vn, in a bid to make Vietnam become a dental tourism destination in the future.
The website offers useful and updated information on addresses of dental clinics and their services, such as dental implants, porcelain veneers, teeth whitening and deep cleaning, etc. The clinics are all equipped with advanced technology and devices such as 3D scanning machines or digital technology.
Customers using services on the website will have an online profile that is kept confidential and which they can access and check from anywhere. They can also receive maintenance and care services in countries with dental cooperation with the website, particularly the US and Australia.
The website also connects with tourism companies to introduce tour packages combined with dental care in Vietnam as a new tourism product with attractive prices and high quality.
Dental tourism is part of medical tourism and involves individuals seeking dental care while travelling. With international qualifications in dentistry, Vietnam offers a very competitive price for dental care, at 30 per cent cheaper than other countries in the region and even 50-60 per cent cheaper than in New Zealand and Australia, bringing major potential for the development of dental tourism. The website is expected to enhance links between dental clinics and travel agencies around the country, thereby attracting more foreign tourists.
Nearly 100,000 foreign tourists visit Vietnam each year for dental treatment, with revenue at about $150 million. Those from Australia, the US and New Zealand top the list. It is predicted that the number will increase 250 per cent in the next five years, to 250,000 each year.
