Medical tourism in Romania:
Why a dental prosthesis , a dental implant or a specialist visit offered by the dentists in Romania are much cheaper when compared to the prices normally charged by dentists in the Western Europe, United States or Canada? ? Saving 60% or more with dental tourism is possible thanks to a long series of factors:
- The labor costs are lower: The average salary of the medical and paramedical staff (dentists, dental technicians, their assistants) in the East is much lower than in Europe or U.S . In Romania, monthly salaries range from a minimum of 400 euro to a maximum of 800 Euros.
– Lower taxes and the labor costs are more competitive: a low wage corresponds in fact also to a preferential taxation. The dentists in Romania are taxed with a small percentage when compared to the cost of labor in other countries. Same goes and for what concerns ordinary bills: electricity, water, gas, garbage, and all the other taxes imposed on citizens and businesses are much lower than in Western Europe.
– Lower cost of living: it is obviously that to the lower taxes and labor costs, also correspond a cost of living more affordable.
All these make medical tourism in Romania to be financially advantageous for medical tourists from certain countries.
