having to catch a flight for every dental appointment and take time off work is a pain
Indeed. It can work out to be more expensive than getting an implant, for example, in the States. The price I was quoted here was $2500, or 10,000 PLN. With travel and time off work included, it would be cheaper to have it done here than to get it done for 7,000 PLN in Poland (which is double what I expected). Plus my insurance would cover a lot of that in the States, but not in Poland. It would make sense only if you had several implants to be installed. Even then, it would be cheaper for me to fly to Ecuador and get it done there than to have it done in Poland.
