Economic crisis drives Greeks to Bulgarian dentists

 

Residents of the northern Greek city of Xanthi are increasingly crossing the border into Bulgaria in search of cheap dental services.

The average price for dental fillings in Bulgaria ranges between 15 and 20 Euros. Most Greeks are patients without covered health insurance.

Greek dental tourism is so popular that clinics in Petrich have already started writing their working hours in both Bulgarian and Greek. It is mainly working class Greeks who go there; some of them also speak Bulgarian.

Bulgaria is a preferred destination due to the low-cost, high-quality dental care for British citizens as well.
