About

GCR Expert visit

The Helvetic Clinic was officially visited and re-accredited by the GCR team in March 2017. The clinic has showed an increased focus on increasing services "behind the scenes" in 2016, with major improvements in CMS tracking every stage of the patient journey from their initial enquiry, to the treatment itself, after-care and consistent follow-up. This has lead to increase patient outcomes and quality improvements.

The team continues to work hard in providing a truly "world-class" dental facility for both local, international and cross-border patients. 

Here is the original GCR accreditation overview text from September 2015, when Helvetic Clinics demonstrated the largest improvements in the levels of expertise, services, facilities and review score than any other clinic in the GCR index in a 12 month period:

__________

It's wonderful to:

1. be in a medical clinic but not feel like you're in a hotel

2. to be in a hotel and not to feel like you're in a medical clinic

Helvetic Dental Clinic have got it just right with their unique blend of a top hotel and dental clinic. The premises are excellently thought out and not to forget the ample on-site dental lab (the heart of any dental clinic) which has excellent communication and support for both patients and doctors.

It is a prime option within Hungary for medical travellers simply due to the hotel / clinic integration, the 4* feel and service + the new building meaning that the latest technological advances and hygiene protocols have been considered. Considering also all that Budapest has to offer plus the number of flights going in and out of BUdapest airport, it's hard to consider another rival within Europe.

Helvetic Dental Clinics Building in Budapest has been awarded the 2nd "Best Property Development in 2015 as well as "highly commended" as an International medical tourism hotel of the year in the IMTJ 2016 awards.

It's obvious that the clinic owners have given much thought into including many "best practices" - both medical and non-medical into their new premises, which has moved the Helvetic Clinic" in Budapest towards being a strong international player in the dental tourism market. Hence the GCR is proud to fully certify the Helvetic Clinic to the International Accredited Standards.

GCR Local Expert verdict: Highly recommended.

One of the best decisions of my life

Last summer I had a fall and damaged a number of teeth. Rather than undergo a lengthy course of repair treatment with my local dentist, who I had little confidence in anyway, I decided on a different course of action.

I was looking for was an intensive course of treatment, preferably residential, where all the work required could be done within a single week. Up until now the term dental tourism meant little to me, but it became all too apparent that far better value for money and quality standards could be obtained outside the UK. Further research convinced me that Hungary was my destination of choice, and that within that country one clinic, Helvetic, stood head and shoulders above the rest.

Apart from their status as being one of the premier dental clinics in Europe, I was attracted by the fact that their modern city centre premises in Budapest included a state of the art clinic, independent laboratory facilities and hotel accommodation.
Their website provided me with all the reassurances needed, and my initial telephone conversation with the clinic answered all my questions and put me at ease. Without delay I booked my free consultation and made travel plans.

To cut a long story short, my problems were far greater than I realised, other major problems were detected and seven of my remaining fourteen teeth needed to be extracted. Dentures were never an option for me, so I opted for implant surgery to completely rebuild my mouth. Knowing how much this would have cost me in the UK I was staggered to find that my quotation was about £25k lower.

Nine implants were required in order to give me a full set of adult teeth once again, with all my remaining existing teeth being crowned so as to match my new ones. Four visits to Budapest were required in total over the course of a year to complete the treatment. Helvetic don’t cut corners and absolutely insist on sufficient time for extractions to heal, and for implants to integrate into the jaw bone.

The staff at the Helvetic are fantastic, and I cannot praise them highly enough. Many of them speak English, but in any case I had an English speaking Patient Care Coordinator with me at all times to explain all the various procedures and answer any questions that I had. The quality of my treatment was second to none, as was the skill and professionalism of all the specialists who treated me over the course of the year. Surgery of this sort is not without some pain and discomfort, but the pain management is excellent and being able to lie down on your hotel bed within minutes of having seven teeth extracted in one go is an absolute blessing.

Now that I have my full set of gleaming new teeth, to all at Helvetic please accept my everlasting thanks and gratitude for giving me my smile and confidence back. Booking my treatment with you in Budapest, which is such a beautiful city also, has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. To anyone reading this who is faced with a similar decision then hesitate no further. You will be so well looked after and have absolutely no cause for regret.

(Pardon my english. I'm not a native speaker)

On vacation in Budapest I had a terrible toothache do to a temporary filling my dentist (back home) had made before I could get a root canal treatment. I went to Helvetic Dental, to ask if they could help with the pain.

