Dental Surgery Vacations

Dental Vacation Plans & Travel Packages For Single Men: At first thought, it may seem a bit strange to combine the objectives of romance and dental surgery or treatments - into a singles vacation package! But, if you are a single man who would like to seriously explore opportunities of finding a special woman and also have some dental health issues that you would seriously like to resolve, then why not?

This looks like good base material for a Monty Python routine.

Can you share a nice refreshing can of Pepsi Blue with your special woman?

Ooh! Ooh! I know what Pepsi Blue means too and am delighted to prove my in-crowd worthiness by snarking about it!

Uh... congrats dmd? I'm way too much of a recluse and participate rarely enough that I have no illusions that I'm part of some "in crowd." I'm sorry I offended you.

No offense, billysumday, but your post reads like spam and has one link to a site selling vacation packages. It's a little weird, sure, but hardly fpp worthy on its own. There are other similar services out there, and probably some articles written about them etc. etc.

My own opinion, of course. Perhaps my spam sensor needs to be recalibrated, but I think this post needs to be reworked.

You can really imagine hordes of women flocking to where the single guys hang out, who can't afford dental treatment back home.

On the bright side, they have packages for all budgets!

Maybe all the women who go there have an interest in men's dental problems. Or, y'know, a fetish. Maybe they like to look inside a guy's mouth, check out his gum disease, and put ---

OK, that's enough.

If you want my relevant opinion it looks like they're basically an international pimp for impoverished girls and doctors who don't want to/can't work in the US.

Or do you think you don't have to pay for their "romantic options?"

polyhedron's onto it. The selling point is surely that - with relaxed professional standards - the working girls are allowed to, er, play a role in the action in the dental surgery...?

I'll bet they could sell a lot of these holidays in Britain.

See what I did there? 'Cuz British teeth all look exactly like this! Ha ha! Pepsi Blue!!! Wheeee!

A Russian-born U.S. citizen acquaintance just got back from a "dental vacation" in Georgia, where the same dental surgery that would have cost him $7000 in the U.S. cost him $1000 (including airfare). He says he told the dental clinic there they should start marketing tourist packages to the U.S.

A few days later, here's this post. U.S. health care costs are insane compared to the rest of the world. Expect a lot more of this kind of cheesy marketing, but the cheese shouldn't overshadow the fact that there's a real, honest market for this kind of dentistry.

Cheap cosmetic/elective surgery offered with a vacation package is nothing new. I've been aware of similar services for years.

This is the first time I've seen hookers thrown into the package.

Understandable. Normally, you would throw your package into the hookers, not the other way around.

miss lynnster: surely you meant to link to this.

I know I'd want to go to former soviet republics for my dental work. You just can't get decent steel fillings in the US of A.
