US News suggests medical tourism to cut dental care costs

Individuals seeking lower dental prices should consider medical tourism, according to a U.S. News & World Report article.

Dental implants in the U.S. cost an average of $2,500, according to Medical Tourism Association information cited by U.S. News. The same procedure costs $800 in Costa Rica, a popular travel spot for dental work.

U.S. News recommends medical tourism for those with an "adventurous spirit" and funds to travel. Before leaving, travelers should research which countries and providers are right for the type of dental work wanted, the article cautions.
