„Why should I pay for something that is free with the NHS?” This is probably the most common question when it comes to private dentistry. We have 5 reasons why you should consider having treatment at a private clinic.
Time is money
You arrive at your local NHS dentistry, sit down, and you hear the nurse calling your name immediately. Sounds too perfect to be true, right? Most NHS dentists are extremely overwhelmed, there’s almost 300 vacant positions nationwide, which means in several areas a single person is doing the job 2-3 dentists. Consequently, waiting times can be exponentially longer than expected, even if the patient booked an appointment. This can be quite frustrating, because it is not recommended to eat or drink anything before a dental appointment. Also, nobody likes to spend their precious free-time in a waiting room. If you decide to go private, you can forget about waiting for hours.
We have to accept, that Covid-19 will probably stay with us a bit longer than expected. This means we all have to be extra cautious, not to get sick. Hospitals and clinics are well-known hotspots for every infection, therefore one should try and spend as little time in crowded waiting areas as possible. Meeting a Covid patient in a hospital is more likely than meeting one in the waiting area of a private dentistry. Most private clinics limit the amount of people allowed in the waiting room at any given time.
This keeps the unnecessary human contacts at a minimum.
Quality is cool
Healthcare treatments are improving fast. Dental treatments are improving even faster. Keeping up with all the technological advancements, and implementing them into the everyday routine is not a problem for a private dentistry. Investing in new equipment, constantly training and developing the staff, and acquiring quality materials are all part of the daily routine. We at VitalEurope are proud to be pioneers of utilizing new and modern techniques. For example the wonders of fully digital dentistry.
A good place to be
Most people are scared of dentists, and will only book an appointment if they are in pain. This is far from ideal, as one should visit a specialist as soon as they experience anything odd. Attending yearly checkups and scale and polish appointments are also recommended. A good private dentistry will make you feel like home. The staff members and the environment are friendly and calming, the dentists are professionals, and everyone is focusing on the patients’ well-being. The entire clinic serves a single purpose, to make sure the patient is happy and satisfied.
One of the most important feature of a good private clinic is the length of the guarantee they provide for their treatments. Long-term guarantee on dental work is only possible if we use high grade materials, and the dentists are experienced professionals. We at VitalEurope offer lifetime guarantee for dental implants, and our implant success rate is 99.6%, which is more than the global average. This is our promise and guarantee that you will be smiling when you finish dental treatment at our clinic.
Time, safety, comfort, guarantee – these are the factors many people tend to forget about when they are calculating the prices for dental treatments. Once accounted for, private dental clinics will always be the favorable option compared to anything else.
