Turkey is missing out on a lucrative dental care tourism business with billions of dollars of profit-making potential due to poor promotion, the result of a few necessary legal amendments that have been shelved for years, market representatives argue with Sunday’s Zaman. With its increased popularity for quality health services at relatively lower prices Turkey has attracted a growing number of visitors from abroad, particularly Europe, in the past decade. The country’s first ever full-face transplant that accompanied multiple organ transplants (only recently) didn’t just spark enthusiasm at home but also helped fuel the tide of health tourists to Turkish clinics from surrounding countries. Some argue, however, that the country cannot use its potential to attract foreign dental patients at a desired level. Thousands of foreign tourists visit Turkey to receive dental care, spending millions of dollars at Turkish dentists each year. According to market observer Emin Çakmak, opportunities in dental care tourism can actually be far beyond what Turks anticipate.
