As costs continue to rise for dental care in the developed world, more people are either foregoing essential dental treatment or looking at more affordable alternatives, like dental tourism for getting the treatment they need. Dental tourism is a subset of the sector known as medical tourism. It involves individuals seeking dental care outside of their local healthcare systems and may be accompanied by a vacation.
Dental tourism is growing worldwide as the world becomes ever more interdependent and competitive. Technique, material and technological advances spread rapidly, enabling providers in “developing countries” to provide dental care at significant cost savings when compared with their peers in the developed world.
One of the leading dental providers in Malaysia, Beverly Wilshire Dental Centre (BWDC) has been offering their services to the international clientele since it was established in 2014. The centre is licensed by Ministry of Health Malaysia and also a member of the Malaysia Healthcare Travel Council (MHTC), making it fully committed to providing excellent services in Dentistry.
Due to their great effort in the dental tourism segment, Beverly Wilshire Dental Centre awarded the Dental Service Provider of The Year at the Global Health & Travel Awards 2017, in conjunction with the Asia Pacific Healthcare & Medical Tourism Conference 2017. This will be the second international award received this year by the centre, after attaining the Global Patient Choice Award 2017 – Dental (USA).
In 2016, approximately twenty three percent (23%) of BWDC’s clientele was comprised of international patients mainly from Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Indonesia, America, United Kingdom, Middle East and growing numbers from other countries too. BWDC’s most popular treatments sought by international clients are veneer, crowning, teeth whitening, implant and filling.
“We hope to continue to build on and expand our services and offerings beyond Malaysia, and become the leading centre of excellence in aesthetic dentistry in the Asia Pacific region”, said Dato’ Francis Ng, Chairman, Beverly Wilshire Dental Centre.
BWDC’s team of Orthodontist, Prosthodontist, Implantologist and Oral Maxillofacial Surgeon all possess years of experience and work closely together to customize a tailored dental treatment plan for our clients. BWDC is at the forefront of dentistry; utilizing the latest techniques, equipped with state-of-the-art technologies such as 3D-Imaging Technology.
BWDC aims to create more awareness in the international market segment by participating at Asia Pacific Healthcare & Medical Tourism Conference 2017, organized in The Ritz Carlton Bali today. “We will be aggressively looking at promoting our services in the international market and encourage stakeholders to explore collaboration opportunities with BWDC” said Rubhen Nair Pradunman, Head of International Marketing, Beverly Wilshire Dental Centre.
