Louise Webb was in her late 30s when a hereditary disease led to her losing 10 teeth and becoming so depressed that she left her job and avoided leaving the house. Despite a referral to the Birmingham Dental Hospital, the only option was dentures. Louise was at her wits end. “I was in so much pain and my face had become sunken in at the sides because I didn’t have my back teeth. I didn’t want to go out, I didn’t want anyone to see me and at the same time I just couldn’t face having false teeth,” explained Louise.
In desperation, Louise considered the option of having dental implants done privately, but the cost was staggering. “It just wasn’t an option.” Louise said. “But whilst doing my research, I discovered that many people had gone to Hungary and that Hungarian dentists are very well trained and more experienced in dental implants that their UK counterparts.” Hungary is widely considered to be a European centre of excellence for dentistry and has historically attracted many overseas visitors who come for treatment and stay to enjoy the city.
Louise was immediately impressed with Smile Savers’ level of customer service. After looking at Louise’s X-rays, she was recommended a clear dental treatment plan, to be spread over three visits to Budapest. “Smile Savers helped to organise my hotels, they collected me from the airport and there was always a car waiting to take me to and from the clinic. The dentists and the staff at the clinic were amazing, it was all so professional but also very friendly. I felt reassured at every level and even though the treatment was lengthy and involved several trips I enjoyed visiting the city and Smile Savers made each trip easy and stress free,” Louise continued.
.Over the next few months, Louise made a total of three trips to Budapest and had 13 dental implants and nine dental crowns. She saved over £45,000.00 on treatment costs and her life has changed dramatically, all because she can now smile with confidence again.
