The Vietnam Tourism Dentistry JSC has launched the country’s official portal on dental tourism, https://dentaltourism.vn, in a bid to build Vietnam into the world’s dental care tourism destination in the future.
The new website will provide users with various services, including dental implants, porcelain veneer, teeth whitening and deep cleaning, among others.
It also links with tourism companies to introduce services and packages that are suitable with travel tours in Vietnam with budget-friendly prices and high quality. Customers using services on the website may receive maintenance and care services in countries having dental cooperation with Vietnam, particularly the US and Australia.
At the launching ceremony, Director of Ho Chi Minh City Odonto–Stomatology Hospital Nguyen Duc Minh said the website will enhance connection between dental clinics and travel agencies across the country, which helps to attract more foreign tourists to Vietnam.
Dental tourism is part of medical tourism, which involves individuals seeking dental care while travelling. Nearly 100,000 foreign tourists travel to Vietnam each year for dental treatment, providing revenue of about US$150 million. Those from Australia, the US and New Zealand topped the list.
