Who is a „dental tourist”?
Decision criteria, service requirements and the satisfaction of the customers
The health tourism has developed into a lucrative industry in Hungary since the introduction of the EU-wide fix contribution 10 years ago and the patient mobility directive. Dental tourism played thereby a significant role.
Especially patients from the German speaking area travel for dental care to Hungary. The goal of research was to take a closer look at the market of the dental tourism sector, the patients as well as their forms of treatment and motivations and to reveal possible trends. For this purpose the data collected in 2010 was compared to a representative market survey from 2013.
TEMOS is a neutral and independent certification company with headquarters in Germany and branches in many countries around the globe.
