Dental treatment is very expensive in most of the European and American countries. As important, Dental treatment is generally not reimbursed by the National Health Schemes of some countries and is way too expensive for most to get a comprehensive treatment plan. A dentist can charge $300 to $400 for a Dental Filling in USA & Europe whereas it costs only $30 to $40 in India. A Root Canal is $3,000 in the West but only $150 to $200 in India. Dentures can cost $1000 overseas but only $300 in India.
With Fortis having the trust of the global audience, consequent to it getting both the prestigious JCI and NABH accreditations, the Fortis Dental Clinics are expected to leverage this international market in a big way.
Besides the multi specialty Dental Clinic, other specialties available at Fortis City Centre include Gastroenterology, Cardiology, Medicine, Surgery, Allergy, Pediatrics, Gynecology, Infertility, Ophthalmology, Orthopedics and Endocrinology.
