Exceptional quality service. The authentic tools and appliances are based on advanced technology for optimal results and the top-skilled dentists are well-trained with international standards.

What is more, dental tourism in Vietnam is credible. The dentistry receives active support from the government, and there is also cooperation programs with the US and Australia to ensure maintenance and care service even when the patients have left Vietnam.

Types of dental work available

Dental tourism in Vietnam covers general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry.

  • Cleaning and Polishing (done within a day): cost around US$ 15.
  • Whitening (1 hour): around US$ 150.
  • Porcelain veneer (up to 2 days): A more budget-friendly alternative to crowning, at around US$ 250.
  • Implants (at least 2 days): from US$ 1,000 (the price depending on the amount of work done, on one or both jaws).
  • Orthodontics (1 day): from US$ 1,000 - US$ 5,000, depending on the braces’ materials.

Implants and orthodontics may take up to a week for the follow-up procedures.

5. Final checkup: Have the dentists double-check your teeth and give you a complete guideline on how to take care of the work.

Important reminders

Insurance is a must: It can provide protection in case anything goes wrong or there are complications that require a longer stay than planned.

Vaccinations: Though not compulsory in visa and dental procedure, but prevention is always better than cure. Learn about the vaccinations needed for traveling to Vietnam.

Plan the post-work care: Take into account the healing time for your teeth to make a more thorough itinerary.

Sign up with a companion: Have a friend alongside to provide care in case you take anesthesia or painkillers during the procedures, and of course, to join in the adventures afterward.