All the staff is very nice and serviceminded. They even have nametags with flags indicating what languages they speak. The dentist was honest and told me, that the best he could do was to clean the tooth again, but that it might not make a difference. He also offered me more effective pain killers than the ones I had.

The x-rays and the consultation was free! I only paid for the pain killers (10 €)

I will recommend Helvetic Dental to all og my friends and family back home!

Excellent service and very good prices! I will definently return in the future if in need for bigger dental procedures!

Outstanding. Not just any dentist. Dr. Berkei Gabor is a true artist. He takes his time and you could tell it really pleased him when it turns out perfect. So glad I flew across the world instead of going to Mexico.

Major work done, Bridges, Veneers, overlays. Every tooth had something done. Would have been 4 times the cost in USA and I very seriously doubt it would have been as good of work done.

Great staff, state of the art dentistry and precise quotes.

My wife and I chose Helvetic in Budapest after considerable research. We were'n't disappointed. From the off Helvetic staff were friendly and understanding. After initial examinations we were given a firm quote for treatment. No hidden extras and payments broken down to coincide with treatments. I required five extractions, four implants, four crowns and a sinus lift. This entailed five trips to Budapest. Each time I was treated with respect and professionalism. The total cost including the five trips and accommodation was dramatically lower than I would have paid in my home country of Australia or my adopted country of France where I now live. The final fitting of my new smile was by Dr Gabor Toth who is not only a professional but a true artist!

Forget the rest try the best

Back in 2014 I turned up at Helvetic clinic with a multitude of dental problems and feeling miserable. Now I have finished my treatment I couldn’t be happier. I cried a bit when all was done, not just because at last I had my gorgeous teeth and healthy mouth, but because I was so thankful to the staff and physicians at Helvetic who have been professional and holistic in their treatment of me not to mention their friendly, helpful kindness towards me. I can’t recommend Helvetic enough, their skill, assessment and advice together with their state of the art surgery and treatment rooms are above the standard of care in the UK. Not to mention the lovely admin and personal staff that look after you and assure you of any fears that you may have. If you want all of the above that is an affordable excellent service please don’t hesitate to go to Budapest and have the best. To all the lovely bunch at Helvetic XXXX Pauline

Fortunate to have found the best!!

Dear Dr. Laszlo
I am now home recovering very well from implant surgery carried out last week by you. I first visited in Oct last year, and discovered I had periodontal disease in my lower jaw, whereupon you did surgery to remove the problem, I was very nervous, but you have this wonderful ability to put your patients at ease and relax the situation, of coping with oral surgery, I also had a sinus lift on that visit and my general health has incredibly improved over the months thanks to you.
So now back in Budapest last week 10 implants 6upper4lower, how priviledged I feel to have found you with your wonderful skilful and professional talents making what is a traumatic experience easier to cope with..
You and the whole of your team offer professional care and judgement carried out with compassion.
I am so grateful to you all, a heartfelt thank you, I look forward to my next visit in Sept to receive my long awaited teeth, but like any successful project you must first of all lay down solid foundations, and that I am sure is what all your future patients will find, if you are lucky enough to discover Helvetic clinic Budapest, you can attend with total confidence Xxxx

Hi, I just started my dental repair project involving 1 implant lower mouth, 1 implant upper mouth with bone-extention, preparation of one root to be used for impant, approvement of another already treated root for implant, and finally installation of 4 well adapted porcelaine crowns - all material to be used of highest quality. The first visit with preparation of my mouth for implantation was a pure pleasure delivered by very competent and friendly personnel. I found it very strong that the sales persons clearly distinguised their offer between real needs and cosmetic needs, which made it easy for me to choose the appropriate treatment for the next two visits. I look forward to continue to work with Helvetic Dental Clinics in Budapest - next visit mid june, 2017.
Kind regards and thank you

Fantastic experience

The staff were very thorough in explaining the procedures and upfront about what the associated costs would be. They were so meticulous about their work and I had a very comfortable experience. The best experience I've had at a dentist in my life.
Helvetic clinic staff are very friendly, professional and accommodating. They arranged a consultation on short notice and made arrangements for accommodation and Transport for when I arrived in Budapest. My experience was fantastic and looking forward to going back to complete my treatments.

The clinic is ideally located in the centre of Budapest, important, when you have to stay for 12 days. Facilities are very modern, the staff is pleasant and the dentists very qualified. Only one minor remark, regarding the temperature of my room that I could not manage to regulate, either too warm or too cold (I was in room 317).
