Dental patients will travel the world to receive dental treatment, but The Wealthy Dentist was curious about how far dental patients are willing to travel throughout the U.S. to visit a dentist.
As it turns out, it might be a lot farther than you realize.
One implantologist told The Wealthy Dentist, “Many of our patients travel up to 4 hours by car for treatments.”
The Wealthy Dentist conducted a survey asking dentists how far some of their dental patients travel for dental treatment.
Many dentists reported that they see dental patients who live hundreds, or even thousands of miles away from their dental practice.
“Some patients will travel 30+ miles,” wrote a rural dentist, “and then there is the fellow who comes twice a year from the Netherlands!”
