Reviews for Dental Implants in Spain and Other Dental Work


If you're considering getting major dental work such as dental implants in Spain, reviews will play an important part of your research. Reviews from former patients help you decide which dentist and clinic is right for you. They also warn you of things you should be cautious of.

But with all the review sites and forums out there, it can be hard to know where to start. That's why we've created this article featuring reviews from Spain dental patients – so you can get an idea of what to expect if you get dental work in Spain.

You'll find information about patients' experiences with procedures including:

  • Dental implants
  • Crowns
  • Extractions
  • Teeth cleaning
  • Fillings
  • X-rays

Spain dentist review: “He was one of the best dentists I have visited”

Despite speaking quite good Spanish, this reviewer was keen to find a dentist with whom he could communicate in English. He did a lot of online research checking forums and websites, but he still had to visit a few dentists in Barcelona before finding one he was happy with.

Make sure you're happy with the levels of cleanliness in your clinic

The first was one of the “big clinics” which offer a free checkup but then “give you a quote that makes you wonder if you really need all these things”. In addition, he says, the hygiene standards were not as he had expected.

The second dentist he visited didn't seem to perform a thorough checkup to identify the source of his toothache, but quickly suggested a different treatment costing €300 ($350). Since he didn't feel comfortable there, he tried another.

The third dentist was a success: a German dentist who speaks fluent Spanish and English. The reviewer says he felt like the dentist was very professional and cared about him as a patient rather than just wanting his money.

To avoid getting drawn into paying for treatment you don't really need, it's a good idea to visit your local dentist before you travel – if you haven't already. They can provide you with a treatment plan that your dentist in Spain can refer to. However, be aware that some dentists may have different recommendations, and this doesn't necessarily mean they're trying to rip you off.

“I was so unbelievably happy with my smile”

Louisa is originally from Scotland but now lives in Madrid. In this video she describes her experience getting crowns and dental implants at the dentist there. It's an interesting watch for anyone considering this work as she goes into detail about the process.

After Bulimia completely destroyed my teeth, I underwent a full mouth reconstruction/rehabilitation which included 4 implants and 20 porcelain crowns. Since the crowns were placed I have had some problems with them breaking and having to be replaced, but overall I am very happy with the new appearance of my smile and the confidence it has given me. Here I share my story and talk about what the procedure involves, the pros and cons of cosmetic dentistry and the cost of getting this type of dental work done. If you are thinking about getting cosmetic dentistry and have any questions about my experience getting crowns and implants I'd be happy to answer them! ★VIDEOS TO GET TO KNOW ME BETTER: THE BIRTH OF OUR THIRD DAUGHTER: ( I DO MY HUSBAND'S MAKEUP!: ( Funny accent challenge with my husband: ( LIFE BEFORE AND AFTER HAVING KIDS (funny spoof): ( ★ MY SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS: Snapchat: louisadubickas Instagram –… Twitter – Google+ –… ★ Business Inquiries, Sponsors, Collaborations & more: email listed in "About" section ★ FILMING EQUIPMENT I USE: Canon G7X Walimex 75 Watt Ring Light: ( Imovies Macbook Air ♥ ♥ ♥ I'm Louisa!

She paid about €500 ($600) per crown and €2,000 ($2000) per implant, which is above average for dental work in Spain. She didn't like the look of the crowns at first but the dentist was able to adjust them to a size she was happy with. Unfortunately, four of her crowns later broke because of a bad bite.

It was easy for Louisa to return to the dentist for adjustments and replacements because she lives in Spain, but consider what you would do in her situation having traveled abroad for your treatment.

“Almost a year later, she has had no problems whatsoever”

spain dental holiday
Cheap dental implants mean more money for holidays

This writer describes how her mother sought dental work in Spain while she was on holiday there. She had been quoted $7,500 in the US for the extractions, fillings, cleaning, and two dental implants she needed. In Spain, she was able to get the work done for just $1,800.

They had no problems communicating with the dentist and receptionist, who both spoke excellent English. Her mother had the work completed over two visits about six months apart – this is the time required for the implants to settle in the jaw bone before permanent crowns are placed.

Writing a year on from the last visit, the writer says her mother is “delighted” with the work. Her father is also pleased because they have been able to afford two three-week long holidays to Spain with the money they saved.

Her advice for anyone planning a dental trip to Spain is to book an appointment with a dentist near your accommodation for the first day you're there. This allows time to plan and carry out the treatment during your holiday.

“A little worn down … but it was functional and clean”

Our final review comes from Jeremy and Kate. They were traveling and just needed regular checkups and cleanings, but made a special trip to Antigua because of its reputation for dental tourism. Their goal was to find an English-speaking dentist offering reliable services for a good price.

spain dentist reviews
Are you prepared to share?

They visited a clinic recommended by their hostel and were able to get appointments for the next day. It was certainly a no-frills experience, but they got great service and clean teeth for about $20 each.

Some of the comments worth noting from their blog are:

  • There was no air conditioning in the waiting room or office
  • The office consisted of two chairs right next to each other, not private rooms
  • All the equipment was clean and functional, if not a little worn down
  • The dentist herself did the cleanings (not the hygienist)

They were happy with the experience but they do note that for anything more significant than a cleaning they would probably do their own research and interview dentists first.

Not everyone has a positive experience with visiting a dentist in Spain – at least not at first.

Do plenty of research before you decide

Doing as much research as possible ahead of your trip will help you choose the right clinic for you. However, if anything is not as expected when you arrive, or you feel under pressure to get treatment you don't think you need, don't be afraid to walk away. There are plenty of other reputable dentists out there who would welcome your business.

It's a good idea to have a consultation with your home dentist before you travel; this way you can ask questions about the treatment you need and be better informed when you reach your dentist in Spain. Our website has lots of useful information about common dental treatments such as dental implants, crowns, veneers and cosmetic work.

If you decide that dental tourism in Spain isn't right for you, there are still other locations you might consider. Read more in our full dental tourism article and remember to get your free quote.
