"Dental Tourism" this phrase has a huge potential in India, the reason being, that a person while undergoing dental treatment of international standards, can get to enjoy the exotic locates that India has to offer almost free. As the oral health problems and treatment are very costly in most of the European and American countries as compared to this part of the world, the people have started to club their tours with dental treatment here. Different state tourism boards are promoting dental tourism in their own attractive ways to increase the economy of state. If we throw light on its another aspect, we see that as in India 70% of the population resides in rural areas, people over there are not getting even the primary level of oral health care, as the dentists are migrating towards urban locations and metro cities to catch richer and foreign patients.
