London, United Kingdom, October 17, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- In response to the high cost of dental treatment and limited dental care provision available on the NHS, increasing numbers of patients are travelling to Poland for dental treatment.
Patients from the United Kingdom who travel to private dental clinics in Poland can make savings of up to 70% on popular treatments including, crowns, implants and veneers (source: StatMedica research).
The cost savings that can be made in Poland are however no reflection of the quality of the treatment available there. Poland is home to many experienced dental surgeons, who have to follow a strict programme of continuous professional development, and many have spent time working in dental clinics in the United Kingdom, where they have gained an understanding of British dental practises.
Speaking from Warsaw, Lukasz Liese, Managing Partner of StatMedica, which assists patients travelling to Poland for dental treatment said, “even though they have carried out extensive research on their procedure and have been methodical in selecting their clinic, our patients are usually genuinely surprised when they visit dental clinics in Poland for the first time. The clinics that we work with are all modern modern and welcoming, and most importantly they are equipped with the latest technologies, high quality materials, and infection control is treated as a priority.”
Head of StatMedica's London operations, Alison Hope added, “while the exact figure will depend on factors such as the individual clinic and the specific procedure, considerable savings are certainly realistic - even after the cost of flights and accommodation have been taken into consideration”.
As airlines, notably the low-cost carriers, have increased routes between cities in the United Kingdom and destinations in Poland in the past 24 months, there has never been a cheaper or more convenient time to travel to Poland.
StatMedica works with selected private clinics throughout Poland, advising them on attracting and welcoming patients from the United Kingdom and the rest of Western Europe.
It can also assist patients in selecting the most suitable clinic for their treatment, and can provide local support in Poland: from translation and interpreter services to 24-hour care by a qualified healthcare professional.
