TOPICALITIES

We had a little argument with one of our patients recently, although it is not very common that we get into conflicts in the dental surgery. Steve arrived with a very swollen face caused by a heavily decayed and infected molar tooth. His main desire was to stop the pain as soon as possible so he thought the best would be to get the tooth taken out immediately. He said that back tooth is not very important for him and this was the main point of disagreement between him and the dentist.

The Health Services Management Training Centre of Semmelweis University completed a comprehensive study on dental care and patient flow in 2013. The main questions raised were: „Why is Hungary the main destination country in dental tourism?" and „Why do patients choose Hungary for dental care?"
