Arrival in Budapest
After exiting baggage claim proceed to Terminal
hall 2B. The Kreativ Dental desk is readily
visible. We offer free airport transfers to all our
Airport patient coordinators Edit Nagy or Agota Tompek greet all Kreativ Dental patients at the desk with your arrival details & appointment packet. There is ample seating and Wi-Fi. The Kreativ Dental shuttle drivers will take you to your lodging.
Upon arrival at the Clinic, you should report to reception on the 1st floor. Once your details have been registered, your dental assistant will take your OPG (orthopantograph) x-ray and show you to your dentist's surgery for your consultation. Your dentist will conduct an oral examination, evaluate your x-ray and discuss with you your wishes and requirements. You may also require further consultation with our Oral Surgeon, Endodontist, or Periodontist. If necessary, we are able to take a Cone Beam CT image, which can facilitate diagnoses in the case of possible implantation and root canal treatment.
Based on your consultation(s), your dentist(s) will formulate your treatment plan(s). You will be given all relevant information by one of our patient care team who can further explain the treatment(s) to you and help you with any questions. Once you are happy with the treatment prescribed and have agreed upon the plan, you will be given your appointment times. On signing the treatment plan, the patient should pay 50% of the total amount for the stage of your treatment process. The remaining 50% is payable on completing that stage of treatment.
Your dental treatment will proceed according to your treatment plan. If any changes are necessary, you will be informed of the reason for this change and will have the opportunity to discuss the consequences. Your plan will then be amended and you should sign a copy to formally agree to the changes. The number of appointment times required depends on the nature and progress of your treatment. Should you feel the need to discuss or review your treatment at any stage, the Kreativ team are always ready to help you.
Finishing Treatment and Payment
Once you have completed the treatment stage, your dental bill is calculated and you should settle your bill for that stage. Payments can be made by credit/debit card (MasterCard, Visa, American Express), cash, or both. If you have received a permanent restoration such as crown and bridgework, dentures, or combination work, then you will also receive a guarantee paper and information on maintaining your new dental work. Any additional aftercare information pertaining to other work carried out will also be given to you.
Once you have returned home your Kreativ Dental representative in your home country should be your first point of contact if you require any further assistance or information. We look forward to seeing all of our patients for a yearly check up once they have completed their treatment.
Organizing you dental appointment couldn't be easier with the help of your local agent.
1. The first step is to decide when you would like to travel to Budapest and contact your local agent. We will discuss and arrange available appointment dates, which meet your dental travel objectives. Hungary has different public holidays from other European countries and North America, so you don't want to arrive on a day when the clinic is closed! The clinic can see patients at short notice for consultations and implant placement but often you may need to book a little ahead for crowns or bridgework.
2. The next thing you need to do is book your flight after your dates have been cleared by your dental agent. Your flight itinerary is required for final confirmation of your clinic appointment booking.
3. That's it. The clinic will look after all the other arrangements. They will:
a. Book your accommodation in a Kreativ Dental Clinic partner hotel. You have a choice of two hotels and some specially selected apartments. Visit our accommodation page to see full details of the accommodation we offer.
b. Meet you at the airport and bring you to your hotel. If you have booked your own accommodation the driver will drop you off there.
c. Bring you back to the airport for your return flight if you are staying at one of our partner hotels.
Kreativ Dental has negotiated discount rates for our patients with some specially selected local hotels and apartments. You have a choice of two hotels. The Amadeus hotel is a 2 minute walk to the clinic and is normally completely full of dental patients from around the world. The Hotel Arena is a short distance from the clinic and has a shuttle The Danubius Hotel showcases exclusive exercise and spa facilities to make your trip more enjoyable.
Your agent will book both your dental appointment and your lodging. We will then follow up with comprehensive confirmation details.
You can see more details of the accommodation we offer on our accommodation page.
In all cases, a consultation is necessary before treatment can be undertaken. It may be possible to fly into and out of Budapest on the same day for your Initial Consultation if you are visiting Europe from North America.
The Consultation at our Clinic is free of charge and would inform you of your treatment options, the cost and time scale, including healing time (if necessary) and the number of visits that may be required.
Some patients prefer to come for the Consultation and proceed with treatment on the same visit, usually a 4-5 day stay. Alternatively once the consultation has taken place you can return at a later date to begin your treatment.
The dentists and support staff at Kreativ Dental all speak English, our customer care manager Tom Emmerson is an English native speaker, and we have a team of interpreters for the following languages: Norwegian, Danish, French, German, Finnish, Swedish, Spanish, Italian, Icelandic and Russian.
On average, patients can expect savings of up to 40-70% on the cost of their dental treatment compared to current prices in the UK, Ireland and USA. We provide our patients with the highest quality dental services at reasonable Hungarian prices.
On signing the treatment plan, before commencing each stage of treatment, we ask the patient to pay 50% of the total price for that stage. The balance is then due at the end of each stage of treatment at the Clinic.
If a stage of your dental treatment is divided into two periods (e.g. 7 working days in Budapest, 1-2 weeks at home, 5 working days in Budapest), we ask for a deposit of 50% payable at the end of that first period of treatment (e.g. on the fifth or sixth working day). The balance is then paid at the end of the second period. Cash payments attract a discount of 2%.
You may pay cash in Sterling, Euros, US Dollars, or Hungarian Forint. We accept payments with most major credit cards (except Diners Club), and any amount paid by credit card is converted into Hungarian Forint at the current rate of exchange determined by the Hungarian National Bank (MNB).
Hungarian dentists are renowned worldwide for their high qualification, expertise and practical experience. Their credentials are of Western European standard and all our dentists are registered with the Hungarian Chamber of Dentists.
In the unlikely event of a failure of the laboratory work, Kreativ Dental agrees to meet the cost of airline travel to and from Hungary (a value up to $250.00 US/CAN and partner hotel accommodation expenses (meals are not included) of the patient for an additional trip to Budapest to carry out any guarantee work. The guarantee coverage is determined at the return visit to the clinic after direct examination and determination of laboratory failure.
Simply because the overheads for a dentist in Hungary are comparatively lower than in many European countries.
To help you make the most of your time in Hungary a full programme of excursions are available to book directly from your hotel.Link to tourism pages
No. An effective local anesthetic is used during the surgery so that you do not have any discomfort during the placement of the implants. The mild discomfort you might experience after surgery can be controlled with medication. Link to Implant Treatment
No. If you are missing several teeth they do not each have to be replaced with a separate implant. Although implants are artificial roots, one implant can be used to replace one or more teeth by way of attaching bridgework to the implant. Each patient's needs vary and the number of implants needed for any particular patient will be determined by a number of clinical factors.
Yes. To restore one jaw (upper or lower) normally requires 6 implants followed by 12 units of bridgework at a later stage. If you are unable to receive 6 implants or it you want a cheaper alternative, you may be able to get an implant retained denture based on 4 implants. While the treatment is in progress the patient can normally wear their denture. Link to Implant Treatment
