Dental Treatment Abroad Versus Treatment at 3Dental (At Our Dublin, Limerick or Galway Clinics)

Dental Treatment Abroad Versus Ireland - 3Dental
The Reality Of Dental Treatment Abroad v 3Dental

Any dental treatment you receive, whether in Ireland or abroad, does need maintenance.

You can’t just walk away from it. The downsides of travelling abroad for dental treatment is there is very little follow up involved in your care. Dr. Peter Doherty

So whenever we complete a very large dental treatment for someone, we would like them to come back to our Dublin, Limerick or Galway clinic on a regular basis.

Also, what we find is that people who have dental implants done in eastern Europe often have very obscure brands of dental implants placed.

It’s therefore very hard for us to find the components that are required for those implants, and in most cases we can’t.

All On 4 Treatment Abroad Versus Ireland

In recent times, there has been a growing trend in patients going abroad for the all-on-4 treatment (also known as smile in a day).

To get our view on this, check out our post on 'All On 4 Abroad - Is It Worth It?' Also, watch the video on the right / below this panel to hear what our very own Dr. Peter Doherty has to say on this topic.

Veneers Treatment Abroad Versus Ireland

dental veneers abroad - 3dental

We also often speak with patients who have received veneer treatments abroad - particularly Turkey. 

Experience has taught us that a cosmetic dentistry holiday abroad can very quickly add up to something that you never wanted. 


  • Not getting a consult before treatment from the treating dentist
  • A lack of aftercare
  • Potential language barriers
  • Rushed treatments in some cases (Veneer treatments typically take place over several appointments over several weeks)

We advise against going abroad for veneers.

We've written about this topic further in our post: Veneers In Turkey – What To Expect Before You Go!

We would suggest booking in a time to see take advantage of a free consultation.

This allows you to get your questions answered and make an educated decision on what might be best for you.

Implant Treatment Abroad Versus Ireland

We have much the same commentry for those patients who are enquiring about dental implant treatment abroad.

A lack of aftercare, having obscure dental implants brands used, a lack of an in-person consultation are all red flags for us.

Some Patients Who Considered Getting Dental Work Abroad

I was looking at abroad, and then I considered the aftercare. And then I thought, I'd have to travel abroad (again) if I have any problems! Everything is my doorstep here (at 3Dental). I wouldn't look back. George Holden
I was going to go to Turkey, but then I'd thought I'd find out prices in Limerick instead. I came into meet Fearghal and he was lovely! Everyone says they (my teeth) look so natural! Margaret Kett
I knew it was going to be a long process. If I had to jump on a plane and go to Poland every time I had an issue - it wouldn't have been practical. I'm glad I did what I did. Patrick Naughton
Loads of people told me to go abroad - but I wanted to get it here in Ireland so that I'd have the aftercare. I'm much happier! The comfort of having the guys here is just brilliant! Trisha Lawton
