Why Dental Tourism, and Why Puducherry, India?

Dental tourism is becoming increasingly popular in several parts of the world, and India has long been the ideal destination for both medical tourism and dental tourism. In particular, one destination is rapidly becoming the first port of call for dental tourism in India: the former French colony of Pondicherry, now known as Puducherry.

Dental tourism might sound like it is some new term, but it is self-explanatory. If you go to a country to receive your dental treatment and are also looking for a vacation destination, you can club both of these together and enjoy your treatment tenure by taking a dental tourism vacation.

More than 800,000 Americans travel overseas every year just for dental treatment. Although nearby locations such as Mexico and Costa Rica are budget-friendly, India represents the largest talent pool when it comes to dentists for cosmetic dentistry, pedodontics (pediatric dentistry), orthodontics, and several other specialty areas. It is also far more affordable, not to mention being a much more exotic destination for travelers from all over the world.

Pondicherry has under its belt some of the most dedicated and affordable dentists, and also every necessary piece of equipment for any dental procedure, however complex. Also, the town touts many aesthetic tourist spots offering a plethora of activities for its visitors. It is also a spiritual destination for many, being home to the world-famous Aurobindo Ashram.

Dentists in Pondicherry are also extremely efficient with their scheduling, allowing you to show up any time of the day where you feel comfortable. The infrastructure in clinics like Dr. Latha’s DentalKraft is world-class, and you’ll be welcomed with all the warmth you’d expect in a globally renowned tourist destination. However, if you’re running on a tight schedule, you can book an appointment online.

Why is Puducherry the Preferred Dental Tourism Destination in Asia?


People from several countries flock to India for medical and dental treatment, the chief reason being affordable treatment from expert dentistry specialists with high-quality equipment and best-in-class infrastructure. Top that off with tourist destinations that are surprisingly budget-friendly and you have the magic mix for the perfect dental tourism destination.

When compared to someone seeking dental treatment in their own country, dental treatment in India, in general, is exponentially cheaper in India.

You can enjoy massive savings, simply by taking a dental treatment-related trip to India. You can spend that extra money on a leisure trip around Pondicherry and South India.

Here’s some food for thought…

While a single dental implant can cost between $3000 and $5000 in the United States, you can get the exact same type of implant done in India for an average of $418 – cheaper than anywhere else in the world and with the same level of expertise as New York or London.

On top of that, the resort and hotel accommodation costs in and around Pondicherry are an absolute steal, so if you just save up the amount it takes for a procedure in your country, you can shoot two birds with a proverbial stone!

Treatment quality

“I am paying just a fraction of the usual cost for my treatment… Will I be getting treatment of the same quality?”

We hear you. And we also assure you, all you have to do is come here and forget your worries because we have your back.

Affordable dentists are not bad quality dentists. That’s just how things work in India. You are ensured to get premium quality treatment in India, even if you pick a random dentist in Kalapet, for every one of them is highly qualified and efficient. In fact, India, through the Bureau of Indian Standards or BIS, is a member of the ISO/TC 106 Dentistry Committee that sets global standards for the dental profession and the dental treatment industry at large.

It is no laughing matter that India satisfies international standards when it comes to dental education. In addition to that, we have also made it a point to harness top-notch equipment to ensure a smooth dental procedure, be it as simple as a denture to something as complicated as an implant procedure.

Cut down the wait

Yes. Wait no more. Dentists in Pondicherry are open to taking up appointments 6 days a week, with some offering Sunday appointments for special cases. So you don’t have to worry about the long waiting time between the time you land and the time your appointment is due.

Call in and schedule your appointment or book an appointment on our site, and you will be accommodated whenever you are comfortable. You can book well in advance or keep it flexible. The choice is yours.

Feel right at home

Ask any dentist near Auroville, you’re sure to find out a lot about what the place has to offer in terms of aesthetic and spiritual attractions. Auroville is an ideal place to start your dental tourism as it flaunts an amalgam of several international cultures, ensuring that anyone who enters feels right at home.

International cultures mean multi-lingual support as well. The language barrier will be a non-issue as the city boasts interpreters in all major global languages including French, German, Italian, Spanish, etc.

Getting your dental procedure is one thing, but when was the last time you enjoyed intricate French architecture, enthralling beaches, several spiritual hubs, boathouses, scuba spots, and several more, all in one spot? Very few places, we’ll bet on it.


Very few cities in the whole wide world can assure you this much range in terms of both dental treatment as well as a vacation destination, so if you are looking for a spot for your dental tourism trip, well, look no more! For you have found an ideal spot! Be it materialistic pleasures, spiritualistic endeavors, or just some downtime in a coastal paradise, we have got a little bit of everything over here!
