Initial online consultation
To begin your journey with us, we require some photos or X-rays of your teeth for the dental team to assess. These are used to give you a quotation. The easiest method for sending photos/X-rays to us is via WhatsApp, as this allows us to communicate with you efficiently.
After the dental team looks at your photos, we’ll get back to you with a treatment plan and price that fits your needs and wants. At this stage, you can also ask as many questions as you like or even arrange a phone call with one of our UK advisors to discuss everything in more detail
Making Your Booking
If you decide to go ahead based on the quotation provided, you will be required to find suitable flights to Antalya Airport (AYT) for the timeframe required to complete your treatment.
You will also be required to pay an online booking fee of £300, but don’t worry, this amount is deducted from the total treatment plan cost, leaving the remaining amount to be paid in the clinic when in Turkey.
Once flights are booked and your booking fee is paid, it’s simply a case of seeing you in Turkey! However, if you have any questions in the run-up to your trip, please contact us.
Arrival at the Airport
When you arrive in Turkey and have collected your bags, it’s time to exit the airport to find your driver. We include VIP airport transfers with all packages, meaning you can relax from the moment you arrive.
Your driver will be waiting for you near the “Welcome to Antalya” sign, which is unmissable when exiting the airport. Your driver will hold a sign displaying your name, so you can locate them easily and be on your way to the hotel. The drive to your hotel from the airport is around 30 minutes.
Please note that treatment plans will differ from person to person, so the example appointments below may be different for you, depending on exactly what your treatment is.
The below plan is set out to give you an idea of how clinic appointments generally work for most individuals.
You will be picked up from the hotel and brought to the clinic for all appointments by your rep and dropped back off at the hotel on completion. (3-minute drive)
Example Appointment Plan
This appointment is usually the longest, so we recommend having a good breakfast before this one! Appointment 1 includes your secondary consultation with the clinic’s senior dentist, paperwork, X-rays, style, shape and shade choice, tooth preparation, potential root canal and temporary teeth impressions and manufacture.
With all that in mind, the day of your first appointment can be quite busy, and you can usually expect to spend 6-8 hours in the clinic on average, although this may vary.
2-3 days of from the clinic (to enjoy the beautiful Konyaalti).
Appointments 2 and 3
Please note, some patients may only require 3 appointments and others 4, generally, the middle appointment(s) will revolve around you and your new teeth.
Appointments 2-3 may involve a trial fit and check of your new teeth, where the dentists will check your new teeth meticulously to make sure they are of exceptional quality and fit.
You will also have the opportunity to see your new teeth, in your mouth, to ensure they are suitable for you. You may decide that you would prefer some fine adjustments at this time, and this is never a problem. Any requests will be accommodated where doable.
Following checks, your new teeth are then sent back to the lab for potential fine adjustments and a final polish ready for your final fit.
Generally, these appointments are around 1-4 hours.
Your new smile day! This appointment revolves around the final fit and cementing of your new teeth, and the dentists will again do some checks to make sure all is well before cementing them into place.
