Prague Dentists

Get Your Dental Care from Prague Dentists


The Czech Republic is a relative newcomer to dental tourism but Prague dentists are known for their excellent work – even if their prices are significantly higher than in the rest of the country. Still, the country’s capital does have the largest concentration of dentists in the country so if you’re looking for choice, it’s the place to visit.

While dentists in Prague may be more expensive than their counterparts outside the city, they do make appointments quickly so if you’re in need of relatively urgent care, Prague is an excellent bet.

There are a number of advantages to using a Prague dentist (or one from elsewhere in the Czech Republic):

Czech Republic: right in the middle of Europe

  • Prague is easy to reach, as is the rest of the country. It lies smack in the center of Europe, and has direct flights from most of the continent’s capitals, including low-cost flights. For example, you can easily find a flight from Geneva or London for under $200, and there are last-minute specials that bring down the price even more.
  • If you live in Europe, you can catch excellent sleeper trains, or even take comfortable day buses. Either way, you’ll be a hop and a skip from Vienna, for example, and right next door to Germany.
  • Many dentists speak English, so communicating should not be an issue (but do check, because a dental chair is the last place you need a misunderstanding!)
  • Prague is one of the most attractive cities in Europe – it is absolutely gorgeous so it’s a wonderful place to spend some time exploring if your dental work takes more than a day or two.

Czech dentists: as qualified as anyone

To become a dentist in the Czech Republic, students need 24 months of postgraduate training after dental school. They must then pass a rigorous exam and achieve good grades if they want to be called a dentist. To practice, they have to join the Czech Dental Chamber. Dentists Prague and in the Czech Republic generally have an excellent reputation across Europe so the lengthy training is obviously worth it.

In fact, the high level of dental education attracts many students from abroad, and a full dentistry degree can be followed in English (or in Czech, of course) at the Charles University School of Medicine in the city of Hradec Kralove.

Czech dentists are less prone to hand out pills or give injections than in the US or UK so if you’re counting on a healthy dose of painkillers, come prepared to argue. You’ll get them in the end but they’re not given out as a matter of course.

It’s worth noting that Prague dentists charge significantly more than dentists in other parts of the country, so here a few examples of costsoutside the capital city. In Prague, it is estimated that costs are about 15% lower than in the UK so while you can save money by coming here, you might not save enough to make a trip worth the while unless it’s a major procedure.

There are plenty of dental options outside Prague, in Kromeriz or Zlin for example.

Plenty, that’s what! Prague is one of those cities where there’s always something happening – and then, there’s the rest of the country, making it an ideal dental holiday destination. You could…

  •  Take a cruise down the Vltava River, and admire the city’s beauty – or walk across the historic 14th century Charles Bridge, filled with artisans’ stalls.

  • What about the city’s exciting nightlife and its many bars, clubs and cafés?

  • Follow in the footsteps of Rockefellers and Rothchilds or Peter the Great and sample the miraculous properties of Carlsbad Springs, or Karlovy Vary.
  • Visit one of UNESCO’s 12 World Heritage sites, none of which is more than three hours’ drive from Prague.
  • Go golfing or fishing, or if you’re really sporty, hike or cycle along the country’s dedicated trails.

There is so much to see and do in Prague and in the rest of the Czech Republic you’ll almost forget why you’re here!

Why not try winter?

You’ll have plenty of excellent dental options in Central Europe and the Balkansk – this is dental paradise for those who need excellent care at reasonable prices.

You could visit a Serbia dentist or a Romanian dentistdentists in Bulgaria or dentists in Budapest. Every one of these options will get you dental care as good (if not better) as you’d get at home, at lower cost – in some cases, 75% lower!
