Dental Emergencies Tips For Traveling Abroad
“Are you planning a vacation outside the U.S.? Don’t have your vacation ruined by a toothache. Prior to traveling abroad a thorough dental examination is important especially if traveling to developing countries or remote areas without access to safe dental care.
Emergency care abroad may be hard to find, uncomfortable, expensive, or even dangerous. Most of us take for granted the high U.S. standards for infection control and safety. We seldom think about the fact that sterile instruments, gloves, disposable needles and safe water are not always routine in parts of the world. Dentists practicing in the U.S. are held to high standards of care and must follow infection control guidelines for disease prevention. The standards for educating and licensing these professionals also vary in foreign countries. In the U.S., dentists have been educated in accredited schools and have taken national and state boards prior to receiving a license to practice.”

Don’t let a tooth emergency dampen your vacation. Be sure to have your teeth in great shape prior to leaving home.
